A verbal expression which is used as a warning if someone annoys you and he/she/it needs to be slapped in order to shut up. "tapas" is accompanied with raising your right hand.
The term is originated from Gran Canaria, where spanish restaurant promoters very intrusively ask you if you want something to eat "you want some tapas?".
You respond by saying "im gonna give you some tapas!" ─ meaning: you are going to slap him if he won't shut up.
'The promoter just won't leave Jack alone.
I think Jack's going to dish out some tapas.'
