One Mexican Slang Word You Need to Know

The Spanish spoken in the streets of Mexico is a far cry from the Spanish you learn in school. It’s dirty, vulgar and loaded with colorful expressions. Today I’d like to tell you about my current favorite Mexican slang word, a word I find myself fitting in to every other sentence. That word is pinche.

Pinche is not a nice word. It is most similar to “damn” or “damned” or “f—ing”. Here’s how you might use it in a sentence:

Gabriel es un pinche idiota. (Gabriel is an f—ing idiot.)

Dame el pinche dinero o te mato. (Give me the damn money or I’ll kill you.)
