    cat's-paw

    PASHIRI
    This is a very slangish word among young people.
    Literally, "run-ner" I think - a person who runs
    for his/her boss. A person available for his/her
    boss to do anything for him.
    "Bring me a cup of coffee." "Right away, boss."
    "Hit that rascal." "Yes, boss."
    Are there any such new words in English?
    Thank you.
