    Hey guys. I'm a little confused over this. This woman is giving a list of the skills that she has and one of them is "Les pongo el papagayo a los viejos"

    What exactly does this mean? This is someone from Argentina saying it by the way. Thanks in advance :)

    I looked up papagayo and it came up in another forum:

    En Argentina también le decimos papagayo al artefacto, generalmente de vidrio o de metal enlozado, que usan los hombres para orinar, cuando están internados en una clínica, hospital o sanatorio y no pueden levantarse para ir al baño.

    Además del pájaro, claro...:D

    Sounds like she inserts catheters.

    I don't know too many catheters made from glass or metal! To me it's more like a bed pan.

    En México a este papagayo se le dice "pato".
