Ways to describe people you meet

  1. Ways to describe people you meet

    Some useful descriptions of people you may encounter from day to day:


    Not the sharpest knife in the drawer

    Got into the gene pool while the lifeguard wasn't watching

    A room temperature IQ

    Got a full 6-pack, but he's missing the plastic thingy that holds them

    A photographic memory, but the lens cap is glued on

    Bright as Alaska in December

    During evolution, his ancestors were in the control group

    One celled organisms outscore him on IQ tests

    Fell out of the family tree

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

    He's so dense that light bends around him

    If he were any more stupid, you'd have to water him twice a week

    Its hard to believe that he beat out 100,000 other sperm

    My personal favorite is...

    Not the brightest crayon in the box.

    Or, with my friends who are familiar with that expression "He's a little... pastel."

    Those are great!!
    Isn't it interesting how we all have these, for the people we meet and work with!!
    How about: P.I.W.L.
    Personality Incompatable With Life.

    That covers thing pretty well too, at times.

    One of my favorites is, "Her/his elevator doesn't go to the top floor."

    another one is, "Definition of marblehead, All marbles, no brain."

    Looks like he/she got beat with an ugly stick.

    Not the brightest bulb in the box.

    A few grapes short of a picnic.

    A few bricks short of a load.

    Not the brightest bear in the woods.

    A few marbles short of a collection

    Doesn't have all his dogs on one leash

    The wheel is spinning, but the hamster's dead

    Two clowns shy of a circus

    Receiver's off the hook

    Too much yardage between the goal posts

    His belt doesn't go through all the loops

    Slinky's kinked

    His brain's so small you could put it in the butt of a gnat and it'd roll around like a bean in a boxcar! :chuckle
