What is the common definition of an airhead?

Or your definition of one, if you prefer.

Update:

Mine is - If an airheads brain is placed on the head of a pin, it would roll around like a bee bee on a 6 lane highway.

    Hi,

    Probably comes from the concept that the person has no brains and nothing but air between their ears.

    Probably a similar concept of what we used to call a dumb blond or a ditzy beautiful model - beautiful but with no brains - have we not all seen them on the cat walks ? Prancing down the path swinging one leg across the other looking vacant and stupid with their pout lips and skinny emaciated bodies?

    I knew a fashion photographer once and he said the perception of a dumb model was spot on - they learned to rely on their looks and never used their brains - however I am sure like all generalisations that there were exceptions to the rule.

    Sorry if I deviated

    regards MGD

    PS - I noticed we are now into trading insults - I like the one "If you had half a brain it would be lonely"

    Someone who can't chew gum and walk at the same time.

    Someone with nothing between the ears.

    I worked with an airhead. I still to this day wonder how she

    ever passed for a Licensed Social Worker. She did have

    the sheep skin to prove it - right there hanging on the wall.

    People who don't get it and everything goes right on - over

    the top of their head.

    Tiny Tim - Tip Toeing Through The Tulips.

    A clever airhead - made money at it for a short time.

    Trading binary options online is not as complicated as many people think it is. Read here https://tr.im/8YU3W

    You don’t have to be an economics expert in order to make money by trading binary options. The charts allow you to predict the future course of an asset by finding patterns in its past price movements, and after all this what we need to win a binary trade.

    Don't be intimidated by the charts, actually they are not that hard to read and understand. Strategies that are based on reading and analyzing charts are part of the technical analysis area.

    My step-father used to tell me."If you had brains, you would be dangerous"

    I have had my airhead moments but I like to think of them as just being in my own little world.

    Once in S.Calif. of all places to find your "classic" blonde air head, we had an aerobics instructor who was over 10 min. late for the class.

    There were at least 40 of us waiting on her.

    She ran into the club, hopped on her platform and started the class.

    We in the front row noticed she had doggy do do all over her shoes!

    We told her as it was gross and nasty.

    She just made a cutie little noise and kept on dancing away.

    We told her she should clean her shoes because it was too gross.

    She did so and when she came back to the class she said,"Sorry, I have had a bad day.

    'My dog was hit by a car and I just left him in the house waiting until I finish teaching so I can take him to the vet later."

    We really went off on her and made her leave the club as we all wanted her to attend to the dog.

    That was the biggest air head I ever met.

    Here are a couple...

    Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    A sandwich short of a picnic.

    And my favorite was from years ago when a coworker described another as having a pea-brain the size of a piss ant.

    I always liked one taco shy of a combination platter, but yours is good. Your question set me to thinking: have I ever really known an actual airhead? and I think I have known one or two. But they were generally pleasant people who didn't bother anyone, lol.

    I've always heard an air head is like an elevator that never went to the top.
