Rare & Amusing Insults 2: Armitage as Snollygoster


Snollygoster: an unprincipled, but shrewd person. The origin of this word is unknown, but it was used to refer to dirty politics in 19th century America. One newspaper editor referred to a snollygoster  as “a fellow who wants office regardless of party, platform or principle.”

Richard has not yet played a politician, honest or otherwise, but I do think this word could apply to our smooth criminal, John Mulligan. Definitely intelligent and definitely possessing fluid morals.

John Mulligan, the sexiest snollygoster around.

One snollygoster I wouldn't mind snogging.

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. If the “sexy snollygoster” is the one above I’d go for it!! Just look into those eyes of his !! *melts* Snogging him would be – well – splendiferous!! (This apparently can mean ‘having great beauty and splendor’ so I think it fits!!) 😀
