Porter J. Ross
English translation:this has been asked before ...
Explanation:
It's the American "version" of the Southern Italian "'sto cazz'". It isn't in the least bit polite and I imagine an equivalent expression to be "f*ck you" or something of that nature.

agree  Richard Benham: For Porter's benefit: "cazzo" is "penis".//You seem addicted to asterisks! ;-)

  -> Thanks, R:-)! In fact, I note the site incorrectly translates c*zzo as testicles. Must write and correct them! And not everyone is as broadminded as us, dear heart!

neutral  Ian Burley: The correct translation depends a lot on the context

  -> That's why I said "something of that nature"
