Go, go, crazy

And you thought Pickleball was crazy. Now this is crazy: The Bride surrounded by the Crazy 88 in Kill Bill 2. She wins, of course.(Screenshot.Kill Bill Wiki Fandom)

They’re coming for crazy.

Get ready.

Crazy String

Not as good as Silly String, but the latter product may survive through adjective awareness and levity.

Rainbow colors no guarantee of placating, anyway.

Crazy Eights must fold all hands.

Enthusiasts won’t be able to shed their cards fast enough. A funeral pyre of playing cards and insulting game boxes planned…probably in Portland

Crazy Quilts

Sorry. Everything must be in preplanned, approved, measured squares with computer-like programed stitches.

None of that frugal recycle/reuse of whatever fabric of any size, shape, or pattern is on hand.

No slipping’ it by with “it’s artistic” (that’s what women used to tell little kids about patched items…until the 60’s when it became “fashion”.)

Crazy has been around for a long time. 1877 “crazy pattern” quilt/ decorative throw by Tamar Horton Harris North in Metropolitan Museum of Art. (USPD/Commons.wikimedia.org)

The DC comic’s hero Crazy Quilt painted himself into a corner – getting a pink slip – a slip up he’ll be able to see. (Lack of color blinded him anyway)

Burned up over recipes for emotional disaster.

Crazy good meatloaf, Crazy good tacos, Crazy good cookies, Crazy good chicken casserole – and all of you!

No, Crazy Brownies. Even if you are vegan, dairy-free, nut-free, oil free, soy free, gluten-free, no free pass for you!

Recall the cookbooks and foodie sites featuring recipes of bad taste.

My Crazy Good Lifenot a life to like any more, Becca unless you change your adjective.

Claiming to be promoting healthy recipes and nutritional expertise won’t protect you.

Publisher’s probably already recalling your books; Social media and website being pulled down by algorithms.

Crazy Good Eats restaurant? What were you thinking?

Your barbecue was surviving COVID, but the sensitive will shut you down. Change or else! Menus, signs, advertising – all has to go in the name of a kinder, more inclusive society.

Modify the name, not the smokey meat!

Pop-tart’s crazy good characters in their “Crazy Good” series of commercials?

Kellogg’s marketing already pulled them. Of course

. “…often were a singing lizard and a group of children, dubbed ‘crazy-good kids’ who commonly frightened the Pop-Tarts and caused them to be eaten or chased away. “

Sound like a company toasting bullying to me.

Music industry note: new titles needed to make things harmonious. (Creative types are sensitive; they will understand)

10 Country Songs with “crazy” in title.

150 “Crazy” songs by so many artists, like Green Day, Prince, and Aerosmith, who should know better than to cause such hurt!

Calling it “crazy good” won’t get you a pass, Tiffany Alvord

The SNL “wild and crazy” Czech-born Festrunk Brothers, Yortuk (Dan Aykroyd) and Georg (Steve Martin) must pull down all their videos – like this one about computer dating.

Tarantino’s “Kill Bill 2” movie will have to dub in a new name for O-Ren’s elite squad of fighters, the Crazy 88.

Tacky to use a name because it just “sounded cooL” Besides there were really only 40 actors.

You know Hollywood, gore is fine, but to not to be PC is a major crime.

Statues must be pulled down. Books renamed!

…”a time 100 years ago when a racehorse thrilled America and became a legend.”

Surely there’s a better title choice than “Crazy Good: the Story of Dan Patch, the most famous house in America” 

Cats must return to boredom and bury Crazy String Thing for Cats.

Catnip is more energy efficient anyway.

What’s driving this craziness?

A recent note sent home from a friend’s child’s preschool:

Crazy, right?

Not one single thought that this “fun hair day” is insensitive to “creative” individuals!

To suggest they are wacky or something “funny” (Ha Ha or peculiar) – to single them out as different and out of everyday acceptance and expectations.

Well, I never.

Insert giggles here if you remember that song “They’re coming to take me away Ha-HA” by Napoleon XIV.

I’d be crazy to include that video as it would guarantee a wide spread pandemic of ear worm.

Nuts are everywhere….we have a lot of pine trees, palm trees and oaks…what on Earth did you think I was talking about?

Retrofitting and updating are always difficult and not always successful.

A light touch.

    Excuse me? I’m sorry. I decline to participate. I intend to stick with my crazy friends, and go happily into the next, crazy old cat lady stage of life. I may be missing the cat, and I’m not always ladylike, but I do crazy very well, and I intend to keep right on. So there! (I’m becoming happier by the day that I’m 73 and not 43. I couldn’t bear the thought of having to live in these peoples’ world for decades more.)

      Crazy glue! Will stick with you.
      ( I do hear the new WP block editor is sending many over the edge…that’s a plot – like cost efficient outcome based medical “care”?)
      Crazies’ time has come!
      Thanks for pointing out the Emperor’s wardrobe.

    In my current Internet state (as in “I ain’t got some”) I’ll have to wait until it’s restored before attempting to navigate the links.

    They look interesting, though.

    This is a crazy year! Pickleball? Still don’t know what it is. Some of us are simply going stir-crazy. As I read your post I was thinking of Patsy Cline! Knew you would not leave her out.

    We have more than our share of crazy here. We kind of like it. It’s all those other weirdos that I worry about.

    Oh, my goodness!!! That makes me crazy! PC has gone absolutely bonkers but I guess that’s low-hanging fruit. Why try to deal with the real problems, which is crazy hard to do. I hate to despair, but these days it’s difficult not to at least sometimes, The (crazy) inmates seem to be running the asylum. (I’m going to have to use “crazy” as much as possible now to see whether I can infuriate some idiot.
