what does anything mean, really?

my impression has always been that it's halfway between a sleazy lounge singer/the fonz version of 'eyyyy!' and an 'item get!'

but I could be wrong! I think it's happened once before.

You know, from what I've heard from Henry Wrinkler, in the Italian dub, they keep the "Ey~!" and that's it. Ha ha ha! Man.

Oh and that doesn't sound too farfetched at all.

I'm sure this is totally wrong, but I always looked at it like one of those old NES "get"s like "LEAD BUBBLE GET!!" or something.

This quote from Outpost Nine might sort of explain it, though it doesn't really show the purpose:

quote:
Anyone who's been in Japan in the last few years already knows what "Gets!" is, but for those of you who haven't, it's basically a cheesy grin, both hands displaying the universal gun finger positions, and saying "Gets!" ...I don't get it either, but it was wildly popular a while back. Oh, and the "pioneer" of this move, a comedian named "Dandy", looks like the ungodly result if Michael Jackson and Carrot Top were to somehow mate. ...Yes, it is every bit as horrible as you imagine.

Thank you.

I'd still like to hear Iggy's opinion on this.

The voracious man-eater and heroin peddler. I'd just like to see what he thinks of this catchphrase, given his significant knowledge concerning Japanese culture.

Well, that's to be expected, but he could still give it one of his trademark broken-English gayguy three snappers. You know, they're like something one of the Queer Eye guys says, but with less coherence and more of a preference for chest hair. Or something.
