The "Happy Meal" Bedlam

*"One would think he was the victim of such madness as would make Bedlam itself tame by comparison."*

Yet, be thee warned, he/she is by no means a "victim'"- she/he is a Psychopath/Sociopath (formerly clinically designated a Megalomaniac).

Beware; if you allow yourself, YOU will become HIS/HER victim, and, remember, for HIM/HER, "BEDLAM" is a fucking "Happy Meal."
