milquetoast
\MILK-tohst\

DEFINITION
noun
: a timid, meek, or unassertive person

EXAMPLES

Brian was such a milquetoast that he agreed to work extra hours on Sunday even though he had already told his boss that he needed that day off.

DID YOU KNOW?

Caspar Milquetoast was a comic strip character created in 1924 by the American cartoonist Harold T. Webster. The strip, called "The Timid Soul," ran every Sunday in the New York Herald Tribune for many years. Webster, who claimed that Milquetoast was a self-portrait, summed up the character as "the man who speaks softly and gets hit with a big stick." The earliest examples of "Milquetoast" being used as a generic synonym for "timid person" date from the mid-1930s. Caspar's last name might remind you of "milk toast," a bland concoction of buttered toast served in a dish of warm milk.

Explanation needed!
This panel is "imagining the best of all possible outcomes" for Nightpumpy!  ...surrounded by all his friends who are cheering him on as he comes to after being clobbered by a kitchen sink thrown by none other than "God" - of Stream of Consciousness Comics! - not the one true God of you and me!....anyway, this is only fantasy, let's hope the outcome of this story thread has this good of an ending, we can always hope anyway!
