Probably something of a convenience for the writer, as, just as is true of race and handicap, when it's the victim making light of their condition, it doesn't come off quite as insensitive.

* Crazy Mary Dobson loses a lot in Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}}, but keeps showing up and doing the same thing with the expectation she'll win ''this'' time. She's admitted that it fits into a definition of insanity but doesn't care, and was quite proud of herself when it paid off against Sweet Saraya.
