I came across a couple of really funny streetwise Spanish phrases recently that I love! You’ll find them below and I’m sure you’ll want to make them a part of your Spanish vocabulary. They’ll also give you a little insight into Latin-style wit!
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 likes a whole lot of cream on her tacos
It’s similar to saying: She enjoys a lot of mustard with her hot-dog in English. Doesn’t it make the point brilliantly?
Our next funny phrase is one I learned from my Argentinian friend Martina. It’s used for those times when people are in a bit of a rage.You can use it when you see someone in a state of anger. It’s such a great phrase to describe this and it really tickled my ribs:
Un ataque de caspa – A dandruff attack
