How to Speak Like a Mexican: Handcuffs

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a “How to Speak Like a Mexican” post. I’ve missed them!

In Spanish, the word for “handcuffs” is the same as the word for “wives”.

Coincidence? I’ll let you figure that one out for yourselves.

  1. On a kindof related note, when I tried to bring handcuffs as a joke gift to Cancun for a bachelorette party, they stopped me at the airport and made me pull them out. I guess they got concerned when they saw them go through the x-ray machine. But when they saw that they were fuzzy and (I think) leapord-print, they were less concerned. I, on the other hand, was highly embarrassed. I’m not sure what the elderly couple behind me in line was thinking.

  2. I’d love to see more “speak like a Mexican” posts. I always enjoy learning words and phrases that you just get anywhere except from speaking with people.
