knock the crap out of me


Senior Member
¡Hola a todos! Tengo dudas con una frase a ver si me podriais ayudar: "They keep knocking the crap out of me". Entiendo que es algo así como que le están pegando, pero me gustaría entender más el concepto...out of me.

Gracias de antemano.

    This type of construction is common.

    "You scared the crap out of me!"
    "He really scared the hell out of her."
    "He beat the shit out of that guy."
    "It really bores the fuck out of me."

    It can use more and less vulgar profanity. It's just an intensifier.
