Come the Raw Prawn

I never use this phrase, and neither does anyone else I know, but since it seems to be becoming iconic, it might be worth a definition.

Come the raw prawn: to try and fool someone else.

The only way I've ever heard this used is as an accusation.

"Don't come the raw prawn with me!" or "Are you trying to come the raw prawn?"

For my American readers: prawn = shrimp.
