    Smoke on that

    Smoke on that.
    ************************************************** *********

    What is the meaning of "smoke on that" in the above sentence?

    Basically - chew on that statement. Think about that statement. Consider what is being said in that statement

    Dear Anglika,

    Is Smoke on that a proper English, a polite English that I should follow the usage for my daily writing and conversation?

    No, it's not good English, you should avoid using it.
