How would you say "bite my shiny metal ass" [sic] in Mexican Spanish?

Best answer: Does it have to have Mexican slang in it? In plain ol' Spanish, the literal translation would be "muerde mi culo metalico y brilloso". (I actually had to think about how to say that in a grammatically correct way! I considered using the reflexive "muerdeme", but the rest of the line just didn't fall into place that way.)

"brillante culo metalico" also works...but as a native spanish-speaker, trust me that it's "muerde mi", and not "morder". that is in the wrong tense.

The latinoamerican dub translates it as 'Muerde mi brillante trasero metálico.'

Futurama en español.

Response by poster: Mexican slang definitely, rather than correct castellano. Bender Bending Rodriguez did not get much of an education.

Best answer: «¡Díselo a mi brillante culo metálico!»

Best answer: The Spanish dub of Futurama has "Díselo a mi brillante culo metálico," which I believe translates literally to "Tell it to my shiny metal ass." I don't recall what dialect of Spanish is in the dub, though.

At least in Mexico the dub is Mexican,it has a lot of regional jokes.

I live in Spain and i never heard this expression used, or a similar one. If you want to use something more local-flavored, the spanish sure have creative curses.

The one Birdherder and Jeanne cite is indeed exactly what Mexican Bender says on 'FOOtoorama' (which always sounds pretty Japanese to me, but that's Spanish for ya.)

I can hear it in my head right now. :)
