Nice little example of the reverse of the h/j swap that you get in some southern dialects (eg “Tengo jambre”), as spotted in Hartza’s comment here:
–Dígalo más rodado.
–Dígalo a lo cortés.
–Dígamelo a lo bobo.
–I want to fuck you, girl.
–Say it less directly. [Either rodado is being used here in a sense new to me, or Señor Anon may have meant rodeado, or … help!]
–I want to ride you.
–Say it politely.
–I want to enjoy you.
–Say it me like a fool.
–I want to deserve you.
(I think this swap is actually due to a desire to avoid writing the word joder. It reminds me of the joke–probably banned now–about two small children in the bath. Says one, “Can I duck you?” To which the other replies, “Only if you say it right.”)
