Rurales Ride Alone & Firewalking With Pendejo

April 27, 2020
   Here's a series I would watch.

Daily Whip Out: "The Lone Rurale"

   Meanwhile, along the border, another character I love, is making his way north.

Daily Whip Out Sequence:
"Firewalking With Pendejo, Part I"

Daily Whip Out Sequence:
"Firewalking With Pendejo, Part II"

   So, if you haven't guessed by now, "Pendejo" is a Mexican slang term that means several things: it's a definite putdown and can either mean, "coward" or "asshole." I like it for both meanings, and it's a character that I think has a bunch of potential.

   Then there's this new word:

Ignoranus (n): A person who's both stupid and an asshole.

   Got this from Dan The Man Harshberger, who forwarded it from a Washington Post contest for new words. 
   The Washington Post's Style Invitational also asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition.

   Here's one more that Dan rather liked:

-Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.


Daily Flashback Whip Out:
"Rurales On The Move"

"We seem to be having a plague of pendejos."
—Old Rurale Saying


  1. in my 50 years of being called a pendejo, it meant only ONE thing, and it wasn’t “coward”.

  2. i use the term “cobarde” for “coward”. “Pendejo” is a horse of a different color!
