As in "So what?" As in "What's so great about that?"

No me importa

But it's not very "slangy."

What is the situation?

Situation is my MC (a cat) has been supplanted in the affections of her owners by a new baby. The parents are all excited because the baby has just learned to crawl, and the cat says to herself "Big hairy deal. I could do that when I was less than a day old, and I couldn't even see yet."

Cats speak Spanish? I thought they spoke lol.

well, mine are anyway.


Quoi de neuf? me parlez-vous ? mais, êtes-vous secousse?
(What's up? You talking to me? well are you, punk?)

Yeah, that's why I'm needing so much help with this translation. Google doen't have a Cat-to-Spanish function. lol

Now, now - they're called Persians, Siamese, and Russian Blues for a reason. Cats are multilingual, just like parrots. But unlike herring, who all speak Swedish.

But... cats all speak Kittish. I would say, "¿qué importa?", or "¿y qué?"

Unless, of course, I could find some juicier slang :D

Kathie Freeman
06-08-2008, 07:56 PM
"¿y qué?" was what my s/e dictionary suggested, I guess I was just hoping for something a little more up to date or slangy.

You could always go for the traditional:

"¿Y?"

Other options include:

"¿Eso qué?"

and

"Oh, qué gran logro."

Kathie Freeman

"Oh, qué gran logro."

I like that one, but shouldn't it be "Ay, qué gran logro"?
(not to be nitpicking, lol)

It's big fat hairy deal. Since I'm sure you want to use the phrase correctly. :D

(Hey - it was back in the pre-PC olden days. What can I say?) ;)

Kathie Freeman
06-10-2008, 08:07 PM
Well, her English isn't that good and my Kittish is worse, so I may have missed a word or two.

It doesn't make a differnece, I'd guess. It really depends on the person saying the phrase :D I've heard both, but personally, I use Oh instead of Ay. I reserve Ay for accidents or when I'm truly exasperated.

I thought herring spoke Norwegian.

No, no -- cat's don't speak Spanish, exactly.

They all speak Catalan.

Freshwater fish speak pure Finnish ...

ocean fish speak a dialect that is, well, a bit saltier ...
