It is a phrase used in the cartoon "Rio" which has no meaning. People in Minnesota like to say this. It is considered be meaningless and a ordinary word.
loads of similar euphemisms to avoid using profanity / swear words are used in the vernacular but one has to know the culture and the context. I wonder why respondents to this original post OP above keep saying this does not mean anything when it does ? Every phrase, idiom, metaphor , expletive does have a meaning in the right context particularly in pragmalinguistics.

it is a sort of a euphemism for a swear word /cussing .........if you do not wish to be rude and use bad language
