unctuous \ˈəŋ(k)-chə-wəs, -chəs, -shwəs\ adjective: 1 a. fatty, oily, b. smooth and greasy in texture or appearance, 2. plastic {fine unctuous clay}, 3 a. full of unction, b. revealing or marked by a smug, ingratiating and false earnestness or spirituality

Etymology: Middle English, from Middle French unctueus, from Medieval Latin unctuosus, from Latin unctus act of anointing, from unguere to anoint

Sklonklish has been around for over ten months, and unctuous is only now making an appearance. Unbelievable.
