Idioms or idiots

My Dad and Grandfather had lots of expressions and I’m indebted to them. They were the koans of my youth. One of them came to play again today after speaking with a colleague about some of our peers and whether they could master a simple operation. Gramps used to say, “some people are so dumb that they couldn’t pour piss out of a boot with the instructions printed on the heel.” That sums up what I was thinking about some of these folks today. Some folks really are dumb and some are “dumb like a fox”, another sage simile.
