To add to your list of heads one frequently hears Dough-Head used as a capacity descriptor in Nova Scotia. "What a dough-head!"

Ha--my Dad says that all the time! He was born in Pictou.

One of my favourite Down East expressions, that my Grandmother uses often (and is probably Scottish in origin), is "boughten," to describe things that one could make from scratch but has purchased instead, as in, "boughten bread" or "boughten cookies."
