Attributed originally to a traveling Scandinavian in the UK, this incredibly versatile phrase can be literally translated as "fuck it." This phrase seems to simply state the obvious but actually implies helplessness in a similar vain to 'it is what it is'. Can be abbreviated to 'if it gives' in standard conversation. Phrase abstracted from this immortal quote; "If it gives it gives, if it doesn't it doesn't, it's just the same."
