Spanish

Question:  What does “¿Que significa Boludo?” mean.  I get that it is Spanish because of the upside down question mark at the beginning, but I don’t speak Spanish.  I am guessing this is asking something along the lines of “what is the significance of Boludo?”  But what is Boludo?  Is that the big question?  What is Boludo?  I feel like I should run outside and scream that to the heavens.  “Tell me!  Tell me what Boludo is!”  Oh, by the way, the reason I am asking this is because I found a piece of paper by one of the computers this morning and all that was written on it was “¿Que significia Boludo” and being the person who thinks of weird things I kind of started assuming that the note was left for me.  Luckily I work at a library, and if there is one thing that I am pretty certain of it is that libraries have books.  And guess what?  Dictionaries are books.  Also, there are Spanish/English dictionaries.  To the reference section!

Boy, if this is how my day is going to start at 8:40 I am assuming this is going to be a good Wednesday . . . and if not I’ve always got Alcohol Wednesday to look forward to after work.

  1. ok it smore than a year later and hopefully you found the answer by now but a “boludo” is a commonly used term in Argentina—literally it means a guy with big balls..but it is commonly used as a term between friends similar to “dude” Depending on the inflection it can also be an insulting term like “jackass”
