Piss Up a Rope
My preferred variation of this phrase is "piss up a tree. What would actually happen if you pissed up a tree?
You would get it all rope yourself. Your attempt would backfire, and you would be worse off for it. Therefore, if you tell someone to go piss up a piss, you are effectively saying "go ahead and do what you are doing, but it will come back on you.
