Just something that flitted through my mind.

Hopping mad means angry
Barking mad means crazy.

Are there others ? Spitting mad is a bit like hopping.

    My favourite - for the insane type of mad as opposed to frothy angry - mad as a box of frogs. This was from a colleague who was Canadian. No idea whether the phrase is too but I use it all the time, the image makes me laugh.
