go climb a tree/fly a kite

go climb a tree/fly a kite

Go away and stop annoying me. There are many other versions of these colloquial imperatives, from go chase yourself, dating from about 1900, to go jump in the lake, sit on a tack, or soak your head, also of twentieth-century provenance. All could be classed as clichés. See also go to the devil.
