PSYCHIC ABUSE against NON-PSYCHICS!
A LOOK A THE AMAZING WORKS OF TAMMY
The forums at
SOMETHING AWFUL contain some of the
most wonderfully humorous and bizarre content known to mankind. I came
across this amazing documentation today, and asked the author, Melody, if I
could share it here. It's easily to laugh at the craziness of it all, but
it's a remarkable look at an insane collection of work from a woman named Tammy
who apparently had an awful lot more going on inside of her head than a casual
observer would be aware of.
Meet my parent's old neighbor, Crazy Tammy. She's been gone from
the neighborhood for about nine months now, hopefully getting the treatment she
so sorely needed. From what I understand, and from what others have told me,
Crazy Tammy is a textbook case of paranoid schizophrenia. We would have never
known about her terrible mental problem if she hadn't advertised her insane
views on giant sheets of cloth hung from her fence.
The first sign came out on a warm July day, painted on an old
piece of plywood and propped up on her fence.
My mom called me up and said the neighbor down the street had a
weird, nonsensical sign up in front of her house and that I should take a
picture. And, I'm glad I did. A few days later, that was taken down, and the
first of the "sheet" series appeared. We were intrigued, and I decided I would
document all of Tammy's work.
Alongside the sheet, she carefully arranged what looked like a
lid to a board game's box, and a comically small plastic chair:
The pink sheet only lasted a few days also, and was replaced by a
bigger, grander sheet with smaller writing, and a smaller companion sheet.
I also gathered up my courage and got a close-up of the creepy
Three months pass. The sheets are gone, everything is quiet.
We're all a little concerned that Tammy has passed away in the shit heap she
calls home, or a family member finally took her off to the funny farm.
Fortunately for us, she was just busy creating her masterpiece, the BOOK.
A few days later, she takes down the advertisements and starts
posting.. her credentials? Her driver's license? What the hell?
A few days pass, and the advertisements for the BOOK are up
Also, with the new signs, is this little gem. After
trepidation, my brother and I finally muster up our courage and run down to
Tammy's house, snatch the item, and run back to my parent's.
Inside, was a lovely red shirt with a.. I guess it's a penguin
playing tennis. The thing smelled like cigarette smoke and BO. We only touched
it with sticks.
At this time, we were brutally curious about just what Tammy had written in her
special police-and-lawyer's only book. Luckily, my parent's neighborhood watch
cop was just as curious, and we roped him into getting the book for us. I
quickly raised the $100 (it was for a worthy cause) and gave it to the cop.
After almost an hour he comes back to the parent's house with the book, the
$100, and a scared, pale expression. Tammy had been so excited that a policeman
had wanted to read her book that he was trapped while she ranted on for the
He handed over the book. It was more than I could have ever dreamed. A 3-ring
binder, reeking of cigarettes, bursting with over 500 pages of sweet, sweet
The front page reads, in giant letters:
THIS IS ONLY 1/4 OF THE WRITTEN MATERIAL I HAVE BEEN SENDING YOU AND OTHER LAW
..and from there, it descends into madness.
Here are some random excerpts of The Crazy Tammy Compendium.
Here's where she started pasting pictures of people in and telling what their
psychic abilities and otherwise are.
The book was grand.
A few months pass by, and Tammy is again quiet. On a cold November afternoon,
however, this sign pops up:
A day later, this festive addition appeared.
January rolls by and the sheets are out again! It's great knowing
we can always rely on Tammy.
Another sign wasn't seen until March, and soon after Tammy put
her house up for sale.
This would be Crazy Tammy's final sign. Months later, after what
I hope was Tammy's admittance to the loony bin, the house sold to a family with
small children. If only they knew what went on in that house.
EDITOR'S NOTE: I think it's bizarre that after doing a
search for "Psychic Abusers" on xxxgaggle, I find only an entry pertaining to
