Lucas Van Praag's Secret Weapon


Given that he's a celebrity spokesman, most of you should be aware of Lucas Van Praag's pedigree by now. The mouth of Goldman Sachs was born and raised in England, graduated from the University of Durham, and prior to entering the world of PR, learned a most important life skill as a Navy officer: how to kill a man. But now that his guns have been taken away, how does manage to issue such blistering, withering statements, day after day, hour after hour, that make his opponents want to curl up and die and translated from their original old English mean approximately "I can't believe I'm forced to exist in the same airspace as you" and "kiss my ass and suck my dick, everyone"? Obviously devastating superciliousness is innate skill but it turns out LvP does have a source of power we've been unaware of up until this point. Any ideas? If you guessed cock ring, I can understand where you're coming from. Most Masters of the Universe have a c-ring on at any given time during business hours. But no, because Lucas's is a bit more genteel than that, and also, he doesn't have time to be zipping and unzipping all day when reporters come a' calling to kiss it before proceeding with questions.

His father, Louis...wore a monocle. Goldman's spokesperson does not, though he is known for a pinky ring.
