chained_bear commented on the word lickspigot
I see. Well, I'll have to be more cautious where I choose to drink, if the tavernkeeper might be a lickspigot. Eew.

sionnach commented on the word lickspigot
lickspigot also has the meaning of 'tapster', which I would have thought meant 'drunkard', but apparently means 'tavernkeeper'.
Is this the same as/similar to lickspittle? (an even more revolting parasite)
a revolting parasite.
