What? Is this some kind of newfangled pig-latin?
If you mean we're up the creek without a paddle, okay, we can understand that sort of concept.

LOL, no. It comes from the Bible, Daniel chapter 5. I think this is also where we get the term, the handwriting on the wall, as a hand wrote on the wall, mene mene tekel upharsin, you have been weighed in the balances and found wanting. That night the Babylonian Empire fell, and the King was killed.
