    A bag of hammer.

    I over heard a conversation mentioned to a not so smart person as 'a bag of hammer'.
    But I do not understand of how and why related to each other.
    Can you please explain to me.
    Thank you very much.

    Re: A bag of hammer.

    "He's dumber than a bag of hammers."

    A hammer is an object with no intelligence. If a hammer was a person, you might see it as a stupid person, because it does a very simple job.

    If you put a lot of hammers in a bag, you could say that the bag was full of stupid things. Many hammers together are stupider than one hammer.

    "He is more stupid than something that is very stupid."

    "Dumber than a box of rocks" is a variation of this phrase.

    Here are some more.
