The World’s Most Expensive ‘Coño’

BY Led Black (@Led_Black)

Washington Heights’ history teacher, Carlos Garcia, will now think twice before uttering the infamous c-word (‘coño’) ever again. Carlos ‘Coño’ Garcia, who has been a teacher for 17 years, was suspended for several months from his teaching duties at the High School of International Business and Finance popularly known as G-Dubs for using the c-bomb repeatedly in front of his students.

The original fine for his alleged ‘coño’ laced tirade was a whopping $15,000 (you know that Mr. Garcia was saying ‘coño’ in his head) but was reduced to $1,000. For those that don’t know, ‘coño’ is the equivalent of the f-word in English without the carnal implications. In essence, it is a more forceful version of “damn it”.

‘Coño’ is actually quite a versatile word. In can be used in anger, such as in Mr. Garcia’s case, to quiet an unruly classroom but it can also be employed in a complimentary manner as a response to a pretty woman one sees on the street, ‘coño’ with an emphasis on the last O. Another use is to question something that a person might find dubious, as in pero que ‘coño’.

    Coño = Vagina
    It makes as much sense, though just as effective and appropriate, as shit(!), fuck(!), damn it, cojones, minchia (sicilian, calabrese & salentino) or cazzo (italian). A verb and disparate nouns for the desired expression. If we put meaning behind some of these expletives, perhaps we wouldn’t allow them to roll off our tongues so easily. Surely Mr. Garcia has considered taking this tact.
