The phrase, which has its roots in Costa Rican soccer culture, may be translated as "Are you cool or are you a fan of the wrong team?". "Tuanis" means "cool" in Costa Rican Spanish, while "morado" and "manudo" refer to Costa Rica's major soccer teams. Fans of "los morados" would, therefore, use the phrase "¿Tuanis o manudo?", while fans of "los manudos" would use the phrase "¿Tuanis o morado?"
