How Well Do You Know English Slang?

Swiftly, intensely and energetically, as in The storm moved in fast and furious, or The sale was going fast and furious, attracting large crowds. This phrase is also often applied to intense gaiety, as when it was first recorded in Robert Burns's poem “Tam o' Shanter” (1793): “The mirth and fun grew fast and furious.”
