    Stoke’s Spanish Phrasebook

    Seven Spanish sayings that’ll tug at your tortilla

    Language apps are great, but they don’t always teach you the most practical phrases. Speak español like a sultry señorita with our curious Spanish expressions, which are definitely more useful than “Elefante como una manzana” (thanks for that, DuoLingo).

     

    1. Me suda la polla

    Literal translation: It makes my dick sweat.

    Meaning: I don’t care/don’t give a fuck.

    Example:

    Dude: “I don’t have a condom.”

    You: “Me suda la polla.”

     

    1. Me cago en la leche

    Literal translation: I shit on/in the milk.

    Meaning: Goddamnit.

    With varieties: me cago en ti (on/in you), en tu madre (on/in your mum), en dios (on/in God), en todo (on/in everything), or en la leche de tu madre.

    Example:

    Boss: “You’re fired.”

    You: “Me cago en tu madre!”

     

    1. Relaja la raja

    Literal translation: Relax your pussy.

    Meaning: Chill out.

    Example:

    mum@gmail.com: “You haven’t written back to my emails in over a fortnight, are you alive?”

    hostelbunk69er@hotmail.com: “Relaja la raja, Mum.”  

     

    1. Me toca los huevos  

    Literal translation: It touches my balls.

    Meaning: I’m not bothered.

    Example:

    Waiter: “I’m sorry ma’am, we don’t have Coke, only Pepsi. Is that okay?”

    Tourist who speaks excellent Spanish: “Me toca los huevos.”

     

    1. La madre que te parió

    Literal translation: The mother who bore you.

    Meaning: Insult similar to “you bastard”. Can be used in a comradely way, when a friend has done something that surprises you.

    Example:

    Friend: “Hey, I hooked up with your cousin.”

    You: “La madre que te parió! She’s so hot.”
