This is a great thread.
Don't take yourself too seriously.
Keep it light, and it's fun.

The large, comfy chair roped to a tree is killer.

Whatever works is what matters...

I assume that "ToyPedo " would mean "Torpedo Toy"

but in spanish slang means: "I am Drunk"

...Hahahaha!!! or in Argentina it'd mean "ToyFart" -

Sweet thread, keep it up!

good one!

That looks like a "diablito", which is a connection that bypass the meter, and then you have free energy!

Amigos, I took this picture in Pochutla, Oaxaca last week just after paying 2 pesos at the PEMEX to use the bathroom. I cracked up and immediately remembered this thread. Awesome.

Is the translation something like: Being low class feels cool?

You're very very close. "Being 'ghetto' is cool" It's something something that someone who is comfortable poking fun at himself or his bike would say. Goes good with an old, beat up bike, as in the photo example.

In an inverse sense, Naco can also be used to describe someone who is trying to look or act like someone they're not, someone trying to be "cool" or someone who has a lot of money.
