The interview on slang really caught our attention when the expert stated that
Spanish has had virtually no impact on American slang. He seems to have missed the whole enchilada. First we thought that maybe he is not really an expert but has the cojones to hold himself as one. Second, we considered that he may be a real bad hombre but then we dropped that thought when we realized that if he were, he would be in the hoosegow with the banditos, and he is clearly not. Our only explanation is that he may be plumb loco, But then again he may be just plain wrong and will have the machismo to say so. Hasta la vista, baby.
