I’m a Lombo, Jack and I’m KO’ed.

The verdict on the most recent post was that the phrases “É nos lombos que elas nos doem” was referring to things being a wearisome, hard labour. It’s not as violent as my suggested “stab in the back”. Lombo generally gets used for the back of a beast of burden so the mental image is of hard work wearing someone out.
