Before I got my hands on Che Boludo I carried my Spanish-English dictionary and verb conjugation book everywhere I went in Argentina. Now all I need is Che Boluda! First, it is way more practical and useful. Second, it is frickin' hilarious and I WANT to study it all the time, therefore I actually learn a thing or two. If you really want to connect with the locals, start with a purchase of Che Boludo! The best money I've spent since I've been in Argentina!
A good present for your overseas friends if you're from Argentina, they'll have a laugh and perhaps understand a few things too.
This book is absolutely fantastic. I am planning on spending a few months in Argentina next year and wanted to learn some lingo to impress my family over there. My parents, who are both Argentinians, were in stitches laughing when I started repeating lines from the book. They said it was absolutely spot on and that the phrases are still used everyday. The hand actions are great too!
