Not only does going bananas mean “to go crazy,” the term can point to things for which you’ve gone bananas, or obsessions. According to lexicographer E.J. Lighter, going bananas refers to the term going ape often used in American popular culture in the second half of the 1900s. Apes were seen as crazy by the mid-century media, and what do apes eat? Bananas! For example, here at Dictionary.com, we’re bananas for grammar but we go bananas when people end sentences with prepositions. #PinMyKitchen via Facebook Pages http://ift.tt/1eRNzgQ
