Made popular by the HBO Series "The Sopranos", stugots is from "(qu)esto cozzo" in Italian, meaning "this cock" or "this dick". Often used in reference to someone being an asshole.

The real word is "CAZZO". And the real slang word should be "shtugats"
rather than "stugots".

Bullshit.

It's a derivation from questo cazzo (literally, this dick), shortened
it becomes stu cazz or stu cazzo (or even u cazz). In NJ (East Coast
in general) Italian slang (with various changes for regional
pronunciation, etc.) it became, stugots.

The phrase is typically used to express defiance ('no fucking way') or
incredulity ('bullshit') or nothingness (' I got dick') but could also
be used with comical undertones in Italy, and is considered vulgar in
most social situations. In the US it has lost most of its association
with impropriety through common usage.

New Jersey 3rd-generation "Italian" is less accurate than Montreal
1st-generation Italian.

I stand by what I wrote.

The term is derived from "kishte kaz" (my rendition of the Neapolitan
("Napolitopoli", as AJ once stated) slang, not the standard Italian "questo
cazzo"). Thus, SHTUGATS.

Although most people believe that a cazzo is a "dick" and palle are "balls",
cazzo has come to mean the entire genital area.

And as for you - SHTUGATS! (These genitals)

""STUGOTS" means cock. And balls

However the sopranos have enjoyed credit for making up a word that was. very much used in 1974, in GODFATHER II. In. The scene of Vito talking to landlord for the old lady
being evicted for having a dog. Next day he gives him his money back
And re ruces her rent. The day before he says stugots to Michael twice.

It's one of those words that has a coupla meanings depending on how it's used.
It can also mean "nothing" as in, it's nothing, or I have nothing.
Sometimes, it's usage (as in the case of Tony's boat name), it leaves you to determine which is intended.
Sarcasm either way though.

It does not translate literally all that well. The closest I can think of is the Spanish indication of machisimo. On the boat, it would be like saying with an "in-your-face" attitude, that I'm more of a real man/tough guy than you.

Translation is an iffy thing. Ya cnat jus go woid fo wiod, ya know?
