    Lyin' rag

    "To hell with that lyin' rag"

    What can this mean? It's said by a resistor in the wild west.
    Thanks!

    Re: Lyin' rag

    If the 'rag' is a person, it suggests they are lowlife- dirty, etc. 'To hell with' means that the speaker wants nothing to do with the lyin' rag.

    Being very British, I'd probably say 'lyin toerag'.
