Do you have both oars in the water?

It has always amazed me how many ways we have of saying that someone is nuts (or not terribly bright - although the two are not mutually exclusive).

A couple of other examples - a few cans short of a six pack and a few fries short of a happy meal.

What are some others you like or can think of?

I have always liked "dumber than a box of rocks".

Not the brightest crayon in the box.
Off their rocker.
Not all there.
Have a screw loose.
Elevator doesn't go all the way to the top.

One of the best I've heard is attributed to Terry Pratchett:  "This guy was a nice day, a field, a couple in love, a basket of sandwiches, a bottle of wine, a cloth to sit on, and an army of ants, short of a picnic."
