Fully Qualified Jerk

I found myself musing the other day about what it would take to be a Fully Qualified Jerk (FQJ). This musing was prompted by what struck me as an odd comment. The person I was talking with (Call him Harold.) was upset with someone else (Call him Joe.) Harold said, "Joe is turning into a real jerk." This got me to musing. Apparently, Joe isn't a real jerk yet but is progressing in that direction. The what/why of turning into a real jerk is not clear to me but, according to Harold, Joe is doing it. I was drawn to the conclusion that some jerks are more qualified and others are less qualified, with "real jerks" being the most qualified. There then must be at least a few jerks who are fully qualified. If we knew who they are, we could give them the title Fully Qualified Jerk (FQJ) Tune in to learn what it takes to be an FQJ.
