In the past we've seen columns like Ask Sandy and Ask a Mexican. It is 2008, baby, it's time to Ask a Pendejo! Me. I'll help get you started.
A pendejo is considered a Spanish friendly, almost-cuss word for something like an "bumbling idiot," which generally means being the third fisherman on a two-man bay boat. It's a fishing tournament technical thang with many applications in real life.
Why on Earth call yourself that?
I don't own my own boat yet, and plus falling off other people's boats right at the wrong moment is so much more fun, especially during an official fishing tournament.
OK, what's biting on SPI right now?
Dang if I know, other than a few fleas and no-see-ums the dog drug into the house. They won't let me on their boats anymore unless I pay big money now.
Did the pendejo go to the Polar Bear Dip today?
Wish I had, at least they wouldn't have to fish me out of the ocean like usual. It was very cold today, and I know for a fact that a 5-millimeter wetsuit wouldn't be allowed, especially with my Mexican wrestling mask. May I mention my zoot suit says "Qué tipa pendeja!" on the back.
What does that mean?
No huyas, pendejo!
