Welcome to the board.
Phrase Finder has a discussion of “piss and vinegar” which may have become confused with “vim and vigour” lately. “Vim” used to be a fairly common word, coming from Latin. The Dutch even have a powdered cleanser called “Vim”, meaning ultimately force.
Phrase Finder claims John Steinbeck is the earliest known citation for “piss and vinegar”. Others here may be able to narrow it down better. Note, however, that the last sentence in the link mispells “vig” for “vim”:
It’s pretty hard to translate, but there was an old advertizing slogan that Vim had: “Doet Uw voordeel met Vim!” To which some wags responded “En doet Uw achterdeel met Ajax.”
(Do your advantage [literally front-piece] with Vim ... and do your behind with Ajax.)
