Spanglish is not a substitute for Spanish

To those who don’t speak Spanish (or at least don’t understand my broken attempt at it), here are a few translations:

  • Estoy El Calambre: “I am El Calambre.”
  • Estas jugando con unas munecas: “You are playing with dolls.”

What sort of horrible things have you either said or witnessed in Spanglish lately?

(For those paying close attention, El Calambre was a nod to Rhode Montijo and his amazing comic, Pablo’s Inferno. Check out his latest work at the site linked through his name.)
