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 robot

This happened a month ago, but better late than never. I finally got around to writing about "Transformers 2," which transfixed me with its badness when I saw it in 2009. In advance of the third "Transformers" movie, which came out last month, I delved into the worst aspects of the second one:

What's the worst thing about 2009's "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen"?

Tough question. That's like asking, "What's your favorite Rolling Stones album?" Or, "Who's more likely to wind up leading police on an O.J.-style car chase, Charlie Sheen or Spencer Pratt from 'The Hills'?"
