Ser más corto que las mangas de un chaleco
In English?

Rusty July 15, 2009 08:21 PM

to be daft, to be really dumb, to be dumber than dumb

To be dumber than a doorknob.
To be about as smart as a rock.
The lights are on, but no one's home.

He's ...
as sharp as a marble
two fries short of a Happy Meal
not the sharpest tool in the shed
not the sharpest/brightest crayon in the box
one bulb short of a Christmas tree
a few cans short of a six-pack

There are many more here (check out the link I provided in that thread) and here. We can help you choose our favorites. ;)
