G A M E Creative Pictures and -azo Suffixes
Time for a bit of creative fun, following up on a great idea that Lazarus had and a fantastic picture that he posted. This game even allows you to make up your very own Spanish words! Not to mention find some outrageous pictures to go with them
The game is based on the suffix -azo which is, as Lazarus put it:
a very productive suffix for hits, strikes and sudden collisions or energetic encounters.
The challenge is to form or find a word ending with the -azo suffix, put it into a sentence (Spanish with Eng trans) and find a picture to match - the more outrageous the better!
I'll copy the one from Lazarus post here to get us started:
Le dio un jamonazo al vehículo.
I whacked the car with a ham! (my translation - Lazarus feel free to improve it )
Había una vez un gatazo
conocido por ser bien malazo
y un día robando, el diablazo
terminó recibiendo un ladrillazo
Por el golpe sacó un chichonazo
Y ahora es gentil y buenazo
No me comporté bien y mi mujer me dio un sartenazo.
(I didn't behave and my wife hit me with a frying pan)
How about this:
Cállate o te voy a darte una lechugazo.
Keep quiet or I'll hit you with a lettuce (leaf).
¿Quién no ha visto este video del zapatazo a Bush?
I think everybody must have seen the video of the guy who threw a shoe at Bush
Lo nuestro fue amor a primera vista. Un flechazo.
Ours was love at first sight. We were smitten
Cabezazo - Head butt
El jugador recibió un gran cabezazo. The player received a massive head butt.
Pedazos -- pieces
Mi corazón se quebró en mil pedazos.
(My heart broken in a thousand pieces)
Kiss me or I'll give you a punch!
¡Bésame o te daré un puñetazo!
I admit this wasn't my original line, but it was too good not to share it with you!
Jim Davis' original English line was "Kiss me or I'll punch your lights out!"
