have always considered harebrained or hairbrained an idea that was not well conceived or planned out.... not so much as mad or insane...just PPP the three P's

harebrained / hairbrained
- Usage Note: there are a bunch of cultural explanations for the meaning of this word. The more accurate is that the word is a contraction of the expression: "having a hair-sized brain" meaning that someone or something is stupid in some way.

- foolish, insane, lunatic, nonsensical, silly, softheaded
- loony, loopy, dopey, jerky, wacky, birdbrained
