Quotes: Eccentric Millionaire

"See, if he was poor, we'd call him crazy. But since he was rich, we just called him "Sir.""
Earl about Chubby Sr., My Name Is Earl

"I had noticed that both in the very poor and very rich extremes of society the mad were often allowed to mingle freely."
Charles Bukowski, Ham on Rye

"Eccentric is Loopy with money."
Bob the Tomato, VeggieTales

"The "Crazy Flair" interview, in which he stripped down to his boxers, featured the man who was once WCW's top draw ranting and raving about how he was not only President of WCW but also President of the entire United States and World Heavyweight champion as well. This led to Roddy Piper managing to convince a mental institution to lock Flair up as a madman upon his son David's request...It wasn't until the following week, in Charlotte, North Carolina, that Flair returned to TV. He explained that Arn Anderson had bailed him out. Bet you never knew that when you're confined to a mental institution, you can leave simply by posting bail."
R. D. Reynolds and Bryan Alvarez, The Death of WCW

"Ain’t that a bitch. There’s dozens of homeless crackhead hobos in NYC who wear coats made of scabies, socks made of fungus and regularly spit out insane conspiracy sonnets to the masses. Yet, all they get is a few turned down eyelids and maybe a Canadian quarter. Where the hell is their Crazy Hobos of Comedy national tour?! We seriously need to speak to the person in charge, because this shit ain’t right."
Michael K., "Being A Crazy Bitch Is Paying Off For Charlie Sheen"

"I love watching the Cowboys play. They are a perfectly devised three-hour sports comedy every week. They're completely and utterly harmless. I can watch them play and know that, even when they appear to be mildly threatening, they will end up collapsing and bursting into flames at some point because, thanks to the Double J's inept personnel management, they are so fundamentally broken. They have no chance, and I don't think that Jerry really gives a shit anyway. Jerry's real passion is his stadium and his new fuckbus, and the Cowboys are the little museum diorama that he walks by every so often to dust off. Even when he does his weekly 'Jerry says something stupid' bit with the media now, it feels like he's doing it strictly as a staged exercise. He is on Crazy Old Man Autopilot."
Drew Magary, "Why Your Team Sucks 2013: Dallas Cowboys"

"Lyndon LaRouche is a legend. Perennially running for president, LaRouche manages to be a wingnut/moonbat on the radical left and the radical right at the same time. He has a severe messiah complex and runs his organization like a fundie cult...So why should you vote for LaRouche (given that he — as he certainly will — runs for president again)? Among the issues LaRouche is firm on, and that no one else seems to deal with effectively are:"
· Using tactical nukes to build a canal across Africa to solve the world's water crisis.
· Break the Satanist conspiracy between Henry Kissinger (and/or George Soros), the Queen of England, ADL, Greenpeace and the World Wildlife Fund that controls the world’s drug trade.
· Avoiding the imminent global economic collapse (which has been immediately around the corner since the 60s, apparently). His suggestions on how to deal with it are rather diffuse.
· Banish rock & roll (especially The Beatles), which is a tool used by British Intelligence to control American minds. In fact, according to LaRouche, British liberalism is the main threat to the world at present, and they are secretly working to take over the world and bring it back to the dark ages.
· Dismiss and end the propaganda for the fraudulent idea of global warming (a conspiracy).
· Drawing on the resources of the already existing (worldwide) LaRouche Youth Movement to do, well, whatever youth movements do?
