To make someone who's trying to seem important less important. Derives from the piss-boner men wake up with in the morning, it's a fake boner. If you took the piss away, there would be no boner. Do you see?

That's the original meaning, however taking the piss now means just giving someone a ribbing and in the most part not meaning to be malicious.
Original meaning:

Guy 1: "Hey guys, what do you think to my awesome new haircut?"

Guy 2: "I think you look like a fucking prick, mate...you look like a real slob".

Other guys: "Haha, Guy 2 really took the piss out of guy 1!"

Meaning as it is now:

Guy 1: "Man, I only got a 45 on my last assignment"

Guy 2: "Haha that's fucking shit!"

Guy 1: "Don't be so mean"

Guy 2: "Cheer up man, I was only taking the piss"

To appear serious, but actually meaning the opposite - most of the time. Usually followed up by the 'piss taker' (the one who joked) revealing he/she was only joking.
'Hey did I ever tell you you're fucking pug ugly?'

'No you didn't and that hurt'

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

Making fun of someone - without hurtful intentions.
My American fiance doesn't understand "taking the piss", so she took my piss taking seriously and now I'm in the dog house! :(
