Cerote is a Central American word for turd. When Central Americans arrive in the U.S. they called Mexicans cerotes, and Mexicans only laugh because they didn't know the meaning of the word turd cerote. Since Mexicans are mostly indians and their vocabulary is very limited in Spanish. The same thing happens with Mexicans born in the U.S., their English is very limited and they have an accent.
Since Mexicans are ignorant and they speak a mess up Spanish, they say 'guey', 'polecia' 'aguelo' when the words are 'buey', 'policia', 'abuelo'.
