Today the last vulgar/swear word for a while (I don’t want this blog to become “the swear-blog”): carajo.

Personally, I use it once in a while, but most of my friends don’t like that fact. It’s actually worse than joder, although it more or less means the same; “damn” or “f*ck”. It’s a bit hard to explain so read the following examples carefully:


¡Vámonos ya, carajo!
For heaven’s sake, come on!

¡Vete al carajo!
Fuck off!

¡Carajo con el niño!
That bloody kid!

¿Que le pida yo disculpas? ¡un carajo!
Me apologize to him? like hell I will!

No entiendo ni un carajo.
I don’t understand a damn thing.

*Note: So far I know the word carajo is also used outside Spain. At least, I’ve heard it several times in a Mexican movie.

Apple's market share is bigger than BMW's or Mercedes's or Porsche's in the automotive market. What's wrong with being BMW or Mercedes?

Most people have no concept of how an automatic transmission works, yet they know how to drive a car. You don't have to study physics to understand the laws of motion to drive a car. You don't have to understand any of this stuff to use Macintosh.

Literally meant the lookout basket in the top mast of a Spanish galeon ship. Sailors would get very sea sick when assigned to this post, so when they would think of becoming mutinous, the captain would send them up to the carajo as punishment.

What is the meaning of this work" Carajo"??
Is it Spanish language??


Googled "Carajo" March 19, 2016 at 4:26 am

As an English speaker with an absentee Peruvian father, I really appreciate you explaining why sometimes I say"Aye, carajo!!!" instead of "Oh, F***!" when things go wrong. I haven't lived with my dad in 28 years (I'm 33) so thanks for this blog. I appreciate the hard work.
