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!"

Stallone and Lungren, reunited at last

So Sylvester Stallone is making an action movie called "The Expendables" starring all sorts of action stars from yesterday and today. It looks really, really bad.

At first I thought maybe the title was a meta reference to the action stars themselves, who fall in and out of favor with movie studios and the general public, and I was ready to write something about how Stallone would be less expendable if he could act and hadn't messed up his face with the (always ill-advised) combo of Botox and HGH, but a bit of Googling has convinced me that, no, there is no subtext or intelligence of any kind here.
