Euphemisms for ‘stupid’

In the Eagle database (the IBM GLBT forum) today, John Martin (dailyafirmation) posted a question asking for euphemisms (but not synonyms) for ‘stupid’. He was interested in hearing both ones that people have heard as well as ones that they have come up with themselves.

He gave several examples to illustrate what he was looking for and included his favorite which I enjoy as well:
“The wheel is spinning, but the hamster is dead.”

I created three of my own with an obviously geeky slant:
1. “Seven bits short of a byte.”
2. “The link light is on but there’s no activity on the wire.”
And my personal favorite:
3. “He’s a 802.11a receiver in a 802.11g world.”

Yup, I’m a dork.
