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 - Cuete

ok. so this isn't the official spelling of this word, but que importa. The official spelling, according to my muy muy Mexicana friend from San Anto is: cohete.

A "cohete" is a firework. A cuete is not.

Lady, you know who you are so thank you.

Word:
Cuete

Meaning According To DT:
gun, handgun, rifle, ak-47

Used in a sentence:
"Tira el cuete antes de que te pesque la chota."

"Bueno chief, pero dale gas. Esta ranfla ya nomas no."

Translation according to DT:
"Get rid of that firearm before the nation's finest apprehends you."

"Ok comrade, but please make haste. This vehicle isn't as polished as before."

Cuete can also mean drunk.
Ex: Juan Perez anda bien cuete y si no se wacha lo van a correr del trabajo.
