“Zap!” went Super Mario’s atomic ray gun as he vaporized another deadly foe.

    "Zap" is a written representation of the sound the weapon makes. "Went" here is informal and means something like "said".
    "Zap!" went the gun. "Mooooooo!" went the cow. "Cluck cluck!" went the chicken.
    I go, "That is a cow.", then he goes "That's not a cow - it's a pig!"
