Eggs! That has to be the word!

Eggs are also used in a number of other Latin American Spanish slang words and expressions, particularly in Chile where ahuevonado is used to describe someone stupid, the verb huevear means “to mess around” and the phrase “agarrar para el hueveo” means to tease someone. Other variants are decidedly more offensive in polite company, such as huevón, meaning “dude” or “idiot”, a term often used amongst close friends as a lighthearted insult. In Mexico me da hueva, literally meaning “give me egg”, is a common turn of phrase and is used to mean “I don’t want to” or “the very thought is making me tired”.

If this talk of eggs has gotten you a bit confused, then feel free to say “¿Y que huevada?” This is another egg derivative and means “What the hell is going on?!”

A verb meaning "to mess around." Is that "werwu?"
