Best New Sayings

These are two expressions I invented this weekend. Feel free to use them yourself:

"Not the dumbest rock in the box."
"Not the cutest puppy in the window."

(Of course both need to be preceded by "He's/She's not . . .")

Also, I was wondering: Why hasn't anyone made a new version of Pippi Longstocking lately? Wouldn't people like that?

PS If I haven't already told you, it's finals time. Don't expect much from me, or of me. (Not that you had)

I would love it if Pippi Longstocking was redone. well, the movie. the books were awesome. the movie version was terrifying. pippi was possessed, i swear.
also, what if he is the dumbest rock in the box?

if he is the dumbest rock in the box then he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer or not the shiniest tool in the shed . . . or whatever

I never really cared for Pippi Longstockings.

I think they need to turn some of those awesome John Bellairs novels into films! I loved those when I was little. "Revenge of the Wizard's Ghost" in particular.

Also, the Bruce Coville ones; "Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher" and "The Monster's Ring" were the best of the series and certainly have a cinematic feel to them.

John Bellairs! "The Eyes of the Killer Robot"!! That book spooked me out. Probably I'll dig it out for another look over Christmas break, maybe.

What about a bag of hammers?

e.g. he/she's as dumb as a bag of hammers?
