There are SO many jokes around this. How about the young woman who was renting a place from Mr. Loesser, who was not only NOT a nice man, but had a son who was worse. The two of them worked out a scheme to pressure her into “favors” by getting her deeply in debt. Indeed, it worked, and some months later, she found herself walking to meeting with them for dinner “and”… and musing to herself, “Oh me oh my, I was a good person, but here I am, undone by the evil of two Loessers.”
Then there’s the boll weevil family: Momma weevil, Pappa weevil and a couple of dozen kids. One of the big ones wanders off and the littlest one scampers along, because he had ALWAYS wanted to be the lesser of two weevils.
There are probably a half dozen others.
