Trusty

From the Skin Fruits blurb in the Museums writeup of The L Magazine's March 17–30, 2010, issue:

Love it or hate it, the controversial museum-wide show of works from the collection of New Museum trusty and billionaire Dakis Joannou, curated by Jeff Koons, will be a spectacular survey of that strata of contemporary art so ambitious/expensive that museums can't afford it.

Misspelled in such a way to summon the words toady and lackey, and, distantly, sidekick (Rocky, not Tonto). I'm also told that it brings to mind "prison trusty."
