 One I've heard all my life, He's not smart enough to pour water out of a boot with the instructions written on the heel.   

Anytime my  grandmother was about share her philosophies she'd start by saying "now as a rule".  Two that stuck with me...
"now as a rule, when a woman is riding next to a man in a truck they ain't married",  and "now as a rule,  painters and printers  are drunks".

I haven't followed this entire thread so this one may have been said before.  There was a guy where I used to work years ago who said of another guy who worked with us...

"Ole' Tom would rather climb a tree and tell a lie than stand on the ground and tell the truth..."

I always say "he'd rather climb a light pole and stand on his head and tell a lie that stand flat footed on the ground and tell the truth"

If common sense was lard, he wouldn't have enough to grease a pan

If ifs and buts were candies and nuts, we all have a merry Christmas.

My dad always told us boys growing up that "we'd tear the balls off a brass monkey"

I could go on...but I'll save them for another day.
