: It means something like "get it into your head",
: I think...
: What is the origin of this phrase?

: (PG Wodehouse, of course, actually he writes:
: "So put that in your twelve-inch cigarette-holder and smoke it." )

Originally it was, 'put that into your pipe and smoke it', although I don't know the source. It sounds colloquial to me.
