Day 3: Pedo

“Pedo” it’s a sustantive, and it literally means fart, but even if its not a verb like cagar or chingar, it has many meanings depending on the context you use it.

When you are drunk, you say “estoy pedo”, and when you are in a party where theres a lot of alcohol, you call it “una peda” (another usual word for it is also una “borrachera”)

“Pedo” can also be used when someones lies. If you say “eres un pedero” (words like piñero, and mentiroso can also be used here) It means that person is a liar, and if you say “es puro pedo” you are saying something is a lie.

When you are whith close friends, you can use ¿que pedo? In the same way you use “whats up”, to say hi to people and/or ask what is happening there.

Also when you have a problem,  you can say, “tengo un pedo” or  instead “no hay  pedo” when there is no trouble.

I hope you have learned something new, about the spanish that real mexican talk on their everyday life.

Day 2: Chingar

Chingar is probably the most used verb on Mexican slang.  Chingar literally means “to annoy” most all the time, and you can use phrases like “no estes chingando” or “como chingas” to say someone is very annoying, but it can also be used to say something broke, or its broken (Esto se chingo/eso esta chingado)  or when you are going to screw someone up in a fistfight. “te voy a chingar” (-Te voy a verguear/madrear/putear- work in the exact same way, with other slang words)

As a substantive, you can modify it and make it into “chingon”, that literally means badass, as well as chingada or chingado, wich means someone has been screwed over.

This has some historical context, because some people refer to Mexicans as “hijos de la chingada” wich literally means, sons of the chingada. This is because the women native to latin America were raped by the Spanish conquerors, so you can say, they were “chingadas” by them.

When you have a lot of things, or when you want to accentuate something, you say “un chingo” or un “chingazo”
Ex. Tengo un chingazo de deudas/ i have lots of debt.
Hace un chingo de calor/Its extremely hot (the weather).

And yes, chingar can also means intercourse, but its mostly used when a man is being a jerk and showing off with their friends about a woman he had fun with, instead of being something romantic.

Chingar is a violent verb most of the time. When you say things like “chinga tu madre” or “chingate”, you are literally throwing Mexican F-bombs. Also, it has a few not so harmful uses, like when you are going to drink or eat a lot in a single sitting, you can say, “me voy a chingar veinte cervezas” “ayer me chingue veinte tacos” (I’m going to drink 20 beers/yesterday I ate 20 tacos)

Anyway, that was the verb chingar, and even if you think is disrespectful or not nice most of the time, its very commonly used and useful to know if you really want to get the most out of your interactions with Mexican people.

I hope you have learned something new, about the spanish that real mexican talk on their everyday life.

Day 1: Cagar

The word cagar, it’s one of the most important words on Mexican slang. While it literally means “the act of taking a shit”,  it has an array of meanings depending on how its used.

You can use cagar to express  your hate or dislike about  something, or when something makes you angry. I hated onion as a kid. So taking that as an example, you can say “me caga la cebolla”. Or right now, wehere I live, we are having extremely hot weather, so you can say something like “me caga el calor”  to express you are not enjoying it a lot.

Also, you can use cagar, conjugated as  “estas cagado a” to express someone looks very similar to other person.  For example, my best friend nickname on highschool was Chabelo, because people said he looked like the host of a children tv’s show here in Mexico.  So you can say: “Mi amigo esta cagado a Chabelo” to say they look a lot alike. We also use this same phrase “esta cagado” to express something was really funny.

Cagar, on infinitive, can also be used exactly as the word “regañar”, wich means to scold someone about something they did wrong. One day, I went to a neighbour city for more than 24 hours, and I didn’t told anyone from my family. Of course they were worried and angry, so I knew they were going to scold me when I arrived. , in Spanish, I would say something like :  “Me cagaron cuando regrese a casa”

Another of the many uses of cagar, its when you screw up something, like when you are playing a game, and make a bad play, you’ll say, “la cague” (I screwed up), or if someone else does it, you can say something like, “la cagaste”, or “la cagas”

Finally, you can also use cagar to denote fear of something, when you say “cagarse de miedo”, like when you saw an horror movie. An example may be:  Cuando de niño, vi la pelicula del exorcista, me cague de miedo.
