It seems like forever since I’ve participated in one of Strawberry Singh’s Monday memes and when I saw this weeks I couldn’t resist the pull to get creating.
Meme instructions: Take a RL meme and bring it into SL. Or, if you prefer, create a new meme of yourself. Don’t forget to leave a link to your meme in the comments of this post if you decide to do one.
The origins to the term “bat shit crazy” refer back to an old-fashioned term used by Americans in the 1900’s, of “bats in the belfry“. I know it sounds so very Olde English but one of the first records of the term comes from a newspaper in Ohio!
At the top of old churches is a structure called a belfry. When the bells hadn’t been rung for many years, bats would begin to the inhabit the abandoned church’s belfry. So “bats in the belfry” means somebody is crazy/eccentric, with nothing going on inside their brain.
Bat shit crazy takes it a step further. It is to mean that a person is so crazy that not only is the belfry full of bats but they have been there so long that the belfry is covered in bat poop.
I have always felt a personal link to this original meme, for some time ago, someone insinuated via their profile pics that I was “bat shit crazy” …
grins …. maybe they were right …
because I do like bats
