Yo me doy el gusto de ser más churro que el protagonista de la películar.
Yo me doy el gusto de ser más churro que el protagonista de la película.
Seen on a billboard advertising beer outside a cinema.
What does it mean? Especially "churro"
What is that "superfluous" (Yo) doing at the beginning of the sentence?
So to elaborate on Carlos-F's definition, the phrase would very roughly mean, "I love that I'm more attractive than the star of the movie." It's sort of weird. "Me doy el gusto" would usually mean more like, "I allow myself the pleasure of being more attractive etc..." but that's also a bit odd in English. I assume it was supposed to be película, not películar.
Churro/rra (pop.) Hermoso (referido a personas jóvenes y atrayentes), lindo/a.
Regarding the "superfluous" "Yo", I think that just because it is not necessary, doesn't make it superfluous.
I disagree. "superfluous" means 'unnecessary'/"serves no purpose" In your sentence is serves to emphasize the disjunction of your opinion from that of others. It is not simply a question of "Would this sentence make sense without the use of 'yo'? but, rather, would it mean the same thing?
I entirely agree with Heidita (and others) in their condemnation of the use of personal pronouns (when they serve no useful function [especially those made explicit by the form of the verb]) but we all know that they (pronouns) can be used for rhetorical effect.
Churro has already been dealt with. I only know "churro" as the yummy fritter, so no further comment there.
Regarding the "superfluous" "Yo", I think that just because it is not necessary, doesn't make it superfluous. When used in this manner, it adds emphasis to the fact that "I am doing this". To my view, it increases the sense of ownership over an action or a responsibility.
This is also a churro, ¡delicioso!
How funny, I was guessing it was a spelling mistake for chulo, churro is quite the opposite in Spain.
Esto es un churro, this is a garbage, nonsense....
