After living 1.5 year in Chile:

  • I cannot say penne pasta[1] with a straight face.
  • I still giggle when people talk about curvas[2].
  • The same goes for “tu po[3].
  • I won’t be able to reply “po to” in Polish[4].

[1] Obviously “dick” in Chilean.

[2] Sounds exactly like “bitch” in Polish. This is extra hilarious when people say then fell on a curva. By accident.

[3] Sounds like “ass” in Polish.

[4] Means “ass” but in Chilean.

And yes, it’s Chilean. Not Spanish. They don’t speak Spanish here.
