    I was watching a Mexican show last night and a guy, that the show portrayed as gay, called another guy "papucho" and then the guy ran off. Does that word have meaning??

    It could mean "Hey baby!" or "Hottie."

    Yep, that's it.
    "Papucho" belongs to the same family than "papito, papaíto, papacito, papazote, papi, pa, papachongo, etc." all of them from "papá" and, like "papá", they use to have the sense of a familiar/loving/flirting form of adress refering to a dad, a boyfriend or a man that girls like a lot.

    What happens when you're not calling someone "Papucho" (directly to them), but you're talking about another person's papucho... Like when there are two girls talking, and one tells the other, "Look, here comes your "papucho"? (the guy she has a crush on). What would I say in that case? There comes your "hottie"? There comes your darling? Or just, there comes your guy?

    Thank you, "papuchos" and "mamacitas..."
