Hi. I am doing research for a project. I was trying to look this up on my own but I can't find any viable source online that answers the question.

I know "bugs" is old Brooklyn slang for "crazy", hence how the name "Bugs Bunny" came about.

Please help. Thank you.

@JGoldman10,
All it means here is potatoes.

They are the best new potatoes in the World. I only make a hash when Jersey Royals are available.

@izzythepush,
Okay, but I was to New Jersey in the U.S., not the British-owned territory.

@JGoldman10,
It's one of the Channel Islands, quite well to do. I bet there's a lot of American cash in the banks over there.

@JGoldman10,
So I'm from New Jersey (hence the "nj" of my username).

I'm not aware of any NJ specific slang term for crazy. Of course, there is some cultural divide and unique slang between North Jersey and South Jersey, but I don't recall any term for crazy.

@JGoldman10,
Nutzo, Whack, Elevator doesn't go to the top floor, a few fries short of a happy mean, bananas, Skitz, and many more that I could come up with. Jersey and elsewhere, of course.

@layman,
Thank you. Are there any colloquial/archaic New Jersey slang terms for "crazy" and "crazy person"?
