Assunto:  A one-legged man in an a**-kicking contest
 
Mensagem:  Sure.

Another is "As busy as a one-armed wallpaper hanger."  In RGS, we used to say, "I felt like a starving man with a dull knife in a churrascaria during Semana Farroupilha."   (The first sentence is quite common.  The second was my effort at humor.  OK?)
