Blowing smoke...

Posted by Carrie on August 30, 2007

I have always wanted to know how the phrase "blowing smoke",(and for anyone easily offended I will not mention the orifice where it is usually said to be blown) has come to mean complimenting someone. I was happy to find this site, but still, I cannot find this particular phrase. Where in the world did it come from??
