    Default payback's a beach

    Does anybody know what this phrase means in English and what the translation into Spanish is? I guess it's a more polite way of saying "payback's a *****", but I don't understand in what context to use it.
    Thanks

    Andrea,

    This is a very grotesque English slang and I have never heard a Spanish equivalent.

    The context is when someone does something to hurt you, you will in turn hurt them (the payback) and it will hurt worse for them (the *****).

    I would translate it as: La venganza no es buena.
