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!"

Bad times

Here's a gruesome story out of Humboldt County, Calif., about a man tripping on mushroom tea who cut out another man's heart.

I think there's a couple lessons to be had here:

1) Do not do mushrooms with mixed martial arts fighters.

2) If you want to make sure people read an article, put "WARNING: THIS STORY CONTAINS GRAPHIC CONTENT!!" right at the top.

Also, and this kind of goes without saying at this point, but if you're still thinking about heading up to Humboldt this summer for some R&R, don't buy any LSD. Police are warning there may be some bad acid making the rounds after a man cut off his own testicles and flushed them down the toilet because he thought they contained monsters.
