The secret war name of the Indian tribe that fucked up George Armstrong Custer at the "Last Stand".

As in: "The Tanaka Indians put an end to that Custer bullshit."

Since then, the phrase has often been shortened to tanaka, which in English means: Take Names And Kick Ass.

Typically used to describe the act of cutting through the bullshit and getting down to brass tacks.
"Those guys were so lazy, I had to tanaka the shit out of them just to get the project done."

Although Japanese in origin, Tanaka may signify a lonely polish woman who backs out of doing fun things with close friends at the last minute for the sole purpose of feeling wanted. Seen most frequently in children who were raised with no siblings, this behavior is a survival mechanism which enables the individual to exist without any close friends.
Without exception, a male Tanaka has a small penis.
