Apologies for being such a visionary but I’m beyond this time.

  • Sopa = soup

    Sope = sort of a thick corn tortilla with toppings

    Pastel = cake

    Torta = sandwich in Mexico

    Torta = cake in some Spanish speaking countries and in other languages

    If you are going to be a smart-*** be properly armed.

    Not sure. I know soup is sopa, but when I tried sandwich on a translator it just came out sandwich. Go figure.

    The most common last name in China is Wang and it can mean a ruler or king. In some parts that is a comedy word. You can go on all day though, why is a dog called a dog? But not everywhere, it's a chen in France.
