Expressions to signify that one is a bit stupid !

Message  krystynaD le Dim 9 Oct - 12:47

There are plenty of these similar style expressions that mean that someone is a bit stupid !
They are termed "euphemisms"

* a few sheep short in the top paddock
* a few sausages short of a barbecue
* a few nails short of a hardware store
* a few cards short of a deck
* a few fries short of a McHappy Meal Very Happy
* a few sandwiches short of a picnic

* not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree
* missing a few buttons on his remote control
* an intellect rivalled only by garden tools Very Happy
* the elevator doesn't go all the way to the top floor
* didn't pay his brain bill Very Happy

and I could go on and on with more ...
