Welcome To The Bitchery

I just discovered the best word: oleaginous.

How did I now know this word? It is the best of all possible words.

oleaginous ˌōlēˈajənəs/

adjective adjective: oleaginous

  1. rich in, covered with, or producing oil; oily or greasy.
  2. exaggeratedly and distastefully complimentary; obsequious. "candidates made the usual oleaginous speeches in the debate"

(source: from wherever Google pulls their automatic definitions from)

Oh my gosh. This is the best word for certain politicians and their hair, or creepy uncles and their…also probably hair.

Seriously, roll that over your tongue. It's smooth, it flows, yet you practically recoil. It's the word for people who make you want to wash out your head but you still have to pretend to smile at.
