Editor’s Corner: Stupid and Ugly

Today I have some more idioms for you! I mentioned the plethora of ways people have to say someone is less than brilliant, so I thought I’d share those. I also have a few that mean ugly—extremely ugly. Be nice and try to keep your use of these to a minimum!

Mentally challenged:

· Not the brightest bulb

· A few cards shy of a full deck

· Not playing with a full deck

· Not the sharpest crayon in the box

· Dumber than a box of rocks

· Not the sharpest tool in the shed

· The lights are on but no one’s home.

· The cheese has slipped off his cracker.

· Dumb as a box of rocks

· His elevator doesn’t go all the way up to the top.

· I’m not saying he’s stupid, but if his IQ were three points higher, he’d be a tree.

· Dumber than a seaside clam

· She is as dumb as a sack of hair.


· Uglier than a two-faced ugly person

· Uglier than a mud fence in a rain storm

· Uglier than homemade soap

· Uglier than homemade soup

· Ugly enough to stop an eight-day clock
