: Recently ,I' ve heard my friend using such phrase,I'd like to know what does it mean?Does it mean literally?

It means that somebody is gonna get a really good beating, one that will hurt him immensely.
And if that beating results in a death then, yes, the excrement built up in his system just may work its way outside the body.
