I always thought instead of saying "A for effort" it should go "A for Assed." :notsure:

Means without much effort. If it relates to "can't be arsed," then I suppose it's worse than fully-assed. If not, I'm not sure.

Interesting, here "half-arsed" usually means "did not try very hard" or "could have done better", as in "a half-arsed effort".

Quote
half-arsed
adjectiveinformal
done with little effort or care; incompetent or inadequate.
"a half-arsed attempt to rectify the problem"

HANG ON, RETHINK TIME,

I may have read your words as meaning "easily done", O Asmo.

Maybe it references a time when a plumber would come to your apartment and do low quality work while showing half his ass. So then the two were forever associated with each other.

A typical case of misunderstanding due to ambiguity.  ;)
