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 - Que No?

This might be a phrase of the day, rather than a word. I really like this one because you can use it at work, at home, in church, or even while you're hanging out with your camaradas listening to Los Bukis.

"Severino, you want to go the movies tambien, Que No?" "Pues claro Smiley, vamos maƱana, y nos quedamos a ver two movies, que no."

Pseudo translation (kinda like the subtitles in the movies): Severino, you want to go to the movies too, don't ya?

"Well, of course Smiley (Ismael), let's go tomorrrow, and we'll stay to watch two movies, right."

You'll notice the "que no" can mean a variety of things. And even though it's literally a question - it can be used in any way shape or form.
