Get the mug
Get a cerote mug for your buddy James.
Proper definition is a Turd. People from El Salvador (smallest country in Central America) are known for using the word "cerote" freely amongst one another the way a black person would use the "n" word amongst his homies. It's a word that Salvadorians can use but when another race or nationality uses it towards Salvadorians, ur gettin' yo ass wooped. Cerote can also be used as a deregatory word for people from El Salvador because they use it alot; the same outcome would be if a non-black person would use the "n" word
Que hondas cerote, como estas vos?
Wassup homie, how you doing?

Widespread use in Guatemala. Commonly used as an insult. Also popular as an (albeit obscene) term of endearment, akin to "motherfucker".

It's a turd, just that.
In latinamerican countries it's used sometimes as a derogatory insult, sometimes just for fun.
Juan de la Costa is wrong, they call everyone cerote, not only mexicans.

Aztec warrior is wrong, nobody would try to get respect imitating Mexicans, funniest thing I ever heard.
