What is the appropriate use of the phrase - "Git 'er done."?

I've heard this randomly the last couple months, and now I hear it by some real unintelligible rednecky sounding guy saying it on some car dealership radio commercial. But I can't quite determine in what context I should try and incorporate this phrase into my daily vocabulary.

It seems it is interchangeable with the phrase, "Please complete the given task". But I'm not sure.

Any help?

It's the catchphrase of comedian Larry the Cable Guy. It's meaningless, somewhat like Tim Allen's grunting. It's just to express enthusiasm.

I know what the appropriate response to anyone that says it is. A 2x4 to the back of the head.

From what I can tell, it translates roughly into a subconscious plea for assisted suicide, with the noble end goal of bettering the gene pool.

This phrase ranks up there with "Here's your sign" or "You might be a redneck if...". They're just positively grating. Real nails-on-the-chalkboard kind of annoyances. In my opinion, these phrases can only be used if you're wearing overalls, carrying a pig under your arm and have a piece of straw hanging out of your slack mouth. Otherwise, speak properly...please.

You have mocked the words of the prophet.

When it is used around here, it generally takes the place of "BOO YAA!" like you hear on ESPN.

I have never heard a single person utter this phrase, whether in my real life or in any of my entertainment choices. Am I too sheltered?

Sheltered? No.

The appropriate use is something along the lines of

Person 1: Git 'er done!
Person 2: (shotgun blast to Person 1's face)

It's best as an answer to this question:

What's the dumbest catchphrase after "...., you might be a redneck."

That's theoretical. I think the OP was talking about practical applications of the phrase.

It's funny how you all are making fun of these guys yet

"you might be a redneck if..." = rich muthafucka
"Here's your sign!" = rich muthafucka
"get 'er done" = rich muthafucka
"BOOM, Headshot!" = still in mammas basement
