MIKE: You know, Stan, I feel sorry for you.

Mike speaks loudly now, playing to the cafeteria.

Oh but I do. All too well.  You’re the man.  Captain of the basketball team.  Dates the pretty girls.  High school is your kingdom. But, People, Stan’s a bully. Why? It would be way too easy to say Stan preys on the weak because he’s simply a dick. No, Stan’s more complex than that.  According to leading psychiatrists Stan is a bully for 1 of 3 reasons.  1, under all that male bravado there’s an insecure little girl banging on the closet door trying to get out.  2, like a caveman, Stan’s brain is underdeveloped.  Therefore Stan is unable to use self-control so he acts out aggressively.  And the third reason – I’d argue that Stan suffers from all 3.
