An idiom describing the action plan for resolving a dillemma, which will ultimately prove futile. Term pioneered by Mr. Lahey
, in describing how Ricky and Julian from the Trailer Park Boys
will try to get out of a situation he'll put them in, but won't be able to.
"The boys are playing a shitgame Randy"
"What do you mean Mr. Lahey?"
"Those fuckknobs are climbing up a shitrope Randy. Do you know what a shitrope is?
"No Mr Lahey"
"It's a rope for fucksuckers like those three. A rope for criminals. The harder you squeeze to the rope, the more you slide down it into the shit puddle."
The shit-covered rope which you use to try to climb out of a mess which you are in. You see the shit kind of acts like grease, the harder you hold on, the faster you fall down, all the way to con college.
You're up a shit rope now boys
