Reverend Parsimony

Reverend Parsimony Pic


DIAGNOSIS: Paranoid Personality Disorder

CASE HISTORY: Each Sunday, Reverend Parsimony wakes up with the dawn, runs a cold comb through his rich, cloud-white hair, and marches down to the local parish to proselytize to a handful of absolute sinners. Wherever he goes, he warns townsfolk of the dangers of perdition with an awkward turn of phrase and a slight stutter. His fear-based old testament preaching style is the basis of his many self-published religious pamphlets including God Sword, A Guide To Hell’s Hot Wallpapers, and Say Your Prayers and Pray your Stairs.

NASA Mission Control


DIAGNOSIS: Paranoid Personality Disorder

CASE HISTORY: In the early days of NASA, decisions weren’t made with analytics and research; decisions were made with balls. Big, brass balls. It was a man’s world. A confusing, analog man’s world with pictures of naked ladies scotch-taped to the mainframes, where supervisors were your drinking buddies, and no one cared if you came into work smelling like a Las Vegas peepbooth. As long as you did your job and got those birds in the sky, no one ever said word one. Some say that these halcyon days of cigarettes and satellites are long gone, but research shows that these space-cowboys are still mounting up and riding high.
