Getting mad and being mad are a familiar topic for funny memes: today’s collection of our 20 best mad quotes cover both types, and more.
For the internationally-conscious among you (cough!), you’ll already know that the English language entertains two different commonly used meanings for the word ‘mad’ — one being north American. In the United Kingdom, the word mad refers to mental illness. If someone is described as ‘mad’ they are being described as being mentally challenged in some way.
In the United States, on the other hand, it’s common to use the word ‘mad’ to mean anger. When someone describes themselves as ‘mad as hell’ they are not intending to alert people they are mentally ill. They are saying they are angry.
Understandably, this alternate usage of the word ‘mad’ has been the frequent cause of misunderstandings between English-English speakers and American-English speakers.
But due to the overwhelming spread of United States culture, in the form of movies and television, the ‘alternate’ usage of ‘mad’ as referring to anger is becoming accepted in the United Kingdom — although in a new ironic form, with conscious reference to the fact that it’s not ‘proper English’.
Today’s collection of ‘mad quotes and sayings‘ covers both English and American-English forms: take your pick!
