The Epic Crazy Lady, or simply ECL (real name: Martha Swayze), is a victim whose origins can be traced to a 2008 prank call using the Black Guy soundboard. She is well-known for her bellowing voice, long-winded rants, and her zealous Christian jargon.
Background EditEpic Crazy Lady is a very conservative and presumptuous Christian female, and during the calls made to her, she made a habit of telling people that "God needs to move [in their lives]...severely," among other such lines. She is also not shy about providing her home address and challenging the prank caller to visit her so she can "show them what a whoopin' is" if the call continues long enough.
She is usually, and quite appropriately, depicted as self-described "strong Christian fanatic" and "God warrior" Marguerite Perrin, from season 2 of the FOX reality TV series, Trading Spouses. Perrin is infamous for her televised freak-out, in which she railed at her own husband and children in a fashion eerily similar to the Epic Crazy Lady's manner, after arriving home from a stay with a New Age family.
Opposition to profanitiesEdit
The Epic Crazy Lady is firmly opposed to swearing and nearly experienced a heart attack when prank calling soundboards failed to correct their "ungodly error" after she expressed disgust and outrage over such language. She also gave a tirade after being cursed successive to her urgings of refraining from using profanities.
Interestingly enough, despite her seeming intolerance for profanities, Alesha, her daughter, swore numerous times at Arnold Schwarzenegger's soundboard, even saying she "loves being a bitch", after she answered a phone call intended for her mother. Perhaps more shocking is her husband's pervasive swearing and vulgarity, who uses "goddamn" multiple times during calls to his work. While it could originally be assumed that her husband merely used such language exclusively at his work or when his wife was not present, a call to the pair featuring a soundboard of ECL herself confirmed that ECLH is not concerned about swearing in the presence of his wife.
The Epic Crazy Lady was first called by the Black Guy, whose pervasive swearing more or less sent her over the edge. While never provoked to the point of swearing herself, she indirectly did so by telling the Black Guy that his profane choice of swear words, whatever it may have been at that certain moment in time, was how she felt about him and his behavior. After being called by the soundboards of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Joe Pesci, Tom the Pissed-Off Roofer, herself—which she astonishingly failed to discern as her own voice—and Duncan, she had effectively snapped by the time of the final call to her, which featured a Gay Florist soundboard. Her sanctimonious semblance then lost all credibility when she invoked in Jesus' name to wish that the prankster would "fall over dead...," proving that she actually had an ultimate tipping point contrary to her asserted Christian values.
