The Phrase Finder
Meaning
Completely mad.
Origin
Hares behave excitedly in March, which is their rutting season. 'The March Hare ... as this is May, it won't be raving mad - at least not so mad as it was in March' - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll.
Meaning
Completely mad.
Origin
Hatters used to use mercury in the making of hats. This affected their nervous systems and, because of the tremors they experienced, they were labelled as mad. The Hatter in Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is not actually described as mad in the story; although it can hardly be called sane.

The Devil's Dictionary
Mad, (adj.)

Affected with a high degree of intellectual independence; not conforming to standards of thought, speech and action derived by the conformants from study of themselves; at odds with the majority; in short, unusual. It is noteworthy that persons are pronounced mad by officials destitute of evidence that themselves are sane. For illustration, this present (and illustrious) lexicographer is no firmer in the faith of his own sanity than is any inmate of any madhouse in the land; yet for aught he knows to the contrary, instead of the lofty occupation that seems to him to be engaging his powers he may really be beating his hands against the window bars of an asylum and declaring himself Noah Webster, to the innocent delight of many thoughtless spectators.
