: : I'm looking for some good phrases that refer to sluggish situations (of people)? Phrases on the order of "You're kicking a dead horse"... except that is for a situation that's worse than sluggish! Do you know any?? Thanks, if you do.
: : Patty
: borrowed from basketball: "They're playing in soft cement."
: And "two blocks behind the parade."
How about: "Slow as molasses in January"
