Not the sharpest tool in the shed

OK, so what did you think this post was going to be about? Did you expect a rant about someone who did something incredibly stupid?

Well, I was just thinking about all the phrases we have to describe people who are maybe not all there or are a little crazy.

Here are a few I can think of right now. I know there are more but they aren't coming to me.
Not the sharpest tool in the shed.
1 beer short of a 6 pack
1 sandwich short of a picnic
He's fallen of his crumpet.
Three sheets to the wind (someone very drunk)
Can you think of some others? Are there any family specific phrases you use. I don't know if Three sheets to the wind was just something my mother used to say or is it widely known.

Just thinking about things.

Just thought of more:

Doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground. Or the variation doesn't know his ass from his elbow.

Doesn't know shit from shinola.

    Quoting rm_jerseygem70:
    I love this blog! OK ready here you go!
    One French Fry short of a Happy Meal
    One brick short of a load.
    He couldn't cut soft butter with a hot knife!
    He couldn't fight his way out of a wet paper bag.
    He paddles his own canoe.
    His elevator doesn't go up to the top floor
    He's not playing with a full deck of cards
    The porch light is on but nobody is home
    He's having a brain fart
    Dumb as a box of rocks
    The cheese slid off her cracker.
    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.
    Her sewing machine's out of thread.
    His antenna doesn't pick up all the channels.
    His belt doesn't go through all the loops.
    Receiver is off the hook.
    Skylight leaks a little.
    The wheel's spinning, but the hamster's dead.
    So don't get on my bad side I have

I only have one. "There must be a screw loose".
