I was "googlingi" this phrase that I heard on TV today (9/4/2020) because I've never heard it before!
I believe it has a similar meaning as:
"Like selling ice to Eskimos"

This was heard on the TV show "Hot Bench" in reference to a woman giving a man $1,000 knowing he would give it back to her. ????
