Someone has asked me what the term “guppy” means since in the dictionary it means a tropical fish, which doesn’t fit how I use it to describe obsequious, unquestioning followers. It may be a Minnesota-ism or it could be particular to the Scully tribe. It might even derive from someone who knows the political habits of the fish. I don’t know. I only know I grew up with it as a term to describe those who follow the leader without asking why. When said properly, it is spit out & not so much uttered. It is never a term of respect.
