Yup...I know what a larder is...we had one on the farm growing up...kept a bucket of lard after the "hog killing" in the fall, bushel baskets of vegetables, burlap sacks of potatoes, dryed onions, etc.

I once heard someone called a "lard a$$" and I remember how funny it sounded and I had a good laugh...well...it caught up with me in middle age and it is not so funny now!! I was alway a skinny kid, adolescent and adult but the big "M" came along and I found out what mom meant by "middle age spread"!!

The context within which I have heard that phrase used has never been a reference to the physical shape, size, texture, weight, or appearance of a person's body. It has always been a reference to a person's lack of swift movement.

Having spent a number of years in the military, I have heard such a phrase used at least a time or two.

I can say with confidence that it is most often used by someone who thinks that the other person should be moving a tad bit faster and with more focus.

I have also heard: "Get the lard out of your a$$" also used in the same context [meaning to focus your efforts on speed and dexterity of motion].

Not that I would have ever had occasion of using any such terms personally. My subordinates all worked as professionals who were dedicated to the cause and their careers, and who acted like gentlemen.
