TAPS. I believe so. But other coarse insults are available.

"Seen more brains on a butcher's apron".
"I've seen cleverer things in a salad".
"If you pushed a pencil in his ear it would come out the other side dry".

See also: "Brains of a pedal bin", "Brains of a rocking horse", "Thick as shite in the neck of a bottle" (bit specific, that one - Scottish.)

Thick as two short planks.

If brains were dynamite he couldn't blow his hat off.

"If wit were shit, he'd be constipated ". Old Black Country saying.

"Worra gimmer" - old Leicestershire saying.

So what would have been on his school reports if they were honest?

"This year Davis has worked entirely to his own satisfaction."
"Far from seeing the light of enthusiasm it is difficult to detect the flicker of life"
"The improvement in David's handwriting has unfortunately revealed his inability to spell."
"Foreign languages are a foreign language to him."
"TAPS"
"He has an overdeveloped unawareness."
"If Davis were any less intelligent we would have to water him."
"David sets low personal standards, but usually fails to meet them."
"Since David's results reached rock bottom he has continued to dig."

and so on.

The best, most laconic comment I saw on a file was 'SWT'.

Severe Wimpish Tendencies...

Extract from Maidstone Technical High School for boys' school report, 1968

Mayle, D.

Headmaster's summary comment: 'This is appalling! Is there something going on in this boy's home life of which the school should be aware?
Never forgot that one. He was correct in his assessment of my progress but it still rankles to this day that he upset my parents. Git.

I got "Careless, inaccurate and rather vague" on one of my school reports once.

My dad got:

"I think the only reason Andrew doesn't sleep through lessons is because he can't be bothered to."


School reports appeared to be far more brutal back in those days!

Hey you. You're such a pedant. You've got the same brains as a dead ant. As much imagination as a caravan site.....

Stop here when it comes to Davis.
