Definition: La Toadies

In response to the person who asked what La Toady/ La Toadies meant
Accoring to Merriam-Webster Dictionary
Toady - one who flatters in the hope of gaining favors -
this led to
Sycophant - servile self-seeking flatterer
this led to
Parasite - something (someone) dependent on something (someone) else for existence or support without making a useful or adequate return

We assumed the original author added the French "La" to feminize the word and make it more elegant. If you prefer we suppose you could shorten La Toady/La Toadies to "l. t. " We hope this helps you.
