Quotes: Jerk Jock
Letter upon his jacket, medal around his neck,
Pin on his chest, and mind on his rep,
He only dates models, drinks his soda from the bottle,
When he walks, he waddles, and he ain't never lost a squabble.
He put you in a locker and took your girlfriend to prom,
He's in your life every day and you can't wait 'til he's gone
But 'daddy' owns a business, so it won't be long
Before he inherits it, makes carats and sings a rich man's song.
Eyedea, "Big Shot"

The first story is about these jocks who are totally evil, because all jocks in movies are evil. When you see a guy in a football uniform in a movie, that's just like seeing dudes dressed as Nazis. It's a cinematic shortcut.
Mr. Satanism, reviewing Campfire Stories

Chris: Kudos to Smallville's casting department for finding an actor who looks like the resident smarmy jerk in every high school ever. I could watch Pete bounce a basketball off that kidís head for hours and get as much out of it as four years of therapy.
David: Yeah, he looks like the stereotypical high school jock douchebag in every single high school drama. Heís just lacking some acne, but the small gut plus the letter jacket plus the shoulder-length unkempt hair = That Guy You Totally Couldnít Stand.
Chris Sims and David Uzumeri on Smallville ("Craving")

"That twat everyone wanted to murder in school due to his/her massively inflated ego, self-obsessiveness and downright sadism. Generally the bully, and often has repressed issues of their own, they are driven insane by the voices in their head telling them to be a conformist, and so drive everyone around them insane by doing the same thing, and yet ironically promotes himself/herself under the nebulous moniker of a 'rebel'. Murderer of self-worth, dignity, individualism and everything a modern society professes to stand for, yet promoted in the media and society in general as a great role model. Generally fails in life due to thinking they were too 'cool' to get a job, or a house, or a source of income, and more often than not forced by terrible circumstances to work for the very nerds they were bullying."
