I have heard a couple of times recently the phrase "don't piss on my boots and tell me it's raining", usually in the context of a heated argument so I've hesitated to ask speaker what exactly he meant by it. Can anyone here help? It suggests that the person you're upset with is harming you, making an unbelievably brazen claim that they are not, and that you have seen through their meagre attempt at deception. There are a few variant forms.

Urban Dictionary: Don't piss on my leg and tell me it's raining.
Originally posted at BadAzz MoFo. Let me start by saying a few things. First, they announced that Thor was becoming a woman, which was then followed by the announcement that Sam Wilson, a black man better known as Falcon, would be taking over as the new Captain America. There was also the unveiling of a new Avengers team, which includes the new Black Captain America, Female Thor, and a line up of characters that features more women and people of color than it does white guys see above. Female Thor will be a woman for probably a shorter time than Dr. Black Captain America will hold that title for a while, just until Steve Rogers gets his powers back, and until some other writer gets the idea to have Falcon take over for Cap, ten to twenty years from now.
Two Australian expressions
When someone is trying to decieve you; taken from literally someone pissing in the pocket of your pants, but then trying to explain to you that it is actually rain, and not their probably warm piss. Often used in the context of an argument. To deceive someone using flattery. So, it means telling fib using flattery or insincere friendliness.
Can you advise if you have the origins of these phrases? And if not I wish you happy hunting. The best I can do is point to a progenitor, the slang term prawn for a fool, perhaps from the idea of a prawn being a stupid-looking marine animal. The evidence suggests that the fuller expression was a product of service slang in World War Two, perhaps in part based on this usage.
