Puta Gorda

Charley leaves Punta Gorda in ruins

At first I thought Punta Gorda was Spanish for “fat whore.” Which I thought was pretty funny. Especially when I read all the headlines and replaced Punta Gorda with Fat Whore. For example:

Charley leaves Fat Whore in ruins

Fat Whore hit hard by Charley

Bush tours ravaged Fat Whore
And my personal favorite
Outdoor services at a Fat Whore church

My fun ended with a quick translation on babblefish. I guess the Spanish word for whore is actually puta, not punta. Punta Gorda actually means fat end. It’s still amusing, but not nearly as funny.
