mad heads
 n.pl.— «I don’t think Brooklyn slang is that different from Manhattan slang. But I’m not used to a lot of the slang my friends use. Months ago, I first heard, “There are mad heads here.” I was like, “Where did that come from?” For a while they were saying, “That’s type funny.” I was like: “What? What do you mean by that?” It means “very funny.” Or they were like, “That’s dumb stupid.” I’m like, “That’s redundant.”» —“’Our Year Is the Most Competitive Year in the History of College Applications. Or Something Like That.'” by Alex Mindlin New York Times Sept. 16, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
