    Cielosur got a reaction from Elimination in Specific Spanish slang   
    My favorite Mexican slang word is "chingar".  It is so versatile. 
    It can be a noun:  Pasame la chingadera esa.  Hand me that damn thing. 
    It can be a verb:  Como chingas.  You bother me.
    It can be a destination:  Vete a la chingada.  Go to hell.
    It can mean a really good beating:  Me dieron una chinga. Te dieron una chinga.
    It can mean getting screwed over by someone:  Me chingaron.  Te chingaron.
    And of course there is the ultimate "chinga tu madre" which involves someone's mother. 

    If James Lipton ever asks me what is my favorite cuss word, I will have no qualms answering that is hands down "chingar".
