“Nothing upstairs”

“When you say that an individual has nothing upstairs, what you mean is that he/she is not very intelligent. He/she doesn’t have any brains.” In other words, the person is very stupid.

Example:  “You can’t expect too much from Jai. He has nothing upstairs.”* “According to many of my friends Bush has nothing upstairs; he has been telling the world that he just didn’t have the intelligence to stop 9/11 from happening.”
