Joel sounds like one who could be destined for fame and fortune.....among Hollywood's 'intellectual elite'.

Brings new meaning to the expression toy boy. Great choice of words and great job of blending them. Brat fits plus brings out all those feelings that go with it. Using 'brat' in your verboticism was brilliant! Exceptional verboticism!
