snow job - Phrases/Idioms
An effort to deceive, persuade, or overwhelm with insincere talk. For example, Peter tried to give the officer a snow job about an emergency at the hospital but he got a speeding ticket all the same. This slangy expression, originating in the military during World War II, presumably alludes to the idiom snow under.
