The people drawn to the psychiatric profession are mostly insane themselves.

Pretty much this.

Also - comments on a Buzzfeed link - when did this trend start?

Ah.  Corporate blame-shifting.

"We, as a company, did unto ourselves by hiring as our new top leader somebody who really farked up" = "Some stranger tried to kill us with a bomb".

Unfortunately, they did not notice until to late that his business card actually read: "Psycho The Rapist"

kind of reminds me of what's going on at the local university.
So the last President got snookered by a scam artist (pretending to be fronting for a Stevie Wonder show), among other things, so she's quitting and the search is on for her replacement.

I swear, I heard on the news that "The search committee is considering bringing in an interim President to fix the problems before a permanent President is appointed".

Ah.  So you idiots want some sort of Winston Wolf to show up and fix the farkups of the last Chief Executive, but without wanting the pay or title of Chief Executive, so that the next Chief Executive is not saddled with the problems caused by the last one-it's been fixed by our miracle All Work No Pretension Interim farkup-Fixer.

and I might add, originally, the President now leaving in disgrace...wanted the University to pay out the rest of her contract.

Yes, that's how chief executives think.  "You're firing me?  Pay me the rest of my contract as if I was working."

Sometimes, you don't want a Winston Wolf, you want a Quint.

That's why they make the big bucks.

After so many years at Fark I am incapable of not reading the word as "the rapist."

It's both amusing and disturbing.

Why don't they just merge with Sears and get their downfall over with?

Fark anyone who criticised the "new" JCP. The prices were actually lower because there was no bullshiat inflated prices, no coupons and sale schedules you needed a 3-page handout to understand.

With those terrorist acts you at least knew they would be over and there was some sort of plan behind them.  Not so with corporate reshufflings.

Hahahahahahaha....oh god this is GREAT!!! I worked there when all of the "upheaval" started, the got rid of any/everyone that had an ounce of common sense! Combined with the fact that they no longer hire full time employees unless they are management, means they have high school kids who know nothing about any products they sell, and don't give enough of a shiat to learn. I protested when it started, corporate came in to tell me that ours was the only store in the company that was having issues, and that I should stfu or gtfo!
