Why does Manny call Glottis and some other friends of his "Mano" at times? In Spanish, it just means 'hand' (weird nickname to give a friend if you ask me!)

I have never heard
Manny call anyone Mano.
there is Mano a mano
which means man to man
but Glottis is not a man
and Manny is a male skeleton.
I mean Glottis is his
right hand sort of guy,
or maybe it means something else
or maybe you thought Manny said it,
another more experienced GF gamer
will have to answer your question

i think it just means 'friend''

And what does Carnal mean?

09-28-2002, 10:38 AM
I think 'carnal' means 'fleshie'.

I think it just means "buddy' or "pal" Maybe "friend".

Mano meaning friend? Then why would he say "Hijole mano"? What would that mean? "Hijole to my friend"? WHat the heck does Hijole mean? heh heh heh!

I have a theory. After looking it up on several online dictionaries and getting nowhere, I think the "mano" you're referring to could be an abbreviated form of hermano, meaning brother, rather than having something to do with "hand". Just a guess, but it makes sense.

any and all submissions
welcomed Sanspoof.

and yes Tall Guy and Metallus
are right. Manny says:
Hijole Mano!
he is saying
"Sh!t! Man(brother)*dude*
check out that...
kind of like
'we don't need no sticking badges man!'

I think it means My friend, he's Spanish, you know.

I think Hijole mean something like "ahw man"
for exampel "ahw man, Im gonna miss the poisening"

The great Welshwoman is back!!!
Did anyone miss me??
...I guess not

Hm..."My friend"? Nope, I doubt it. 'Cause then, what does Hijole Mano mean? "My ****ty friend?" NYahahhaaha...

Just browsing through this thread, does anyone have any idea. I meen, how many completely different translations can there be. How can one word meen hand, brother, and man in one. It might make conversations a bit difficult. For example,
Hey mano!
What, Im not your brother!
No I meen MANO!
I aint your hand either, psyco.

Heuston, we have a colloquiallism.

10-24-2002, 11:59 PM
You can fire a gun, you can fire an employee, you can fire a memo...and yet we have no problem keeping the different meanings straight.

10-25-2002, 04:03 AM
Yes, it's simple as long as you know what a gun, an employee, and a memo are. If you couldn't identify the noun you'd be up in the air just like we are here.

Yes, very colloquiallismish, yeah? Um, has anyone got a dictionary

10-25-2002, 08:00 PM
If I recall correctly, colloquialism is casual speech in written form. Kind of like quoting yourself verbatim (word for word). ****, can someone give a simpler explanation?
