2. in Canada this word denotes a 1 dollar coin that has a loon bird on one side. A Canadian 2 dollar coin, which has a polar bear on one side is called a "toony".
2. At the University of Toronto I talked to a student there and I mentioned seeing the word "loonies" on a video game in a bar nearby. I told her that in America a loony is a lunatic, that the word means that someone is nuts. She said it used to mean that in Canada too, but the meaning changed when the coins were introduced.
I guess it could also mean 'like a loon (the bird)', but what would that be saying?
Stan: You can never tell with that guy.
1)Someone who disagrees with you, and who you do not wish to speak to or listen to. This term can be used by nancy boys and douchebags such as fundies, generally to refer to lib'rals.
2)Someone who is demonstrably delusional or psychotic. Often these people will disguise their psychosis as a political ideology, generally blaming various groups of scapegoats for all their problems based on negligible or nonexistent evidence.
The most common relatively sane person to be an alleged loony is Michael Moore, who contrary to Republican beliefs is not actually insane, but simply obese and incoherent.
