Hornswaggler | The culture, the humor, a bit of the sports, not so much the politics, and the workplace distraction

Hornswaggle is an alternate spelling of hornswoggle, an archaic word that means to bamboozle or hoodwink. I take my pronunciation from the late Harvey Korman in "Blazing Saddles" --

"I want rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, conmen, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswagglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass kickers, shit kickers and Methodists!"

Mo' Twitter trolling

Came across "The Office" writer Daniel Chun's Twitter feed through Rainn Wilson's. A couple good ones:

"In that magic area where the line between singers and egg-based dishes is blurred, Nelly Frittata is queen."

"I love Tony Siragusa because he replicates the experience of watching a game with a guy I don't know, who won't shut up, who I hate."

There's a really funny one among his recent Tweets that's too much in poor taste for me to reproduce here, but you can probably figure out which one it is without too much trouble.
