When I was much younger, a free and low-effort source of entertainment was saying things that would wind my younger brother up.

Whether or not the things I said were true was completely beside the point, as was whether or not they were amusing or hurtful or whatever else. The point was that I could say something that would turn him into a red-faced, sputtering human fireworks show which I could then sit back and enjoy.

What made me think of this is the level of political discourse in our country. Asshole older brothers seem to be everywhere.
