If you haven’t been paying attention, here’s a recap (and no, I’m not making any of this up): Randy Quaid and his wife Evi are currently on the run in Canada from a gang of wild killers called the “Star Whackers” who they say are responsible for the deaths celebs like Michael Jackson and Heath Ledger and for some reason these two believe that they’re next on the list.
Well that all sounds reasonable. Once you knock off the most famous pop singing sensation of all time and a beloved Oscar-nominated actor, Cousin Eddie and his bride seem to be the obvious next choice. The only reasonable move these two wackaloons have made was hitting the road for Canada. Canada sucks. If the Star Whackers do exist I’m sure they’re like “Canada? No way. That’s where I draw the line.”
Some psychologists have chimed in on the case, saying the couple may be suffering from a psychological condition they call “folie a deux” — a French term meaning literally “the madness of two” — a condition in which two people have a twisted take on the world. Do you think psychologists ever get bummed out when they realize they’ve incurred $250,000 of school loan debt just to state the totally obvious?
