faccila te` mangia batta - [edit]
fahcheela tay mahnja bahtahn
Literally not sure...i had the impression it meant, "go eat your own dick!"
Practical
Usage
My dad, who NEVER uttered a curse word in English (either profanity or obscenity), used to mutter this phrase under his breath when someone had done something egregiously horrid, something which seemed to justify a curse. I'm not even sure it was Italian. Since Dad didn't speak Italian, then if it WERE originally an Italian swear-phrase, he likely picked it up in his youth in New England, and almost certainly butchered the pronunciation horribly. If anyone has an idea re the original curse, or its meaning, I'm all ears.
