chained_bear commented on the word batshit crazy
It takes an apeshit/batshit person to recognize the distinction, apparently. *shakes kewpid's hand*

Indeed. Where else could you find such learned discourse on the connotations of apeshit vs. batshit?

Excellent thinking, c_b and kewpid. I think between you, you've hit upon a subtle but important distinction.
kewpid commented on the word batshit crazy
I think apeshit is more understandable, where someone gets sharply angry after being pushed there, whereas batshit is the more pathological, and well… crazy one.
I think in terms of going crazy, that apeshit is more like going postal, while batshit is more the everyday kind of crazy, like what results from reading this list.
bilby commented on the word batshit crazy
I suppose it's localised. I have corrosive batshit on my car most mornings yet there are no apes in Australia (save those we elected to Parliament). Batshit is a problem.
Isn't apeshit worse than batshit?
I just say batshit. As in "My boss drives me batshit."
So simple, so evocative.
