This is a spanking, Latino style. Whether its a spanking of a child, adult or an apposing sports team, if you receive a pela, you're basically getting your ass whooped.
Pelas come in degrees of severity:
1. A small pela usually comes in the form of a hand slap.
2. A medium pela usually involves a leather belt or the power chord of any appliance closest to the person giving the pela.
3. Una gran pela (big pela) usually begins with something flying towards you like a chancleta, shoe, plate, silverware, or remote control, followed by the pelas described in #2 and #1. In addition, calling for help will only make it worse.
