Batsh*t Crazy

So have you ever dealt with these types of people?


They are what is commonly referred to as:

“Batsh*t Crazy!”


Some telltale signs in combination:


– Loud


– Out of control (off the spectrum)


– Exaggerated thinking/delusional


– Feelings of victimhood/paranoia/anger


– Gesturing wildly 


– Fingers tightly extended or clenched into fists


– Banging on the table/wall 


– Sharpening facial lines


– Clenching of the lips/teeth


– Bugged out/staring eyes


– Dark, hallowed-out eye sockets


– Disheveled hair/clothes


– Unkept/dirty/smelly


– In your face/space


– Potentially violent/dangerous


When you are dealing with batshit crazy…watch out!


You can’t reason with them. You can’t confront them.  You can’t evade them.  


They have you in their sights. 


Scary, right? 


BTW, I looked up the derivation of this term:


It come from “there is nothing at all going on upstairs”–such that the bells are no longer ringing in the church tower, and hence the bats are coming to rest there, and they have been there so long that the batsh*t has built up.


There is certainly a lot of batshit from what I can see! 😉

Smokem Peace Pipe

Peace Pipe
So we are almost all settled in our new place (now about 2 1/2 months)…



And in the kitchen, I am re-organizing one of the top cabinets. 



I reach in the very back, and I feel something all the way in the corner. 



I pick it up and pull it out, and it’s this really weird looking smelly pipe. 



The pipe has a face on it and a blue and red stone above and below it. 



My wife says it looks like a peace pipe, although I’ve never really seen one of those before. 



There are no feathers or pictures of Indians on it, just this crazy-face staring up with crooked teeth and a big schnoz. 



Did someone actually smoke this thing? 



Ick, washed my hands like 3 times. 



Left it on the counter to show the rest of the family.



Throw that G-d darn thing out!



Dirty smokem peace pipe with ugly face heading down the garbage chute–wonder if I should’ve sold it on ebay. 😉
