Being a cheto in Cordovan

We tell you all the expressions that Cordobeses use to name the people of high society. I read the note and laughter!

How we talk

In Cordoba, we love to laugh at people. Actually, we laughed at people and people. We like to put nicknames, have funny expressions. And above all, we   like to spend us   . One of the main reasons why we laugh with each other is for having money and showing it exaggerately. We laughed at   cordovan cheto   , which becomes re enlarged. Because, in general, we're enlarged. But imagine if, in addition to being enlarged by nature, you add a little purchasing power to a Cordovan. It's a thing of not believing. That's why we have a couple of expressions with which we take these situations with humor.

  1. Cordovan is not cheto, it's top.  

If there is a common way to tell Cordovan cheto is to tell him he's top. To the latest fashion, with all the novelties and super enlarged. This is a Cordovan who has high purchasing power and is on the order of the latest fashion.

  2. Cordovan is not superb, it is humiento.  

  “Che, humiento”   : this is what they say to you in Cordoba if they see that the smoke came to your head. Yes   you got on the pony,   in porteño. A humiento is an enlarged, superb guy who thinks he's a thousand. We chordobeses are fumes.

  3. Cordovan has no silver, tá forrau in twine.  

It's like that. If you have a lot of twine,   “tas forrau”   . This expression comes from being lined only that, with our tonada and our Cordoba mechanisms, it looks different. It's just that whenever a word ends with -ado, we feel more comfortable abbreviating it to -au. Lined,   forrau   ; roast,   asau   ; elongated,   elongrau   . Do you have the wave?

  4. Cordovan is not wealthy, it's signboard.  

Carteludo is the Cordovan that not only has silver, but also shows it with a neon sign. Buying the latest cars, the latest fashion. When a Cordovan is playing guitudo, he's cheto and   tá forrau   In twine, it's a billboard.
