  Thank you for continuing with your satire when it is clear that you
  have been hurt and simply want to retaliate.  I was nervous for a
  second that you might engage your brain and do something wild and
  unexpected that would put my conclusions about you to shame, but I
  quickly realized I should trust you to prove them by _outdoing_ your
  past self.  Does it really feel good to be you with all that money
  and success, but _zero_ conscience?  I'm happy I shall never really
  have to find out.

  Good luck getting "help", Braggadochio.  All your colleagues are
  proud of you today as you excelled more than usual in showing off.

  Here's a free hint because you'll never be able to use it: If you
  really want to respond intelligently to someone who has hurt you,
  apologize for what you did wrong to them.  From someone like you,
  it doesn't even have to be honest to have a positive spin effect.

  Whatever I once did to you to cause your mind to snap so bad, I can
  assure you it was not with any purpose of exposing your personality,
  but this time it was, and you complied _excellently_.  Thank you.

  I hope you have some friends left who can tell you what you should
  not do now, but this _might_ become quite entertaining.  Your move.

  Does anyone remember where I parked Air Force One?
