Actually, EBT stands for 'Electronic Bank Transfer', according to the lady at the Dollar General. (Yes, I looked it up, and the B stands for Benefit, but if he 'asks 'EBT, what's that for?' he might not get the answer he thinks he will.)
I honestly hope that this guy is exaggerating 'for the lulz' as the kids say these days. Divorce your spouse? Disown your family? If he's not laughing it up somewhere, I would like to see him follow through.
For the lulz.
