Dec-06-04  ConLaMismaMano: This is one of the worst insults in spanish.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: So there's a loophole in that lets you get away with typing in the name E Puto without getting bleeped out? If someone else figures this out, they might start posting obscenities in other languages...oops
Dec-07-04  jcmoral: I've already seen some, unfortunately.

  meloncio: Just for curious people, puto means (male) prostitute. Female would be puta. Don't ever say these words to your spanish friends!
Dec-07-04  Lawrence: <meloncio>, have you seen where <Tamar>'s avatar was painted?
Premium Chessgames Member
  meloncio: <Lawrence> Yes, Puteaux. Speaking in bad French it sounds like the Spanish "puteaos" (extremely browned off). Is this what you mean, and is correct my translation?

BTW, I like the picture a lot and I just got it as wallpaper in my PC. Thanks!

Dec-07-04  Lawrence: <meloncio>, I imagined it would be pronounced simply "putó." Within the limits of guideline 1, your translation is fine.

  tamar: That's a relief!

  vonKrolock: The game against Fischer made Puto's fame, but he was already an esteemed Chess fighter: <In 1964 Erwin Puto of Western Electric beat Bobby in one of the exhibitions. Erwin was the steadiest 4th board player in the CICL in the first decade of our history. He made all the matches and won something like 8 out of 9 games he played. The final position of this game (with an imminent Mate in 2) was commemorated by being diagrammed on the League’s Official Match Results form- smack in the center of it. Sadly, Erwin passed away before reaching middle age.>

In Italian, the male form, and whith two T, is not necessarely insulting: <PUTTO plural Putti, a nude, chubby child figure, often with wings, frequently appearing in both mythological and religious paintings and sculpture, especially of the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Derived from personifications of love, or Eros figures, in Greek and Roman art, putti came to be used to portray cherubim in Italian paintings of the 15th century, especially those of the Madonna>

The female form, and calling someone the son of one, is really very injurious in Brazil, although Soccer referees' mothers are already used to hear this...

  meloncio: <Lawrence> I knew, but I liked to read it in a "extremely" literal way, just for fun. And what is the guideline 1?

<vonKrolock> I have been this summer in Italy, and I saw some pictures and statues with the title "Il puttino". Me and others spaniards laughed a lot for so strange and funny name for us. I know the reason now, thanks!

Here's the same about the football (don't like the word soccer) referees's mothers, you know.

Dec-08-04  Lawrence: <meloncio>, guideline one is the one about <No obscene, racist, sexist, or profane language.>
Dec-08-04  Leviathan: <meloncio> The italian player Giovanni Leonardo di Bona (1552-1597) was called "il Puttino" (little boy) because he became famous as a chessplayer when he was only 8.

  vonKrolock: <meloncio> Yes, the term putto-putti is so current in this sense that even the surname Putti is quite natural sounding, i believe

<Here's the same about the football (don't like the word soccer) referees's mothers> jaja :o) - Well, i prefer Foot-ball too, but pass so for our American friends dont remain whith a doubt (WE know for sure)

By the way, next Sunday the glorious Atlético Paranaense, from Curitiba, can win the Brazilian Championship whith a Round to spare if wins against Vasco da Gama in Rio and Santos dont win agaisnt São Caetano in São Paulo - the atleticanos are waiting for the support in Rio of the Flamengo and Botafogo fans - them plus Vasco (yes - the three from Rio de Janeiro) are menaced whith the downgrading to Second Division, so... Viva Atlético!!

# É melhor que o Juiz e os Bandeirinhas lá não sejam todos um bando de filhos da *#+@

<Leviathan> Well remembered

  meloncio: <vonKrolock> Good luck! The last and only time my team (glorious SEVILLA F.C.) was champion was in 1946. :-(( But we don't lose hopes of get it some year. This season Barcelona FC is too strong, perhaps the next year ...

<Leviathan> Grazie mille!

Premium Chessgames Member
  vonKrolock: <meloncio> Thanks! Brazilian Soccer Championship is for Soc... sorry Foot-Ball as Soviet Ch used to be for Chess - the major event from the leading country (in what concern to good native players, off course). I'm sure Sevilla will becomes sooner or later National Champ again - as our other team here Coritiba Foot-Ball Club (founded 1909), Braz. Champ in 1985

Mar-21-05  familyguy: another interesting fact is that the in Italy the puttanesca sauce for spaghetti was derived from fact that is was the sauce made by prostitutes for the men hence "putta"
Jul-29-10  Dredge Rivers: Didn't he used to be a planet?

No, wait, that's PLUTO!

Never mind! :)

Jan-03-12  King Death: This poor guy.
