A Few Fries Short of a Happy Meal

Although this is an idiom from the United States of America, I do love it.

You use this idiom to describe someone you think is a bit ‘stupid’ or ‘mental’.  In England, we use this idiom: To be a sandwich short of a picnic.

My first love at university was definitely ‘a few fries short of a happy meal’.  He used to take a plastic bag full of leaves to clubs because he thought that they needed a bit of entertainment.   All my mates thought I was ‘a sandwich short of a picnic’ because I used to help him collect the leaves.
