I really struggled to find any instance of this phrase online; it’s difficult to search. Does it have a comma (i.e. “it’s ___, is what it is!”)? How would you write this verbal colloquialism down?
(The space is meant to indicate a word. For instance, the sentence might be “it’s art is what it is!”, where the meaning of the sentence is basically ‘it’s art’ with the rest added for emphasis. I’m having trouble remembering any specific instances of it, but here’s a made-up dialogue that illustrates its use: 1: “Blow up the ship? That’s crazy.” 2: “It’s suicide is what it is!”)
