    Hi amayo

    That sentence comes from an Argentinean tv show that was very helpful on teaching kids to speak erroneously. It is actually "me hirve la cabeza", and "hirve" is a badly conjugated verb, instead of "hierve". Although, as it was a spoken sentence, it might as well be written with no "h" and "b" instead of "v", to add insult to injury.

    It refers to the fact that the head got so heated that it reached boiling point. I don't remember right now the name of the show, maybe someone else does.

    Cheers.

    Hi amayo

    I'm sure you'll be delighted to hear that I've found the source of that inspired sentence: it was the favourite tag of a student called "Caballasca", iconic figure in Argentina, in a series called "Jacinta Pichimahuida" (Jacinta Pichimahuida (personaje) - Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre).

    Cheers.
