Commonly mistaken to mean "homie," "buddy," or "gang coworker," this word is actually used as a password gateway into the telepathic community grid only known by Mexicans, Latinos, and anyone else who looks remotely like George Lopez. This telepathy internet has been accessed in secret by our people for a millennium, since the time of the Incas, Aztecs, and Bantu. Today we use this tool as a method of strictly important communication, usually to discuss common or new methods of pile-driving chika
's, petty theft, or crossing borders. Anyone caught speaking this word intending to access our thought network will be located and drowned in beans, which we always have handy.
