Maybe I act like I am 12 years old sometimes, but hearing this phrase makes me giggle a bit. Go ahead and say it out loud to yourself (fahkt yo). The first time I heard it said I was a little taken back. I started to hear it a lot and thought these Czechs are little cussers. Then I learned it's a phrase equivalent to "Is that a fact?!" in English. Say it again fakt jo, fakt jo, fakt jo. Tee hee.

When I was a kid I used to make up words that sounded bad and tell my mom that it was my own language after she would yell at me.
