: "What's that got to do with ________" (the end of the sentence varies) means "don't change the subject. Let's get back to what I was talking about."

Known UK variants include "the price of coffee", "the price of cocoa", "the price of tea in China", "the price of beans" and "the price of eggs"... well, known to me, at least.
