    Mmm...
    It's an obscenity, a reference to the phallus. "Camote" is the word for sweet potatoes or yams, so the reference is to the presumed phallic shape of the sweet potato.

    But is it 1 word, or 2: tu camote?

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that. It's 2: tu camote. It's probably an vulgar answer in somebody's conversation.

    Hmmm thanks, saw it on a t-shirt (Tecate) so a play on words perhaps, had to ask!
