A keychain to insult Spaniards

Palabra Gracioca is a keychain that emits records of rude words. Unfortunately, they are in spanish. From Foolish Gadgets:
[It] features push-button phrases like “Hijo de Puta” (son of a b*tch), ”Maricon” (a**hole), “Come Mierde” (eat sh*t) and “Cabron” (man who lets woman cheat on him).

    And pay attention to the distinction between maricon and mariposa.

  3. Teresa Nielsen Hayden / Moderator says:

    Also, I love the name of that thing.

    Aaah, rebirth of the zapper? Is the Spanish speaking market 25 years behind the random noise making market?

  5. Drew Blood says:

    Spaniards may be insulted but I think my Peruvian and Latino friends will find this hilarious!

  6. mralistair says:

    yeah maricon means ‘gay’ or worse. The spanish also use the word mariquita, which also means ladybird..

  7. Anonymous says:

    Sorry, but somebody has to say it. Maricón means EXACTLY faggot. Also, it’s “come mierda”, not “come mierde”.

  8. Takuan says:

    I believe “maricon” is indeed one of the three proscribed words. Perhaps a correction here might save a life one day. Remember;when cursing in other than your native tongue, be damned sure you understand what is coming out of your mouth.
