As seen in a Mexican newspaper...

So here I sat perusing the internet while waiting for a huge sign to print out, and I found this. Take it for what you will

- - - - -

HELP WANTED
Steady Work • High Pay • Great Danger
Mexican Ministry of Internal Security

The American president Donald J. Trump, who you should not call “estupido pendejo” even though he is, has recently begun a project to build a huge wall between our beautiful country and the United States. The construction firms selected to construct the wall were chosen for their corruption and willingness to give money to President Trump rather than their ability to perform the work. This has led to the terrible situation of the wall starting to collapse into Mexico.

President Obrador finds it unacceptable that Mr. Trump’s wall could collapse and crush a Mexican citizen to death, and has ordered the military to take steps to keep this from happening.

The Minister of Internal Security is now taking applications for people with the skill and bravery to install shoring along Mr. Trump’s wall to keep it from falling completely into Mexico.

Successful candidates will use flatbed tractor-trailer rigs, well-drilling equipment, concrete trucks, forklifts, cranes, scissor lifts and SMAW (stick) welding equipment to attach steel girders at a 45-degree angle between a well-placed footing and a bracket welded to the wall.

The length of this contract is Indefinite. The minister believes that because the wall is being built by corrupt contractors we will never be done propping it up.

Qualifications include one year of experience in any of the skills needed to construct this project. Applicants with multiple skills will be viewed favorably. All applicants must have been citizens of Mexico before Trump was elected.

Due to the multiple and extreme dangers presented by this work, which include high temperatures, water shortages, venomous and aggressive animals, President Trump’s supporters, and the everpresent risk of the wall collapsing on the workforce, the rate of pay is 1000 pesos per hour.

Interested persons should apply with resume at their local Army Recruiting office.

2. For safety reasons, they should not be shoring it up.

If it is leaning onto the Mexican side, they should tear it down. Maybe that would give "estupido pendejo" a stroke.

11. "estupido pendejo" would mean ''stupid stupid'' am I right? ''estupido cabron'' perhaps?

12. Estupido pendejo is backwards in Spanish,

Last edited Fri Jan 31, 2020, 03:52 PM - Edit history (1)

which puts the noun first, as in "pendejo estupido."

Pendejo can be used as "stupid" but I would not recommend using it that way because it is more equivalent to the word "a-hole" in English. In Spanish, it is a vulgar pejorative word that comes from the word for pubic hair.

Cabron estupido has many meanings, depending on context and the country where it is used. It literally translates into "big goat" -- a large, mean-looking one. Among the most common slang meanings is "bastard."

BTW, although estupido sounds like Spanglish, it is a real Spanish word.
