Are You a Screwball? Metaphors
A post at York Town Square provides a definition of "screwball", the definitive one. It sounds logical to me, though a fast search doesn't reveal any confirmation. But I know filter screens can clog, and I can imagine bouncing balls could vibrate it enough to keep it clear, and such motion (brownian, perhaps) would be erratic, erratic enough to lead to the modern definition of "screwball".
