Non-Mexicans Try To Guess The Meaning Of Mexican Slang
Lara: A name for a fuckboy. Like, you’re being such a culero right now and I don’t have to deal with it.
Farrah: A name for someone who’s always running late, like jeez hurry up once in a while.
Actual definition: Asshole.
Lara: A…squad? People you hang out with? THIS IS MY CABRÓN AND I WILL UPLOAD PICTURES OF US ON INSTAGRAM.
Casey: Sexy man.
Farrah: OH! I think I know this one! Someone who’s acting like a douchecanoe??
Actual definition: Bastard.
Lara: It’s a term that means no more, like when someone texts you “LOL” for the fourth time, you say “NO MAMES.”
Casey: No thank you, ma’am.
Farrah: Something you say to someone who sends you too many memes.
Actual definition: “no way” or “stop messing around!”
Lara: I think this is saying that something sucks. For example, “wow driving on the 101 at 6 p.m. is estoy crudo.”
Casey: I am cruddy.
Farrah: A phrase reserved for terrible hangovers. “I am feeling SUPER INCREDIBLY hungover.”
Actual definition: Hungover
Lara: This must be a term that refers to the moon. “LOOK AT THAT MOON!” “Marty, stop talking about my butt.” “NO REALLY, THE MOON.”
Farrah: Let’s go party!
Actual definition: “Ah shit!”
Lara: A term meaning, “YEAH WE KNOW.” Like when your friend tells you for the sixth time how drunk he was last weekend you can respond by saying, “ANDO BIEN PEDO.”
Casey: Something about “good children.”
Farrah: I’m having a good hair day.
Actual definition: “I’m very drunk.”
Lara: A delicious food that I really want to try. I’m imagining cheese.
Casey: What you say before “rancheros.”
Farrah: Something you say when you’re demanding breakfast. “GIVE ME THAT EGG.”
Actual definition: “Hell yea!”
Lara: S my D. Hey guy who cut me off this morning in traffic, te crees muy muy!
Farrah: I’m sure this means “stop being very creepy right now.”
Actual definition: You think you’re all that.
Lara: Yelling at someone about water? Which, is valid, considering the drought. I would yell at my old roommate about this had I known…”YO AGUAS GIRL, GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE SHOWER.”
Casey: What you shout at someone who is as cool as water.
Farrah: Something you yell before doing a cannonball.
Actual definition: “Watch out!”
Lara: This has to be another word for “cool,” right? “Damn girl you are looking FRESA AF.”
Casey: Fresh or sassy.
Farrah: Something you call someone when they wore the same outfit as you…only better.
Actual definition: A snobbish person.
Lara: IDK, I feel like this is your fortune. This seems like some deep shit. Like I don’t know if I want to know what my ORALÉ IS OR NOT.
Casey: Rally, as in “Get off the couch — it’s time to oralé.”
Farrah: Something you hear your dentist say, like “open your mouth.” “ORALÉ.”
Actual definition: Right on, alright, OK, etc.
Lara: Are you serious??!?! Like when someone says they don’t like guacamole …”¿QUÉ ONDA?”
Casey: “What’s up your butt today?”
Farrah: “What the actual fuck.”
Actual definition: “What’s up?”
Lara: A very smart person; a “know-it-all” if you will. A real Hermione Granger.
Farrah: Something you call someone who eats too many chips.
Actual definition: Cool.
Lara: I have literally no idea but I’m gonna go with a cow. Don’t ask me why.
Casey: Someone who is slimy or sleazy.
Farrah: A stronger word for attractive…like VERY sexy.
