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!"

Bob Odenkirk's got a good Shouts piece in the New Yorker. Which reminds me. I'd been meaning to blog about how good he is in "Breaking Bad" as sleazy but savvy lawyer Saul Goodman. He's really good. There, I said it. I'm only through Season 2, the first season in which he appeared, but I was blown away by how good he is. Is this solid blogging or what?
