bone idle

Here is my best explanation:

'extremely lazy' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'one put in offer the parisian' is the wordplay.
'put in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'offer' becomes 'bid' ('bid' can be a synonym of 'offer').
'the parisian' becomes 'le' (definite article in French).
'one' put inside 'bid' is 'boneid'.
'boneid'+'le'='BONE-IDLE'
