Because of the blue skin, elephant headed and turtles all the way down?  At least they play well with others and don't blow people up, assuming my sources are good.
I think it depends on what we all mean by mindblowingly-batshittery most. If you're thinking about which has the most unbelievable stuff in it, Hinduism definitely takes the cake in my opinion. If you're talking about whose followers do the craziest stuff, Hinduism is probably least deserving of that title at this point.

I was thinking more of the caste system and dharmic fate.

As for the 'playing well with others bit', they're really no different than another religions.  Run-of-the-mill Hindus tend to stay home and mind their own business.  Hindu extremists have a proud and time-honoured tradition of killing people who have the gall to disagree with them.

The caste system was originally based on profession. At some point the people made it based on birth, and then all hell broke lose. 
And yeah, Hindus have their share of extremists who are just as bad as extremists in other major religions. I think that for the most part, the percentage of total Hindus that are Hindu extremists is not as much as the equivalent in other major religions, which may make Hindus seem comparatively peaceful.

Mother-in-law lords it over the wife? Yes, absolutely. Though as with all other things, it's changing. There are far more nuclear families now, and many wives who lord it over the mother-in-law, at this point. The acid thing.... never heard of that.  Think

I just don't know whether to be proud or offended that you did not include The Church of the Rising Penis (all rise or kneel as the spirit moves you).
Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?

Any religion that has a flying donkey gets my vote.

While I voted for “all” I will say that perhaps Mormonism takes the cake for the major religions.

Nothing weird about that one.  You wouldn't be the organist at your church by any chance?
