Lazy as ludlum's dog

Posted by Toby Whitty on March 26, 2005

Thought I'd add this as phrase it didn't come up in the search. Obviously means very lazy. Apparently comes from a folk tale about Old Mother Ludlam, a witch who lived in a cave near Waverley Abbey, Surrey.
Her dog was so lazy it wouldn't even bark...
