What is the meaning of a sentence like "I pissed the wall"?
Is there any difference with "I pissed my pants"?
I can see four possibilities:
It’s an idiomatic figurative usage, analogous to something like I was shitting bricks. This seems very unlikely: none of us here seem to have heard any such usage, and Google doesn’t find anything.
It’s a literal usage, meaning “I pissed on the wall” (which is how most English-speakers would say it), but is correct in this speaker’s dialect/idiolect. This seems fairly unlikely, for the same reasons as before.
It’s not idiomatic, and is deliberate wordplay. There are a few idioms that this is analogous to, like “to piss the bed” or “to piss one’s pants”, and the speaker might have been jokingly adapting one of these.
It’s not idiomatic, and is a speech error, intended as “I pissed on the wall”, or similar. This seems the most likely to me — especially since if the speaker had actually just ?pissed the wall then he may well have been somewhat inebriated at the time…
Do you mean "I pissed it up [against] the wall"? It's an idiom that roughly means to squander or waste, as in money, an opportunity, etc.
I think that it means you urinated on the wall.
It comes from the Bible (King James Edition):
Behold, I will bring evil upon thee, and will take away thy posterity, and will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel,
In biblical usage, it means that you are male.
(See 1 Samuel 25:22, 34; 1 Kings 14:10, 16:11, 21:21; 2 Kings 9:8)
It means to waste one's money. As in, "I wasted all my paycheque on beer and now I've got nothing. I pissed it up the wall!"
As stated above - "He pissed it up a wall" means he wasted his money - ie, he spent it on beer which went through his system and he pissed it all away. "The wall" was/is a feature of pub gents' toilets in England.
As a foreign English speaker, I think the verb 'piss' can be used as a transitive verb (at least in my native language), it means piss and make something dirty.
"I've pissed it up the wall." It means I have no money or I'm worth nothing if I die. I've drank my money away in the pub and there is nothing left. Direct quote of an unknown SAS officer: "You were supposed to have written a will but I didn't...I paid lip service to that, I didn't have a fuckin will. There wasn't anything left to fuckin have anyways, I just pissed it up the wall."
