“Ass from a hole in the ground”: It’s about as stupid as a person can be.

The actual usage would be something like this:

Rich you don’t know your ass from a hole in the ground. Which translates out to, Rich you have no clue what you’re talking about.

But then someone else listening in might say “so what else is new” which is a sarcastic slang for everybody knows that already.

Now normally you would say it to someone you like in a joking way. And you probably would not use it in polite company.

Shit from Shinola
Which means more or less means the same as “hole in the ground”, but the inference is more like ignorance rather than stupidity.

Shinola was a brand of boot polish so if you were not very experienced or if you were simple you might try to polish your boots with the other.

Chicken with his head cut off;

1. Jumping around not making any sense.
2. running around in circles letting off steam
3. Working very hard and not accomplishing anything.

Usage: Rich makes post like a chicken with his head cut off. Meaning he makes lots and lots of post but none of them are intelligible.

Once again this is usually a term of affection. Generally older and wiser people say it to the youngens (children)

Watchin' the paint dry. Or watchin' the grass grow.

Sitting around contemplating the nature of things
Being lazy on a Sunday afternoon.
Or you could use it to describe someone with lots of patience. Like that boy is so patient he could watch the grass grow.

Holdin’ up a wall;

When someone is being lazy and leaning up against the wall you ask them if they’re holding up the wall.

An Indian giver.

This is an interesting one.

It means that you give someone something and then take it back.

The implications was that the Indians (Native Americans) were guilty of that . When in truth the United States made many treaties with the natives and then reneged on them whenever the land the tribe occupied became valuable

A back stabber;
Similar to a two face but much more devious and sinister. A back stabber will make you think they’re an ally then do something treacherous to you when you least expect it.

Busier than an 'one armed wall paper hanger' means very busy.

'Shrink' means head shinker (psychiatrist)

'Living high on the hog' means having a good life. I do not know the origin of this slang.

Ok, OK
"Shoot yourself in the foot" - can be used in more than one way, but typically means you did something dumb brought on by yourself.
"Asking a child how many barrels on a double barrel shotgun" - A dumb act, ask a child how many barrels, they will typically look DOWN the barrels to count them (hope that sucker aint loaded).
"Foot in mouth" - Same as "dig'n yourself a hole" typically, saying something stupid or get'n yourself in trouble (deeper) also "Keep dig'n that hole deeper) goes along with "takes one foot out and puts the other in" saying something stupid, Twice, or keep'n saying something stupid.
"Head where the sun don't shine or Head up ass" - Can't seem to see the facts in front of them, chooses to ignore the obvious, etc.
"Texas road bump" - an armadillo, see attached for a look at how most see them in Texas.
