Can you write it in Thai please, or at least put it in a sentence to give it some context.

It's been answered on the other thread I made.

 

When I look at this forum all of the posts are jumbled up date wise with ads everywhere. That's why when I couldn't find this post, I thought it was gone, so I made another.

I thought stupid was โง่  (ngoo) ..but I suppose ngao is the same.

The ngee is just part of the rhyme in ngee ngoo?

It means "Stupid!" as in "it's the economy,  stupid!",  as in "<deleted>!"

It implies the stupidity is obvious. It is often almost shouted.

Ngoo is more just plain dim-witted.

Just like in English, and other languages, there are many words for stupid, used under different circumstances, and for higher/lower levels of stupidity.

 

Stupid, idiot, dunce, numb-skull, ignorant, foolish, dull-witted, slow, dumber than a box of rocks, simpleminded, not the brightest light on the Christmas tree, etc., etc..
