More Information

"Show me your fist" is an idiomatic expression used to challenge someone to take action in a manner consistent with something he or she has just said. Substituting "torso" for "fist" by mispronouncing ro' as ro would produce a phrase that would be interpreted only literally. Ordering a Klingon to reveal his or her torso is probably not a good idea.
