Subject: RE: BS: A word that means more than stupid
My new CD Dictionary (that incidentally hasn't impressed me much) does suggest that if you can't find a better word, you can at least choose from a variety:

stupid
modif.
1. [Foolish]
Syn. senseless, brainless, idiotic, simple, ignorant, shallow, ill-advised, imprudent, witless, irrational, inane, ridiculous, mindless, ludicrous, blind, muddled, absurd, half-witted, funny, comical, silly, laughable, nonsensical, daft, illogical, indiscreet, unintelligent, irresponsible, coquettish, shallow-brained, scatterbrained, crackbrained, addled, inconsistent, flirting, unwary, incautious, misguided, wild, injudicious, imbecile, addleheaded, lunatic, insane, mad, crazy, moronic, touched, freakish, comic, puerile, inexpedient, narrow-minded, incoherent, childish, anile, senile, monstrous, outrageous, far-fetched, extravagant, preposterous, unreasonable, chimerical, asinine, useless, unwise, thoughtless, careless, vain, fatuous, light, light-headed, flighty, madcap, giddy, cuckoo*, dippy*, not seeking for looking*, boneheaded*, goofy*, cracked*, dumb*, half-baked*, in the dark*, having a block for a head*, not knowing what's what*, in darkness*, dead to the world*, in a daze*, knowing nothing*, groping in the dark*, green*, wacky*, harebrained*, tetched*, damn-fool*, block-headed*, not seeing an inch beyond one's nose*, screwy*, bats*, cock-eyed*, loony*, batty*, nutty*.

Not sure the choices add much to suggestions already given here.
