Look Alike Game

Even if you have no idea who this famous Argentine is (Carlos Bianchi, manager of Boca Jr fútbol team) you cannot ignore the fact that he looks exactly like the brilliant Larry David.

Che, Boludo!

Boludo/a is one of those wonderful words in Argentine Spanish that just does not have an English translation to give the meaning justice. The word signifies many different things, sometimes possessing a derogatory connotation, other times used in an affectionate banter among friends (for more decent definitions, check out urbandictionary. The word can be used as a noun, verb, adjective or all of the above to mean:

1. Dumbass: "That boluda joined the Sarah Palin is my hero group on facebook"
2. Dude: "Boludo, what did you do last night?"
3. Fuckin' around (not in a sexual manner): I spent all day boludeando (deriving from the verb, boludear) on wikipedia.
4. Douchebag: What a boludo, has a big tattoo that says "AWSOME" across his forearm
Best to watch this commercial entitled "Qué Bolu (abbreviation)" that perfectly embodies the meaning of the word boludo.
