The Word Fugitives I am looking for are the siblings of a phrase I know: "one sandwich short of a picnic." Means that someone is not quite all there. Does anybody know any other versions of this expression?

Have you seen the word we're looking for? Care to coin one of your own? Join the hunt in the Word Fugitives conference of Post & Riposte.

E-mail Barbara Wallraff to propose new Word Fugitives.
