I don’t know why but Colombian Spanish has some funny sounding words. Even more than some varieties of Spanish. So I thought I would share some of them with you. So what are the 10 of the funniest Colombian Spanish words?
10 Pecueca (pekweka)- this is foot odour-this word even sounds funny
9 Conchudo-is something who takes advantage of someone, an opportunist
8 Cuchi-Barbie- this word is a combination of the word “cucho” meaning old, and “barbie” doll. A cuchi-barbie is not exactly a cougar, but a beautiful looking middle aged women, sort of like a MILF without the notion of having children, or being on the hunt for men.
7 Tirar– this is a common Spanish word, but careful about your use of it in Colombian. It means to bonk there, so unlike in Spain where yo might see it on a door, meaning to pull, a Colombian in Spain might feel like they are being prompted to have sex. Therefore, a bonk in Colombia is called a “tirada”.
6 Amanacer– this means to wake up, or sleep in Colombia, but for other Spanish speakers it has them a little bit perplexed. If you don’t know the word, you would think “Como ameneció (usted)?- how did you see the dawn/sunrise? To which the only plausible answer would be “Pues, en la cama- well I saw it in bed” when really you should be saying that you slept well.
5 Tufo– this is alcoholic breath:- Tienes tufo! You have grog breath!
4 Cucos– these are knickers, or women’s underwear. It has a funny sound, even becoming catchy with other Spanish speakers, when they are speaking with Colombians, all for a good joke. You might see the store on Chapinero “Todo cucos”
3 Gasolinera– a woman interested in rich men for their money, literally translates as gasoline women.
2 Chucha– this is underarm or body odour. It is a good work to drop into a conversation, particularly if you want to get someone to keep their distance
1 Tuqui- tuqui lulu– this word is the winner for sounding funny. It means something like bad luck, and is sometimes accompanied by a cutting action to the neck
