This is a mashup of the phrases “better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick” (better than nothing) and “kick in the pants” (message or gesture that acts as motivation for the recipient). Kicking and poking are confused here. Or maybe the speaker was saying just do something to get motivated? A big thanks to Eric for sending this one in!
