Person who stands in for someone else
Can be relied upon to act in another’s stead.
USING someone else on your behalf, someone more disposable, less valuable
Takes heat for another when a task is too risky
For some guys with fewer scruples, a stud looking like that .. captured, he becomes an opportunity. Looking like they can take more than most. Can last it out.
Say, you’ve got yourself a useful asset. One you can’t afford to waste. Can’t risk going too far with him?
Quandary. What to do? Easy. Put the squeeze on the stand-in. Waste the proxy .. and what have you lost? Makes sense. What have you got to lose?
Exploring the theme of the stud who gets the squeeze. Made to stand-in for another guy. Getting used in his stead.
