look up any word, like fluffer:
 
1.
To be good at talking and indeed at convincing people to do your bidding through verbal means. Akin to the expression - "sell ice to the eskimos".

Historically an English expression, it originated because Scots are notoriously tight with money.
John: Wow that Henry certainly has a way with words...

Will: You're right! He could talk a Scotsman out of a penny.
