: Where does the phrase "bat crap crazy" come from?

:

That's a slightly sanitized version of "bat s h i t crazy", which was discussed about a year ago. If youo type "bat s h i t" (with quotes) in the search box, you'll find the discussion.

Basically, the "bats" part comes from "bats in the belfry" or "batty", and "s h i t" was added for emphasis.
