Facundo Cabral - Cuidado con los boludos (English translation)

Spanish

Cuidado con los boludos

El universo siempre está dispuesto a complacernos, por eso estamos rodeados de buenas noticias. Cada mañana es una buena noticia, cada hombre justo es una buena noticia, cada niño que nace es una buena noticia. Porque cada niño que nace significa que dios todavía cree en nosotros, si no no seguiría mandando gente al mundo. Es más, cada cantor es una buena noticia, porque cada cantor es un soldado menos.
 
Mi abuela decía -Habría que acabar con los uniformes que le dan autoridad a cualquiera, porque ¿Qué es un general desnudo? – Tenía derecho a hablar de esto porque ella estuvo casada con un Coronel. Que eso si había que reconocerlo era un hombre muy valiente. Solamente le tenía miedo a los boludos.
 
Un día le pregunte ¿Por qué? y me dijo – Porque son muchos, ¡no hay forma de cubrir semejante frente! Por temprano que te levantes, a donde vayas, ¡ya está lleno de boludos! y son peligrosos, porque al ser mayoría eligen hasta el presidente… Y los hay de toda categoría, por ejemplo:
 
El boludo informático, que es un boludo computado.
 
El boludo burócrata, que es oficialmente boludo.
El boludo optimista, que cree que no es boludo.
El boludo pesimista, que cree que él es el único boludo.
El boludo esférico, porque es boludo por todos lados.
El boludo fosforescente, porque hasta de noche se ve que por allá viene un boludo.
El boludo de referencia, ¿Dónde está Alberto? allá al lado del boludo de traje marrón.
El boludo de sangre azul, que es hijo y nieto de boludos.
Y el más peligroso de todos, el boludo demagogo, que cree que el pueblo entero es boludo!

Careful with the idiots

The universe is always willing to please us, that's why
we are surrounded with good news. Every morning is
good news, every just man is good news, every
child that is born is good news. Because every child that
is born means that God still believes in us, if not, He wouldn't
keep sending more people into the world. What's more, every singer is good news, because every singer is one less soldier.
 
My grandmother used to say - They should get rid of uniforms that give authority to anybody, because what is a naked General? - She had a right to talk about this because she was married to a Colonel. You had to admit that he was
a very noble man. He was only afraid of the idiots.
 
One day I asked him why, and he told me - Because they
are many, there's no way to cover such a front! 1 No matter how early you rise, where you go, it is already full of idiots, and they're dangerous because being the majority they even elect the president...And they are in every category,
for example:
 
The idiot computer expert, who is a calculated idiot.
 
The idiot bureaucrat, who is officially an idiot.
The idiot optimist, who believes that he's not an idiot.
The idiot pessimist, who believes that he is the only idiot.
The spherical idiot, because he's an idiot all the way around.
The phosphorescent idiot, because even at night one can see that over there comes an idiot.
The idiot of reference: Where is Alberto? Over there next to the idiot in the brown suit.
The blueblood idiot, who is the son and grandson of idiots.
And the most dangerous of all, the demagogue idiot, who thinks that the entire town is idiotic.
 
  • 1. Front, such as a battlefront

Hahaha! I quite like this, both as a former idiot computer expert and a lifelong idiot pessimist.

I found this rather amusing myself :-)

Oh, yes! Only bilinguals can translate like this. Pleasing to the eye whichever side you look. Thank you!
