Every family has a weird one. That family member who just doesn't seem right, maybe an uncle who shows up on holidays with cigars and whiskey for the kids. The structure of any family would not be so interesting and alive if not for the crazed maniacs. Just to prove the point--here is Street Talk.

Do you have any crazy members of your family? Well the craziest is my sister, a happy-happy kind of crazy.
How does that work? She just has this skewed outlook on the world such as it is--and she's happy all the time.
So what is your family like? We're always giving each other a hard time. It's fun and interesting

Any weird folks in your family? I think my entire family is basically nuts, including me.
Why is that? We're basically the typical dysfunctional family--there's craziness just under the surface.

Anyone crazy in your family? Well, my aunt.
How so? She's just pretty weird and only talks to people who are weird with her.
Anyone else? Maybe I am, compared to the rest of my family --but not far off!
