He is going squirrel crazy

I said this one today, referring to a friend who is in the hospital.  It is a conflation of “stir-crazy” and “squirrelly”, both meaning being restless.   I actually think this congruent malaphor describes a restless person better than the two phrases.  After all, what can be more agitated than a crazy squirrel?
