A few from another thread here:
  • A few bricks shy of a load
  • A few cans short of a six pack

    Not in the thread but classics:

  • His elevator doesn't go all the way to the top
  • The lights are on but nobody's home

    And my personal favorite:

  • Half a bubble off plumb

    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"... ;-)

    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?

    :)

    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!

    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

    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.

    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....

    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
