Si a mí se me fue la "l" en «él»....
What does the following phrase mean:
Pila de bakeneria pa k sematan los demogogos?
It was a facebook post by a dominican friend. It may refer to a song, but I'm not sure what he's trying to say.
It refers to the verbosity of the politicians.
Demagogo is same as Demagogue in English. Dermagogo is usually employed as a reference to politician and/or anyone who's suspected of being one or to take advantage of some cause politically; in Spanish-speaking countries.
Bakanería usually refers to the trashiness of something, here it refers to verbosity.
Your friend was complaining.
"pa qué se matan los demagogos?"
Means: why do they bother at all?
Pila de bakanería: mountain of bullshit.
Please, translate me this into Enligsh.
"Echando de caña"
Well, you'll have to tell us all where did you got that from, and what nationality was the one who said so.
Regardless, I think is "echando caña", not "echando de caña".
In Panama, "echar caña" can mean "to beat someone up".
"Llamaron al profe(*) porque Juanca y Hernández se echaban caña en el patio"
"The teacher was called because Juanca and Hernández were beating each other up"
Or to have sex/get laid.
"A Laurita es muy fácil echarle caña".
"It's so easy to get laid with Laurita".
*Short for "profesor", usually a teacher in a Secondary School.
Can anyone tell me what "Pa Q Te Mate Palomon" or just "Pa Q te mate" means?
It's just Spanish "webspeak", like "how r u?" and that stuff.
Pa---> mispronunciation of "para"
q-----> Abbreviation of "que", also seen as "k"
So: "Para que te mate palomón".
From what I can gather Palomón must be a nickname. Or referring to something. Dunno.
"Para que te mate palomón"---->"So that palomón can kill you"
or alternetively they missed out a comma (,)---->"Para que te mate, palomón"
"So that he/she kills you, presumptuous bastard" or "so you die of jealousy, presumptuous bastard"
Note that in some countries palomón means "presumptuous bastard" or anything among those lines.
Glad you think that way!!!
I try :P
I also have a question:
What do the words "muñequita," "bomboncita" mean?
If it helps any, Pitbull said these in the song "Ven bailar" by J. Lo.
Muñequita y Bomboncita (or "bomboncito") are the diminutive of "Muñeca" and "Bombón".
Muñeca literally is "doll", but it can mean "honey, darling".
Bombón literally is "chocolate", but it can mean "stunner".
I just came across another few lyrics that don't make sense:
Do these words have any meaning or are they just there to sound good?
Tarará, (tarará), tara, (tarará), and ra-ta-ta-tá.
I heard it in the song Gordita by Shakira y Residente (Calle 13) link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWDCDJeVq0o
Tarará, (tarará), tara, (tarará).
this in the song En La Línea by Mala Rodríguez link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OLI8OJdG9o

I was wondering if somebody could help me understand these lines from the song "En La Línea" by Mala Rodríguez. I really don't know what the words in bold mean; I think they are slang. So I will give some context. Here is a link to all the lyrics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...Q_lTZl9Qs&NR=1.
