Today's word is toady, spelled T-O-A-D-Y.

Toady is a noun that means one who flatters in the hope of gaining favors. Here is the word used from an article by Mike Tupa in the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise.

"But, Stan and his toady never actually laid a finger on me and the threats ceased as mysteriously and suddenly as they started."

We can thank old-time toadeaters for today's word. In 17th-century Europe, a toadeater was a showman's assistant whose job was to make the boss look good. The toadeater would eat or pretend to eat what were supposed to be poisonous toads. His or her charlatan master would then "save" the toad-afflicted assistant by expelling the poison. It's little wonder that such assistants became symbolic of extreme subservience, and that "toadeater" became a word for any obsequious underling. By the early 1800s, it had been shortened and altered to "toady," our current term for a servile self-seeker.

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.
