This phrase is code for marajuana. Teenagers in japan have named it after a kid from an ancient japanese folk-tale. Penn Chan would act as though he was high all the time. The kids saw it to be a fitting code name so the phrase is now commonly used in asia and has recently spread to the states.
Dude that Penn Chan was grade A.
