~ THE GRODNER EFFECT— “A person, politican or company, particularly a lawyer or law firm who is corrupt and arrogant tries to create a position in which he or the company, party or entity for which they work or represent can repress or harm an individual or individuals simply by having connections in the legal system, political connections or personal wealth. That person, party or entity gets blogged and the entire story goes viral on the Internet, causing the person or entity who is blogged about to lose pretty much everything, like our hero and pet, Jay Grodner.” Grodner is now an actual verb: Grodner [’ghræd n3r] (v): 1) To aggressively self-destruct through felony vandalism crossed with a sense of invulnerability and entitlement. 2) To be-prick oneself in public while flashing the victim card. ….
