In The Big Bang Theory S4E12, Sheldon made the following comment on Penny's idea of the 'Shoe App':
The simple-mindedness of your idea is exceeded only by its crass consumerism and banality.
Can anyone explain what is he trying to say in layman's terms?

Simple-minded = Stupid
Crass = stupid and insensitive
Consumerism = Obsession with material objects and wealth
Banality = Boring and unoriginal
So, in layman's terms: "Your idea is stupid, greedy, and boring."
