It happened when I tried to brainstorm some ideas for my Mental Health Humor series BrainStorming to celebrate “Brain Awareness Week.” I heard in my Brain, “what do ya wanna do tonight?” Then echoing in my head, “Same thing we do every night, Pinky, try to take over the world!”
All I can hear in my head now is the theme song from the Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain.
🎵 “They’re Pinky and the Brain, – Yes, Pinky and the Brain, – One is a genius, – the other’s insane. They’re laboratory mice. Their genes have been spliced. They’re dinky. They’re Pinky and the Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain!”🎵
All I think of is Brain as a “brain.” I could not leave Pinky or the Brain out of Brain Awareness month.
I am not going to analyze the fact that Brain has all the symptoms of a megalomaniac. Point to note: The DSM (DSM-5) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders says there is no distinguishing between megalomania and narcissism. They are both classified as a form of narcissistic personality disorder.
Like I said, I’m not going to analyze narcissistic personality disorder…when I blog at Psych Central. What I find helpful here at Psych Central: All I need to do is search almost any mental health topic of interest and it has been covered and keeps getting covered from every point of view. Here are a few recent posts from my fellow bloggers:
