long streak of misery

long streak of misery
a tall, thin person who may or may not be morose, gloomy or habitually pessimistic. This expression, like the less common 'long drink of water' and the more vulgar long streak of piss, is normally part of the working-class catchphrase announce-ment 'here he comes again - the long streak of misery!' which may indicate affectionate recognition or genuine dis-like. The phrase can refer to women as well as men.
