Spanglish gone wrong

Remember the stupid Laredo video that started the “Besito pa’ todos mis Haters”? There were even blog posts about its growth in popularity.

This is what happens when one of your friends has a little too much to drink during the holidays and tries to be cute and use the idiotic phrase as her Facebook status:

The photos and names were blurred out to protect the innocent, the not so innocent and my own skin when she discovers I posted her status update - hahaha!

For my monolingual English readers, un besito pa’ todas mis haters means “a little kiss for all my ‘haters’.” Obviously, you can read the English word she mistakenly used.

    Aww, the perils of the poison firewater! 😉

  2. I wish I could say this is an isolated incident… but the linguistic brutality performed on both English and Spanish makes my head hurt. On the other hand, it’s an endless source of amusement.
