English translation: shut up, or I will f*** your mother!

Albanian term or phrase: shuj se ta kaj nënën
An aggressive man puts his hand on the nose of the son of the witness and says:

"Shuj se ta kaj nënën"

Could "shuj" have something to do with shujtoj = feed? I think I've seen "eat this" as an English or US threat, maybe it works in Albanian, too.

A google hit suggests "I will make your mother cry" for the rest of the phrase.

neutral  Bali D.: Yours is close, but "shut it or I'll f*** you up" is what the threat is intended to be, even though we, albanians, throw the word mother in that one.

  -> That's why I provided an alternative translation after the literal one.
