This is an expression that you can use when you are in a deep trouble and want to make fun of yourself or the situation you are in.
it can also be "Komatta Pii" I believe

The numbers from one to ten are pronounced as follows:

One - ichi
two - ni
three - san

five - go
six - roku
seven - shichi
eight - hachi
nine - kyu
ten - ju
Above ten the numbers are pronounced differently: for example the number 11 in Japanese is translated as "10 plus 1"

eleven - ju ichi
twelve - ju ni
thirteen - ju san
fourteen - ju shi
fifteen - ju go
sixteen - ju roku
seventeen - ju shichi
eighteen - ju hachi
nineteen - ju kyu


Above the number twenty the numbers are again pronounced in a slightly different manner. For example the number 20 in Japanese translates as "2 - 10's" and continuing on therefore, the number 21 would be considered as "2 - 10's plus 1"

twenty - ni ju
twenty-one - ni juichi
twenty-two - ni juni

hopefully I didn't repeat any words, I also tried to keep similar words together XP
