bonkers - ok
holibobs - not ok

Ditto vodka!
Calling someone insane, crazy or mad is pretty insulting compared to bonkers. It's quite lighthearted IMO.

I'm not sure holibobs is a word...
My iPhone doesn't recognise it.

Sorry Joyful but for the first time ever I have yo disagree with you. Bonkers is a great word.

I like bonkers because when I say it I know I really mean 'fucking loony' but I am not sweary. grin

I like the word Bonkers.

It reminds me of Dizzee Rascal blush

I would love to spend an hour with him

It's just so descriptive.

We like 'bunkers' in our house.

Seems like it's a word the YOU just don't like. I like it.

In the 80s bonking meant shagging. (Tangent.)

BillysBeastlyBogeyman Sun 28-Oct-12 09:52:45

In this house it still does Quadrangle <retro>

Kitty it means exactly the same thing, how is it more or less insulting?

Cunt means the same as vagina but is a lot ruder.

I like bonkers, it's a great word.

I love bonkers, my five year old even uses it to express annoyance 'oh bonkers!' We are also a holibobs house, our honeymoon was known as honeybobs. So YABU.
