Putos

A funny thing happened to me on the way to Jacquie's Knit-togetha last night...

The subway platform at Bloor was packed. I found an empty bench, put down my bag and began to knit. Across from me, a Filipino woman had also put down her bag, but instead of knitting, she had a bag full of Filipino yummies. She was selling them to support the children in the Philippines. I asked what they were and she told me they were Putos. I couldn't help but giggle and tell her that Putos in Spanish is a bad word. She told me to call them filipino muffins instead and that they would go very well with coffee. Ok. And as we chatted waiting for the train, every now and then she would say something in her native tongue. I guess she musta bin saying "Putos, get your putos here!"...the funny part? Well, in spanish puto(s) can mean a variety things, ie fag, queer, f*ck (the adjective). "Fags/queers! Get your effen fags and queers here!" I just couldn’t resist -- I bought two helpings of Putos and got on the effen train!
