In Other Words

Since it is never correct to refer to someone as stupid, please refer to these “nicely put” references.

A few clowns short of a circus…

A few fries short of a happy meal…

The wheel’s spinning, but the hamster’s dead.

All foam, no beer…

The butter has slipped off the pancake.

The elevator doesn’t go to the top floor.

The cheese slid off the cracker.

Body by Fisher, brains by Mattel…

Couldn’t pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel…

H/she fell out of the stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down.

Doesn’t have all his dogs on one leash…

Her sewing machine’s out of thread.

One Fruit Loop shy of a full bowl…

The antenna doesn’t pick up all the channels.

The belt doesn’t go through all the loops.

Not the brightest bulb in the marquee…

Not the sharpest knife in the drawer…

Not wired to code…

A photographic memory, but the lens cover is on…

Gates are down, the lights are flashing, but the train isn’t coming…

If brains were taxed, he’d get a rebate.

She stayed on the Tilt-A-Whirl a bit too long.

About twofelines

What to say? I love my family and friends. I also love kids, cats, and books. Oh, and potato chips and Cheez-its. I am a retired teacher who still loves to be in the classroom, so now I am a substitute teacher.
