Blowing smoke up your ass...

English has so many interesting expressions. Like this one: I am not blowing smoke up your ass!

I cannot tell what this means, but I am pretty sure it is not meant to be taken literally! Beekeepers blow smoke to calm bees, perhaps that is how this weird expression started. Apparently it means to BS someone with a line of happy talk. Colorful and evocative, without exactly clear what is being evoked. A pretty picture, you will admit...
