      the worthless word for the day is: assot

      [fr. F. assoter < L. ad- + sot, a fool] /as SOT/
      obs. : to make a fool of, infatuate, befool

      (not to be confused with asset)

      "They assot themselves, they will not conceive aright
      of their estates."
      - Bp. Andrewes, Sermons (a1626)

      "[H]e counted on King Mark to be so assoted with Isolde
      that he would plunge his hands into her robe rather
      than deeply into the supposed treasure."
      - Thomas Berger, Arthur Rex (1978)
