Hostage With Family Really Lording It Over Everyone Else

Whoop-dee-doo.’ Man, I wish he would shut the hell up.” At press time, sources reported that the completely insufferable man was taking his conspicuous display of good fortune to a whole new level by repeatedly whimpering his wife’s and children’s names in between heavy sobs.
