>>The 100lb-soaking wet assitant

That expression is common, at least here in the East, but written slightly differently as Allen wrote, never as an adjective phrase.

The visual picture of a wet assistant caught my wayward imagination. I confess it would not have been the same picture if you had described the assistant as a 300-lb sumo wrestler, either wet or dry!
