My similar quote would be "Utah, get me out"

That happens a lot with translation from Chinese/Asian.

For example a "I give you a life gamble" would probably make most westerners think of taking a gamble that's going to change their lives and probably for the better, like a risky investment perhaps

But it actually means risking your life physically. Westerners would probably say "I give you a Death challenge"

Whoever decided that September, October, November, and December shouldn't be the seventh, eighth, ninth, and tenth months should be stabbed.
