  • Aw, that’s cute! It is actually spelled Hara Kiri, and it refers to a specific kind of seppuku, or ritual suicide in Japan. Hara kiri itself means, literally, “stomach cutting”.

    The links below explain the ritual further, but generally speaking it was done because it was more honorable to commit suicide than to live with some shame or another on your family/etc.

    People say “go commit hara kiri” because you’ve done something embarrassing/shameful and it would be better if you offed yourself than continue living. 😉 It’s used in jest, of course.
