Is your female boss a bit deranged, maybe to the point of needing help? Well, she might be a raging alcoholic - the Post reports on British research that claims "Female executives are more likely to develop alcohol problems than their junior female staffers." The survey amongst 8,000 workers showed that senior executives were three times as likely to be problem drinkers than women in lower positions. Discounting possibilities that the senior executives just like having fun on a very regular basis, the lead researcher hypothesizes, "It may be that women feel they have to compete on an equal footing and take on male roles and behaviors. People who find they put in effort and don't feel they are getting rewards are more at risk of becoming a problem drinker."

As for your crazy male boss, it might just be that he's an unrepentant jerk.
