Someone spent some time with a thesaurus while writing this strip.
Sycophancy has many guises.
My new word for the day.
Myr·mi·don , ˈmərməˌdän,-mədən , noun
1. A member of a warlike Thessalian people led by Achilles at the siege of Troy.
2. A hired ruffian or unscrupulous subordinate.
noun: myrmidon; plural noun: myrmidons
1. “He and his myrmidons were ensconced in a bunker.”
2. “As her boss’ myrmidon, her task was to cook the company’s books.”
Good thing she didn’t use ‘stepandfetchit’.
I would think the phrase “professional brown-nose” would be more accurate.
If he were the Fire Emblem type of myrmidon, he could aspire to be a swordmaster. Maybe even a trueblade.
I thought it had something to do with ants.
