Word used in Mexican Spanish to describe a state of being "pocho." Pocho is a derogatory term that Mexicans use for American hispanics who can't speak Spanish correctly. Also used to describe someone who says he's bilingual, but in reality can't function in either language.....like Tex-Mex.
HR Manager: Didn't that last applicant say he was bilingual on his resume ?
Supervisor: Yeah, puro pochismo. He can't write a business letter to our clients in Mexico, and he can't spell in English either. Where do these guys get off bragging how bilingual they are ?
