A woman in Louisiana ended up setting her own house on fire after attempting to exorcise a 'possessed' sofa.
The peculiar series of events occurred back on August 11th when 53-year-old JoLynn Winn of Arnold Road in Louisiana set her sofa on fire because she believed that it was possessed by the Devil.

While it's unclear whether or not this apparent 'ritual' was successful in extricating the demon from the furniture, there was no mistaking the subsequent fire that quickly tore through the property.

Suffering from smoke inhalation, Winn was ultimately rescued from the building by firefighters.

She was also arrested by the fire marshall for starting the blaze in the first place.

They do have wards in many hospitals to treat the wackos.  Is that the PC term?  Maybe "Individual in a different reality"?  Or "individual with alternative perceptions"? At any rate she extricated her house from her address.  That home will never bother that address again!

I... Wow... What drives people to do this? I mean, even if she where trying to exorcise the couch like she says then even with that she failed because burning things don't work with exorcisms. Seriously, what is she trying to do? Bring back the Salem Witch Trials or something? Also reminds me of this meme.
