In the sentence below, what do the words in bold mean?
I'm coo-coo for cocoa puffs, lashing out on raw instinct.
I don't even know if coo-coo is a word!
coo-coo >> cuckoo - used to describe someone who is eccentric, and here used to say the person cannot resist something, in this case "Cocoa Puffs" >> puffed wheat with a coating of cacao powder.
However, there is a lack of context. "Cocoa puffs" might be marijuana laced with coke [cf Urban Dictionary]
