estar pedoIf you have kept track of our Swearing in Spanish and Odd Spanish Expression series’ you might have noticed that the Spanish have a habbit of using bowel movements and flatuelence to express both happiness and anger. Estar pedo llevar (to be fart) and llevar pedo (to carry a fart) both actually have nothing to do with farting. Yes, “pedo” does directly translate into the world “fart” but in these phrases the word refers to being drunk or intoxicated.
