    No can do

    -- This is great, you can join my guild! [talking about a videogame]
    -- No can do, sweetcakes.

    I'm not familiar with the "no can do" part. Is it common? AE/BE?

    FRC

    It's a common phrase meaning simply "I can't do it, no way I can do it".

    Military? It's a lot more than just the military. It's just as much an American expression as it is Canadian. Don't know about the UK.
