Recently, Tryno Maldonado - Mexican writer and fellow scholar of Chola-Irish history - glowingly blogged about me and my St. Patrick's Day video. In describing my comedy, he used "chairez", a term en español que no conosco.
Platiqué con mi amigo Leo Agusto y me dejó con la impresión que "chairo" quiere decir "kitsch" o "campy". And now the linguist in me is dying to get to the bottom of this...
A simple Google search pulls up the following video called "Los Chairos" by a blogger named Plaqueta. Apparently, los Chairos are a new tribu urbana en México that likes to wear peasant shirts, eat organically and pass their time quejandose de la globalización.
So, ahora tengo unas preguntas..
¿De donde viene "chairo"? Es decir, ¿cual es la etimologia de la palabra? Quiero saber el origen lingüístico... No se encuentra en mi diccionario.
¿Soy chaira? I thought I was chola... y, claro, a veces, un poquito EMO... ahora, I'm having una crisis de identidad... :)
