“Folie a Deux”

I’ve always been fascinated by Folie a Deux, a psychological disorder characterized by two people sharing the same delusion(s). Considering the recent behavior of actor Randy Quaid and his wife Evi Quaid, people are starting to consider whether or not the disorder could be an explanation (link).

Remember when Mr. Quaid was just Cousin Eddie from National Lampoons? I do.

    I would add Chuck Norris and Gena O’Kelley to this list. This topic interests me too. I think it’s tremendously easy for couples to isolate themselves and feed off their own bizarre abstractions about the world. This phenomenon most likely extends to ideological/belief groups who keep to their own kind as well.
