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!"

American culture on the rise!

Last night on "Undercover Boss," the president of Hooters was shocked to learn that some people find the uniforms his female employees wear degrading to women. (Earlier in the episode, he held a meeting in a board room with a fake yellow street sign on the wall that depicts two mounds and says "Bumps.")

But rather than make the orange shorts slightly roomier or provide waitresses with other options than small, extra-small and extra-extra-small tank tops, he invites two waitresses to participate in a marketing campaign to let people know that Hooters is family-friendly and awesome.

The undercover boss also says he would allow his two young daughters to work as waitresses at Hooters when they grow up, to which we say: BS.
