Lunfardo 101

It's of common belief that in Argentina the offical tongue spoken is Spanish. I hat to burst your bubble but it's hardly the case. We actually speak Lunfardo, our very own form of Ebonics. And ever since the late 19th century, the Real Academia de España has not had one night's worth of good sleep.

And you wondered why it was virtually impossible to decipher what Fangio was spewing all this time....

I will now teach you a random word and use it in a sentence.

Grasa (noun) - Thug, hoodlum, ruffian.

All those who call their home the southern parts of the Province of Buenos Aires, are a bunch of grasas.

Hurrah for Paquador!

Why don't you post one instead, bufarra?

You know for a fact that Humbird lusts over all things Argentine.

(Si solo supiera que conosco a alguien que se morfaba a Hernan cuando jugaba en la Lazio)

Hurrah for Paquador!

Chanta (noun)- A farce, a cheat, deceiving in nature.

A chanta tricked me into believing he played the electric guitar like a riot just because he shared a picture of a Fender claiming it was his.

Hurrah for Paquador!
