    adj.
    Enormous; huge: a mondo list of pizza toppings.
    adv.
    Extremely; very: a mondo big mistake.
    --------------------------------------------
    [From mondo (bizarro), very bizarre, from Italian Mondo (Cane), (A Dog's) World, name of movie with bizarre scenes that was a cult favorite in the 1960s.]

    I once saw a double feature of Mondo Bizarro and Mondo Freudo. I thought it meant "world" in Italian.
