Dog Words & Phrases

Barking Mad

Meaning: Loony, barmy, completely crazy (mainly in British and Australian slang)

Origins and History: Derived specifically from the connection between barking and the moon – because the moon is responsible for lunacy (Latin luna, “the moon”) and for lunatics, who are for that reason “loony”

*From the book Dog the Wag by Mike Darton
