I was surprised to see an apparent ad this weekend that was apparently for personal injury attorneys (avogado de accidentes). It was stuck to the base of a lamp post. The number given was 1-8xx-PENDEJO. (Not going to post the real number.) Joke?

It is a Spanish word that, at least where I grew up, was a crude (almost vulgar) way to call someone an idiot.

Yep, love it! Just last week I had to explain to someone what the term C*LERO/A meant!



San Antonio, TX (in the old city)


"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

Yes, on a vulgar side.
A little bit more, than an idiot, more like a flaming a$shole idiot....

I would guess maybe half of people that has heard unfiltered verbal jabs between friends of hispanic heritage has heard it. I wouldn't recommend saying it to someone you haven't heard say it first.

Grew up in a lower-middle class Mexican neighborhood -- I heard it every day growing up.

I hear it regularly from me dear sweet wife. It is sometimes used with affection, sometimes not (if she is swinging a frying pan at my head, it is the latter)

Pretty funny. Could be thought of it as "fsckin' idiot."

Saw it on the back of a ratty sailboat once.

....there is a LatAm group at one.....one day uses it all day.....he probably thinks that 'others' there not in his group don't know the meaning but there are time when I hear him 'cursing' heavily and he thinks no one knows what he is saying.....and this is is a formal office setting......

First time I recall hearing it was from Vasquez, regarding Lt. Gorman, "Aliens."

I could pretty much pick up the meaning from the context...

Chong learns the meaning from Cheech

That's probably where I learned it, too. Never lived near a Spanish speaking population when I was growing up.

Love C&C though.

I am so hoping you don’t mean that they are buried in your basement.

You don't buy them in a basement... the smell is terrible! You bury them under the yard, about 6' of dirt and some lime. The trees love the extra fertilizer.

Me too... it was very contextually clear even if it wasn't defined.

You joke, but someone did just that not too long ago in Lennox, a nearby community (that is not the greatest area, in case that wasn't yet clear).

Sadly, not the first time it's happened, and won't be the last.

I have often wondered why my buddies' garages have such thick slabs.

Doesn't always work as planned. I reference a certain episode of Breaking Bad as an example.

My freshman roommate was from Puerto Rico. She taught my dog commands in Spanish and she taught me a few bad words. This is the only word I still remember. Well, that and "siéntate".
