    Piss it down

    A: “Supposedly she staggered home and her eyes were wide open. Like the stars, Mr. Dyk here said.”
    B: “The stars? How so?”
    A: “They were sparkling. I mean it must have been a shock. Her head was all covered in blood.”
    B: “Can’t knock down a wall with your head, the way to go’s to piss it down. Ho-ho!”
    A: “Why, Mr. Krebs!”

    I took those lines from Case Closed, Patrik Ourednik. Here, two people are talking about a car accident. However, I cannot get what 'B' means in the red sentence. Could you help me out?

    PS: 'B' is a funny guy, supposedly.

    Re: Piss it down

    I guess he's trying to make a joke and say that instead of hitting the wall with your head, it's easier to destroy it by urinating on it.

    I suppose the joke is supposed to be that although it's less physical effort to try and destroy a wall by urinating on it, it would take a really long time. Slower but easier.

    Re: Piss it down

    However, they both know she was hit by a car, why would he make a joke about hitting a wall?

    Re: Piss it down

    Her head was injured and bleeding, so he's insinuating that she was banging her head against a wall.

    I suspect that if we were to read the rest of the story, we'd see that Mr. Krebs is some kind of odd character. The lines may be to establish just how warped his personality is, perhaps.
