He may not be as dumb as a box of rocks but he could be a nimcompoop, muttonhead or other ways to say stupd.

Stupid is as stupid does.  Forrest Gump.

Merriam-Webster looked up “seven old-fashioned and obscure ways to say ‘stupid.’ “

  1. They didn’t mention “dummox,” which is either a combination of “dumb” and “ox” or a variant of “lummox” (or both). And it may be a regionalism or perhaps a coinage of the third-grader who set next to me 60-odd years ago. In any case, it’s a useful word even if Webster doesn’t recognize it. (“Lummox,” by the way, has been around since 1825. Thus sayeth Webster.)
