I learned it from some guy who had lived there, it's the English phrase.

I do not speak nor read the Japanese language, I know a few words, less
then twenty besides words used globally or in description of Japanese
culture. I read about the Shogunate and World War II. I have read
about the Ainu and Shinto. Japan's industrial reformation after the war
has helped make them into an economic power they are today. I would
like to learn some Japanese and go to Japan.

So I do not know this phrase, but I can swear at you in Cantonese.

I will use less license in reference.
