What does culeta mean? I know it's some kind of Mexican slang.
As far as I know, I've never heard it.
Wouldn't it be "culAta"??
In that case it would be the part of a gun you grab with your closed hand.
Never heard about "culeta",
Byet2, I thought the same.
It might be cooleta or cooleya. Not sure....I think it's a derogatory thing, thats why I'm asking.
Could it be "colega"? where did you hear/read it?
What is colega?
I heard someone call someone else that.
Colega means "mate" or "buddy".
Look in our dictionary for the answer.
Maybe "culero"? = lazy (also may have a vulgar meaning, I'm not sure)
Mmm Andrea, it looks like your "friends" teasing you a lot.
Well I guess we need more context in order to help you, baby.
You may be confusing the word with "culete", "coleta" or "culata"
It does make sense if "culeta" is pronounced "in English", and yes, the meaning is reeeally vulgar, however common between buddies.
despite the confussion... in Venezuela they call "cola" to the boot. Am not sure this helps. :blush:
If the person who was called that was a girl, i BET they were talking about her lowest back. hem hem.
There is an old TV show, still running, called ¿Qué Pasa USA? which was designed to help Cuban immigrants learn English as well as the culture. In one episode, the teenage boy (who has came to the U.S. as a child and speaks better English than Spanish) tries to explain to his abuela (whose English is liimited) why it is so important that he get into this high school club, which will make him one of the "cool" kids, because it is "cool".
Abuela doesn't understand, and in his attempt to explain, he uses the word (in his mind) coolito (really cool). Of course, she hears culito (look up culo if you don't near) which, naturally, shocks her. (Actual usage is more vulgar than what the WR Dictionary says).
Maybe you heard "culito" in the perjorative sense.
My friends often say culeya or pendejo (not culeta, i know what that is), and it's vulgar. Sounds like coo-lay-ah. Thanks for your help.
Well, it's vulgar, I guess is a "variation" of culera, here where I live some people may use culeya(o) for concealing the real word and avoiding to sound rude.
As usual, the tone or the circumstances will determine the grade of vulgarity or pejorative intention.
So basically, it's calling someone a snake (a nasty person)?
Yes, you can say that. Another meaning could be "mean" or "cheap".
"Lo trató muy culero" = "He was very mean with him".
"Este reloj está muy culero" = "This watch is very cheap".
The biggest difficulty for understanding Mexican insults or this kind of words is that we give them lots of different uses.
I think you mean "culito" which means small, cute butt.
Culito/a could also be slang for calling someone an ass.
