Eris is used as shorthand for crazy in this entry of TV Tropes:

From the intro:

Quote
Look up the The Iliad (especially the Judgement of Paris scene) for one of her most famous roles therein, you know the Original Snub and 'For the Fairest' and the Golden Apple Corps.

Yeah, have fun looking for that "Judgement of Paris scene" in the Illiad, boys!  :lulz:
