In the last few days, I’ve heard two very funny Spanish phrases I really like! You’ll discover both of them here and you’ll have no difficulty in making them a part of your regular Spanish. Furthermore, they’ll give you a good taste of witticism Hispanic-style!
The first one is very clever as well as being witty. This is a Mexican way of describing snobby folk who look down on others. I really love this one, it describes such people in a typical Latin manner:
Le echa mucha crema en sus tacos – She puts a whole lot of cream on her tacos
It’s a bit like saying: She likes a lot of ketchup on her hamburger in English. Hits the nail on the head superbly, yes?
Our next funny phrase is one I learned from my Argentinian friend Martina. You know when someone is really angry and you can tell by the look on their face that they’re losing their temper? It’s such a great phrase to describe this and it really tickled my ribs:
¡Miguel tiene un ataque de caspa! – Miguel has lost it – Lit: Miguel is having a dandruff attack!
These two witty and simple Spanish phrases are sure to raise a laugh whenever you use them and they’ll win you respect and admiration throughout the Spanish-speaking world without a doubt!
