It looks like the sentence isn't formed correctly but I think Jorge is eating appetizers with Arturo. Not an insult at all. grin

mmm, no, i'm pretty sure it was meant as something else and not literally. i thought maybe it was a colloquialism from a certain country, and if so, who the statement is directed toward and in what way (i.e., positive or negative) - doublebeatloaf, JUL 7, 2010
