Non Sequitur

The word ‘piss’ (or, in Scotland, ‘pish’) has its origins in Latin (pissare) and French (pisser), an onomatopoeic word to describe the sound of urination. One of the mildest swear-words, it nevertheless has a major influence on a number of common British phrases.

If you were to ridicule someone for being too ‘full of themself’, you would ‘take the piss’ out of them. As the word ‘piss’ became categorised as vulgar, the phrase was modified – ‘taking the micturations’, later shortened to ‘taking the mickey’ (nothing to do with a person called Michael). With the invention of the urinal, gentlemen would aim towards a small illustration of a bee, intended as a ‘pissing point’, the Latin word for bee being ‘apis’, while a domestic commode would be referred to as a ‘piss-pot’. In Britain, the link between alcohol and urine is clear: a night out might be described as ‘going on the piss’; if a person appears to be spending his money excessively on alcohol he is said to be ‘Pissing it against the wall’ – presumably on the same principle that you don’t buy bad beer, just rent it; a ‘piss-up’ is a drunken party or pub-crawl.
