No Problemo by dinyctis No Problemo by dinyctis
I am normally rather mellow when it comes to stuff like this. You know, people saying "hola" and "buenas noches" are grammatically proper and used in the correct context.

However, there are some that just don't fly. Yes, I know that adding an "o" makes things sound Spanish (or so the general consensus tells me), and I can even appreciate it in a comedic context (sit-o on the chair-o next to the table-o). However, "no problemo" crosses the line.

As a Spanish speaker myself, that's the one that irks me the most, so a poster is in order. Spanish speakers will respect you more when you use their language properly, as opposed to destroying it in an effort to sound cool.

As far as the design goes (is there even a design here?), this is the last one of the kind that I produce. I've used the same style in a few others and I think it's run its course. Next time, I'll try something different.

PS: Natzee is spelled like that on purpose. I can't believe how many people have pointed out over the years that I misspelled the word "Nazi." :stab:

:XD: I don't think I've ever used that, though. But it's good to know.

That's odd, I always thought of it as just a silly way to say something, like how 'neighborino' wouldn't be someone actually trying to say the word in Italian. :shrug: Either way, this is cool.

I do wanna put 'Silent 'H', Holmes' on a bat though...:D

Never has grammar and pain-in-the-assery been more amusing than at this point. Truly you are a master.

xD Well thanks for telling me~

But I'd find it more funny than offensive if a non-native English speaker said 'No problemation' xDDD

Well, now I know. :D

lol, you said it.

"No Problemo" is like scratching nails on a chalk board, it's just infuriatingly disturbing to the ears of anyone who actually speaks the Spanish Language.

I cracked a little at the ",You Bastards" part, but I fucking lost it at the Grammatical Inquisition.

LOL see this is why the English language is the hardest in the world to learn to many bullshit words and not enough directness
Poelee Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011
This is hilarious.
Ocean-Pearls Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2011
I too speak/study Spanish. This made me giggle. :nod:
endperkins Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2011
How do you expect the average American to understand this when we can't even speak our own language correctly? :D
Serenity279 Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011
oh it's so much fun listening to non-Spanish speakers butcher the language XD
Javi3108 Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2011
This is EPIC!! All my life I have always been asking myself why do people say that!!! My cousin from the United States tried to correct me once by saying: "It's not problema, it's problemo!" And you can only guess how many Spanish insults I used on him that day! :)

I actually kinda like 'no problemation.'
SpeakThroughFingers Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I use that, but I never really thought of it as Spanish or even Spanish sounding. I just used it like "No Problemo, Joejoe"
cause you know. It rhymes.

Could be worst: many people on anglo-saxon-speaking world confuses portuguese with spanish, especially when talks to brazilian people...

ironic that everyone catches you for spelling Nazi in "Grammar Natzees" and calls you on it XD
dinyctis Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2010
It is quite funny indeed. I have my fun with those who say it with a nasty overtone.

As a mexican, I love "no problemo", it sounds hilarious.

I didn't even know that "No Problemo" was pseudo-Spanish... I just thought it was just a funny way to say problem. :la:
biancaxmd Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2010
PREACH IT BOTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But you know, how can we even ask non Spanish speaking people to speak it correctly when Spanish speakers can't even spell...
My statuses in facebook are ALWAYS making fun of some BURRO because they misspelled a word, or 2 or three.. arghhhh
alexasrosa Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
I officially want in the Institute!
I work as a translator and you can't imagine the phrases people use when trying to translate to a language that it's not their own.
It’s quite normal that foreigns don’t speak correctly, but please stop pretending you do, and most of all: stop acting like they’re Shakespeare and make up words.
dinyctis Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2010
It would make for quite entertaining correspondence, wouldn't it?

"Oh, I got a letter from the Institute for Quite Destroying Languages, You Bastards!"

As an Spanish native speaker, I hand down this. *.*

Y ahora, en castellano, que me he enterado que lo hablas... xD

GRACIAS!!!! :hug:

Same thing happens in Italian, too. I mean, it doesn't take more that three minutes to go and use an online dictionary. :|

I'm starting to like the sound of "no problemation". That's it, from now on, I''m going to usingate that one.
dinyctis Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2010
You can go ahead and use it. No Problemation!

There's no way I can resist saying "No problemation" to people, now.

Hehe, join the club :P
Reibeast Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2010
I wasn't aware no problemo was supposed to be spanish.
I just thought it was a fun slang term people used.
General-EbonRose Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2010  Student Digital Artist
Same here.
Lemniskate Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2010
In German there's the phrase "Null Problemo", which translates as "zero problemo"; however, since Germany has no large Spanish-speaking minority we don't associate it with Spanish.

(In Germanic languages the -o at the end has a long tradition as an intensifier, e.g. there's German "Feurio(-oooo...)" instead of "Feuer" being shouted from the highest church tower in the Middle Ages in case of fire. It's also in "hello".)
dinyctis Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2010
On a side note, I am amazed by how well Germans can speak Spanish. I once heard 2 german girls speak Argentinean Spanish and it took me a while to catch any hint of an accent.
whim7 Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
Oh! that is so true. I've meet people who seem to have taken Spanish lessons from Speedy Gonzales.

"Quit destroying languages, you bastards" :XD: Mori con eso.

Y me gusto que lo hayas hecho gracioso para que la gente no se enoje y capte el mensaje :thumbsup:
