'Hey did I ever tell you you're fucking pug ugly?'

'I'm only taking the piss. You fucking filthy mongoloid.'

When one is asked to provide a urine sample at a hospital, clinic or doctor's surgery, one hands the jar to a nurse who is said to 'take the piss'.

If your taking the piss it means you are being sarcastic about something but in a serious tone of voice
Friend 1: God look in the mirror ugly

Friend 2: Whatttt?? ;(

Friend 1: Haha, only joking. I'm just taking the piss ;)

Generally Irish expression with the implications:

1) To joke with someone, to say something without intending it.

2) (Similarly), To lie in an obvious manner.
1) E.g "The guy said I was a dick, but I knew he was taking the piss".

2) E.g "The driver told the Police that he was sober, they said "You're taking the piss" and arrested him.
