The vocabulary of toadying

Arnold Zwicky (via Deep Dish) has a fascinating etymology of words related to blow jobs:

fellatial (fel-lay-shel) adj. 1. Of or suitable for a blowjob. 2. Of the nature of blowjobs, servile, fawning, with involvement of the mouth in a hoovering motion. 3. Ready to suck off those in authority, usually in exchange for favors, prestige or political appointments. 4. The way things work in Washington.
