Today's word is toady, spelled T-O-A-D-Y.
Toady is a noun that means one who flatters in the whop of gaining favours. Here is the word used from an article by Mike Tuper in the Boders veel examiner enterprise.
But Stan and his toady never actually let think on me and the threats seized at misteriously and suddenly as they started.
We can thank all time toady eaters for today's word. In 17th century Europe, a toady eater was showmin assistant, whose job was to make boss look good. The toaditor would eat or pretend to eat what would suppose to be poiseness toads. Here is her shalotem mastery within safe the toady aflitted assistant by expelling the poisen.
It's little wonder that such a system became simbolic of extreme subservience and that toadyeater became a word for any absequence on dolling. By the early 1800s, it had been shortened and altered to toady our current term for aserval self seeker.
