    There's also "pistolero," which would be translated as "Gunman" or "bandit" which is what my Spanish professor suggested as an alternate to caballero.

    Well, if it's simple enough for you...

    Meanwhile, why weren't the mostly-young men who chased down whales called whale-boys? How about "tree-boys" instead of lumberjacks? Most were young; most weren't named Jack. How about "perp-boys" instead of cops?

    Caballero (pronounced "ca-ba-yero") to "cowboys".

    "Simples"--right, doof?

    If not, don' really matter. I'll take the word of a walking-'stache from Texas (that's te-has to you, doof) over yourn any ol' time.

    Learn to read. They're simply adding "doofaloofa" as a synonym.

    Sharing screen names = conflict. Whoda thunk it? Oh I forgot, this is BS.

    Wish I knew who actually made that pic. It's hilarious.

    Building a character in Everquest (so this is going back a fair few years) was thinking of a name. Remembered a fairly popular spell being called "Spirit of the wolf" Though called "Sow" for short... So thought I'd name my character Sowolf... However the game wouldn't accept it and thus I changed a w to two v's hence Sovvolf. Used the name ever since.

    Sometimes you have to stand up for yourself and demand--in no uncertain terms--the right to refer to yourself as "Sow".

    Honestly, happy that the game rejected it. Sovvolf rolls off the tongue better (pronounced Sov-vulf) than Sowolf and sounds a little more unique. Plus getting called Sov for short fits much better than being called Sow or Wolf.

    That or, well after probably 10 years of using it, I've just become used to it.
