A phrase struck me as odd this morning, and Dr J claimed the phrase was normal, widely used. I will never agree that it makes sense, but I wondered if it was, indeed, a popular phrase.

So here it is: please reply with what you think is the word that completes this common phrase (And if you want to be creative, that's fine too :P )

[Poll #1344143]

Well, the phrase Dr J used was "not the brightest bulb in the barn".

Barn?! My immediate reaction was, "But there aren't that many lights in a barn."

Now this is what I think went on in that darling brain of his: I think he mixed up "sharpest tool in the shed" with "brightest bulb in blah blah blah" And for some reason shed == barn.

I don't know how I know this, but I will bet you, 10 to 1, that this is exactly what went down in this brain.

Now that the mystery has been given a rather anticlimactic resolution, I will say that I very much enjoyed all the replies to my poll. While I never stopped to think about it, Christmas tree makes sense and evokes quite lovely memories of the restful holidays.
