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!"

Workplace Distraction

"The Soup" on Friday showed a clip of Charlie Sheen restating his favorite theme when a camera crew caught up with him and one of his ladies outside a building, maybe a motel, apparently in the Bahamas. A cameraman asked him what he was doing, and he replied simply: "Winning."

From now on, whenever someone boots up a pitcher of Natty Light in the bathroom of a college dorm, rips a bong hit or sits down for a particularly nasty deuce, if someone asks what they're doing, they must answer: "Winning."
