A completely archaic word that means a traveling salesman for quack remedies; it’s come to mean any trickster or charlatan. It is pronounced MOLWT-a-bank. It’s the perfect word for the stars of those half-hour-long infomercials that well miracle cleaners and herbal remedies. The late Billy Mays would fit – or how about any of the hosts on 24 hour infomercial channels like The Shopping Channel or QVC.
