 To have an ace up one's sleeve = tto have an ace in the role  (neither is related to "not playing with a full deck")


The following expressions are but two very common ways to say stupid/crazy.

" To not be the sharpiest knife in drawer"

"To have a few cards short of full deck"




The lights are on, but nobody is home

Not to have both oars in the water

To be shy a sandwich from having a picnic

Not to be the sharpest tool in the shed

And many, many more...
