Vocabulary Corner

One of the weird things about Spanish is that you can construct convoluted, non-existent verbs out of a word just by slapping an A on the beginning and making it reflexive.  So in the hands of this electronics store downtown, the word for screen - pantalla - turns into a word meaning "Hey, get yourself a big-ass flat-screen TV, muthafucka - you deserve it!"

Now if you'll excuse us, it's time to ¡acervézanos!

Actually, apantallar is a real verb in Spanish, it means to amaze, the fact that it's referring to a screen is a pretty good pun.
