Inoffensive one-word euphemisms for "idiot" please...

Also preferably avoiding any more that end with "head"... but they do need to be reasonably universal and well-understood. I don't ask much, do I?

So far I have:

twit
dolt
dope
twerp
numpty
doofus
airhead
numbskull
birdbrain
blockhead
dunderhead

...so things in that vein. Please and thank you

bimbo and himbo bring a gender element that could be considered offensive. Think words you wouldn't worry about calling your partner or kids if they fucked up level of inoffensive
