Today’s juicy word is UNCTUOUS as in fatty or oily; or insincerely smooth in speech or manner. Someone who is unctuous would feign sincerity. A hypocrite is a perfect example of someone who is unctuous. The politician unctuously promised to support gay rights knowing full well that he voted against legalizing gay marriage. The unctuous and elderly wealthy matron would only donate to organizations and charities which supported her Christian conservative viewpoint. The unctuous layer below the skin of the salmon is best removed before cooking.
