The 'nice' word for stupid. often told to people who are in fact complete idiots in order to avoid offending them. sometimes has the exact opposite effect, as people generally do not like it when people use euphemisms to avoid offense.
i told that idiot from work he was academically challenged. it had the opposite effect of what i had intended, and it just pissed him off.
