Superior Person's Tuesday!

Butyraceous, a. Looking or acting like butter; buttery. “Who was that oily young man who took Sabrina out last week? The one who complimented you on your hairdo?” “Oh, the butyraceous one! That was…”

These days canines have been embracing the latest butyraceous fashion trends.
Each Tuesday, we’ll offer up a Superior Word for the edification of our Superior Readers, via the volumes of the inimitable Peter Bowler. You can purchase all or any of the four Superior Person’s Books of Words from the Godine website. Butyraceous appears in the Third.
