BARRIO DICTIONARY

May 21, 2010

Looking for witty conversation? How about showing off your down-and-dirty liberal side? Or perhaps you need to tell the cleaning lady NOT to starch your underwear—that herpes rash is killing you.  Now you, too, can speak Barrio…with the Screenwriter Consortium Barrio Dictionary. 

Rosetta Stone’s got nothin’ on us.

Arrepentido (are-rep-ent-eedo) Denial to the tenth power.

El arrepentido wanted me to speak English. We didn’t understand each other but it made him happy.

 

Brindis (brean-dees) Precursor to a rough night.

How ‘bout another brindis, Officer?

 

Caliente  (call-yen-teh) Powerful state of mind.

I’m so caliente, my butt swallowed my thong.

 

Churro (chure-oh) Long, fried & tasty.

Your churro looks hot & delicious. Can I have a taste?

  

Corazon (core-ah-zone) The core of goodness.

That is one ugly motherfvcker. At least he’s got corazon.

 

Dinero (dean/err/oh) Elusive Latino paperwork

Pepe got this machine that prints his own dinero. Except George Washington kinda’ looks like Pancho Villa.

 

Fregado (freg-odd-oh) The morning after.

When I woke up and saw her with no makeup and a wedding ring on my finger, I knew I was fregado.

 

Guera (ooh-err-ah) Popular look in Arizona.

It’s gonna take more than highlights to make you look like a guera, mija.

 

Hijo de puta (ee-ho/de/poo-tuh) Those who make the rest of us feel good about ourselves.

It could be worse; you could be stupid and an hijo de puta. 

 

Joder (hoad/err)  Better when you do it.

I prefer to joder rather than be jodido.

 

Padre Nuestro (pod-ray/new-es-trowe) What we say when we screw up, big time.

Will three Padre Nuestros be enough to get that cop not to pull me over?
