One thought on “PendejoVirus

  1. Norteño says:

    In Spanish the word Pendejo is generally an insult, with the force of the English “asshole” or “jerk.” It comes from a Latin root meaning “pubic hair.” https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/pendejo#Etymology_2
    Pendejo was apparently first used in 16th-century Spain to refer informally to a young man or boy who was trying to act older than he was – putting on airs so to speak. By the 17th century, pendejo came to mean “coward,” a mocking or taboo reference.
    By the early 1900s, pendejo had drifted from “coward” to insulting someone dumb or stupid (tonto) in the Americas.
