"How bonkers is this? It really bonkers."

MSNBC male panelist (? Ari Melber), 2:40 PM June 8.

A quick Google All shows me "it really bonkers" back to 2007, athttp://pitchfork.com/news/27349-mia-confronts-the-haters/


but not earlier.  It's only in the OED as an adjective (from 1945), as in "it's really bonkers".
