A client has recently started using the phrase "stick a pencil in your ear" in reference to requests/work items he's asking me to do. What does this mean?

I suspect you may be wondering whether my sole goal in life is to frequently push a pencil into your ear. Please be assured it is not.
It seems like it means "frustrate" or something like that, but I've never heard it before? Related to mosquitoes buzzing in your ear at all?
