Monday Meme Challenge – Batty, Eccentric or just plain Crazy?

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.

2013 09 10 PB Meme recreate - Batshit

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

      This has always been a favourite “halloween” hair of mine. I so loved the opportunity to be able to wear it again.

        I’m surprised it isn’t part of your daily wardrobe…along with a jacket that has shiny buckles in the back 😛
