Ojo: The "Cholo Word Of The Day" is simply for fun. This is not an academic exercise, therefore I do not spend much time checking for espelling or grammatical errors. Most of the words are not only used by "cholos," but by many people in S. Texas - and their usage can vary. c/s

Cholo Word Of The Day - La Jura

I'm thinking I need a better format for my words of the day, because it's always so random. Any suggestions would be appreciated:

Word: La Jura
Meaning According to DT (me): The fuzz, the cops, pigs, maranos, nation's finest.

Used In A Sentence:
"Chente, wachate cuando vayas a la store, si andas drinking, porque te pesca la jura."

"Ya se Flavio. La jura metio mi dad a el bote last week."

Translation according to DT:
"Vincent, watch out when you go to the store, if you're drinking, because the cops will catch you."

"I know Flaves. The cops stuck my dad in the penitentiary last week."

Bonus Word: El Bote
Translation According To DT: The can. (jail)

I love that use of the word "bote"! I heard a commercial on spanish radio the other day that started out, "Tienes alguien en el bote, necesita ayuda para salir?", the ad then went on to talk about a lawyer that would help you get out of jail...that was crazy!

Good work with your blog, I like your cholo words of the day.
