Where does the phrase "Do you have a mouse in your pocket?" come from?

Question:I know it is used to correct an individual who incorrectly uses the pronoun "we" instead of "I". For example:

"We believe you shouldn't do that"
"We? What, you have a mouse in your pocket?"

I am curious where the phrase originated from or who the original author is.

Answers:
William Claude Dukenfield. Best Known as W.C. Fields.
huh..?
W.C. Fields. He had a lot of good ones.

It means - "Don't expect any help from me."
My dad always says that to my mom. I say it to people at work (I'm one of the few girls in my department) and the guys think I'm being dirty!
