Idiom of the Week: “Daft as a Brush”


This week’s idiom is one that I use quite a lot; more than I originally thought I used the most. I normally use in its shorten form – “being daft” – which has the same meaning as this idiom.

“Daft as a Brush” means ‘Very foolish’ which would be a good idiom to using when describing people or possibly animals. I know a couple of cats which are constantly daft as brushes!

I would use it like this:

“Oh Peter, you are being daft as a brush”, “Helen, stop being daft as a brush” or “He was asking as daft as a brush”

If there is an idiom you think that I should write about; please feel free to let me know!

Until next week…
