A few sandwiches short of a picnic.
A few WMDs short of being a Clear and Present Danger.
Oh no, what have I said now...
One more brain-cell and he could be considered dangerous. Two bob short of a pound. A few crumbs short of a biscuit. 23 less the carton. A few french fries short of a happy meal.
I think the bricks one is "shy of a hod" not a "load"... ;-)
techie nerdy one: Working with an unformatted disk.
not the sharpest knife in the drawer
there's a village somewhere that looking for it's idiot
this one definitely doesn't go to eleven!
teabag - takes a little while to filter through
(some internet quote about army personnel reviews)
hes got the six-pack - but hes lacking the little plastic thing that holds it all together
|there's a village somewhere thats looking for it's idiot |
I love that!
the wheel is spinning, but the hamster is dead
Out of his tree.
Not the sharpest tool in the pack
got a screw loose
Lights are on but no ones home
She's not firing on all cylinders.
One of my favorite sayings when dealing with such people:
"Have you ever considered donating your brain to science as a neutrino collector".
You will need a physics background to get that one, which is good, as the idiot will think its a complement.
- There's a small piece of brain lodged in his head.
- As smart as a box of rocks.
- As dense as a brick.
... and my favorite from the Shawshank Redemption:
Andy - How can you be so obtuse?
Norton - What? What did you call me?
Andy - Obtuse! Is it deliberate?
- He has military intelligence.
Thick as a post.
Not the brightest crayon in the box.
He's a 75 watt bulb in a 100 watt world.
Forgot to close the <duh> tag
Lost his last screw round the previous bend.
If he had a brain, he'd take it out and play with it.
Some of the ones I learned from my dad aren't postable in polite company here, sorry!
[Edit - typo.... SHEESH!]

The brits have one that cracks me up everytime I hear it:
"He's lost the plot"
I've been using this one to describe beckham recently:
'a couple of lads short of a kickabout'
For a kind of techie saying, "This guy is a <body> with no <head> to go with it." (That, or "He closed his <head> before he'd opened it.")
One my violin teacher was fond of saying was "Just a kitty-whisker off."
And last but not least, you could say someone was "not playing with all their marbles."
But I prefer to say positive things about people . . . ;)
A few Aussie ones for you:- a few Kangaroos loose in the top paddock
came down in the last shower
if he picked his nose his head would cave in
drives uphill with the clutch slipping
few stubbies short of a six pack
(stubbie = small bottle of beer)
his lift doesn't go all the way to the top
couldn't get a job as a speed hump
three pots shot of a shout
(pot = medium glass or beer, shout = buy a round of drinks)
wouldn't know if he was Arthur or Martha
>>if he picked his nose his head would cave in
Heheh, that is gross, even I can picture that. :)
Got into the gene pool while the lifeguard wasn't watching.
A room temperature IQ.
A photographic memory but with the lens cover glued on.
Bright as Alaska in December.
Gates are down, the lights are flashing, but the train isn't coming.
He's so dense, light bends around him.
lights on, nobody's home
a few cards short of a full deck
a half penny shy of a shilling..
a coconut shy..
any more brains ..he'd be a halfwit..
like a runway..it all flies straight over his head..
( I have the same problem as Vkaryl..I'm sorting out the clean ones ..later )
dumb as a bucket of hair ...
(this one from Homer - not the one that drank lethe, the one that drinks Duff).
Delta... He loves to fly and it shows.
I don't know which is more amazing: that we all know so many different ones, or that there are so many of them to begin with!
That's almost scary in a way....
|hes got the six-pack - but hes lacking the little plastic thing that holds it all together |
ROFLMAO I have to use this one!
I have a favorite which really pisses my girl friend off when used on the right occasion. It is an anti version to a "not quite all there" expression:
|There is no off position on the genius switch |
A taco short of a combo plate.
