Subject: Made Me Laugh...
From: UB Ed
Date: 12 Jun 01 - 11:50 AM

Thought you'd laugh too...

Alternative ways of describing someone's intelligence:
** A few clowns short of a circus.
** A few fries short of a Happy Meal.
** An experiment in Artificial Stupidity.
** A few beers short of a six-pack.
** Dumber than a box of hair.(rocks and hammers also work well here)
** A few peas short of a casserole.
** Doesn't have all her cornflakes in one box.
** The wheel's spinning, but the hamster's dead.
** One Fruit Loop shy of a full bowl.
** One taco short of a combination plate.
** A few feathers short of a whole duck.
** All foam, no beer.
** The cheese slid off her cracker.
** Body by Fisher, brains by Mattel.
** Couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel.
** He fell out of the Stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down.
** An intellect rivaled only by garden tools.
** As smart as bait.
** Chimney's clogged.
** Doesn't have all his dogs on one leash.
** Doesn't know much but leads the league in nostril hair.
** Elevator doesn't go all the way to the top floor.
** Her sewing machine's out of thread.
**He's about as sharp as a bowling ball.
**He's got the whole six-pack, he just doesn't have the little plastic thingy that holds it all together.
** His antenna doesn't pick up all the channels.
** His belt doesn't go through all the loops.
** If she had another brain, it would be lonely.
** Missing a few buttons on his remote control.
** No grain in the silo.
** Proof that evolution CAN go in reverse.
** Receiver is off the hook.
** Several nuts short of a full pouch.
** Skylight leaks a little.
** Slinky's kinked.
** Surfing in Nebraska.
** Too much yardage between the goal posts.
** Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
** The lights are on, but nobody's home.
** 24 cents short of a quarter

More?

Not threaded all the way on.
Came from the shallow end of the gene pool.
Has one wheel in the sand.
Would be over his head in a parking lot puddle.
Has a room upstairs that is not finished.

Not the sharpest tool in the box
Food, rug, and a whole colony of ants, short of a picnic
He'd argue with a sign-post
One more brain cell & he'd be a plant.
Stuck on the first rung of the evolutionary ladder
Doesn't have enough sense to come in out of the rain
If brains were dynamite, he wouldn't have enough to blow his nose He's got a room-temperature IQ
Sharp as a sausage
Thicker than a whale omlette
As bright as a five-Watt bulb.

Or -

I think Toc H was a sort of soldiers' welfare organisation started in WWI by army chaplain Rev "Tubby" Clayton. The emblem was an oil lamp (like Aladdin used ) with a small flame, hence the "dim as".
BTW one of our overseas students did something silly the other day and apologised , saying:"If I wasn't Asian, you'd think I was blonde"!
