Did you really think that we would NOT have a post dedicated to our fav. swear words?! Here we go! Let’s goo.
La madre que te parió
This saying is funny because it literally means the mother that gave birth to you. Sooo, yeah lol. This is used interchangeably with “son of a bitch” or motherf*ck**. However, this saying is also used amongst friends positively to express surprise or when someone does something unexpectantly.
Tonto del culo
Whew chile. Be careful using this one. It translates to idiot of the ass. It’s vulgar and a little harsher than the other ones mentioned here. Either you use this with your bestie or maybe not at all. Use this one with caution.
This is a fav of ours. Such a simple yet effective swear word. Joder means fuck, shit or damn. You will most likely hear it dragged out like so: Jodeeerrrr.
This one is a bit vulgar but oh well lol. It means what a big pussy. In other words, pussasss (ha). In Spain, it’s not as vulgar. If you get really good, you can even say ¡Coño!, the shortened versión to express excitement. Let’s just say if you were from Spain, your child or your grandparents might use this phrase and it would be aight.
Me Cago en la leche
I think we all know that leche is milk but we haven’t quite figured out what me cago is right? Do you really wanna know? Well, it means to shit. Basically to shit in milk. This phrase is used a lot to express frustration. Sounds terrible in English but in Spain, it’s commonly used.
Hijo de puta
Meaning: Son of a b*tch
The word ‘hijo’ means son, and ‘puta’ means b*itch. It’s obviously a common swear word we use in English, and like our language, it can be used to refer to someone or to express one’s frustration. Similar to ‘Mierda’.
SH*T. It means, shit!
Meaning: Idiot or dumbass
A common Spanish phrase to use is ‘no seas gilipollas’ which means “don’t be a dumbass” or “don’t be an idiot.”
You could also use it loosely to mean ‘jerk’, ‘brat’, etc.
Here’s an example: ¡Vaya gilipollas que es este tipo! – This guy is such a jerk!
Those are our favs! Which are your favs?
