Apr-14-07  vonKrolock: From Rio de Janeiro (* 2-vi-1959 - + <?!> 2003 ) Two times brazilian Junior champion, played in two World Junior Ch 1977 and 1978, and some Opens and IT in Europe and USA. Not a pro full time, but his activities as trainer, teacher and player were remarcable - notably in the Flamengo Club from his natice city. Always had a fragile health.
Apr-14-07  NakoSonorense: <Jose Soares Masculo> Lol!

  chancho: <NakoSonorense> El tiene masculo que los demas.
Apr-14-07  NakoSonorense: <chancho> No tanto como las boricuas!
Apr-14-07  Kaspablanca: jajajaja, que risa me dio al leer el apellido de este jugador, me meo me meo,jajaja.
Premium Chessgames Member
  chancho: <NakoSonorense> Tienes razon. hehehe.
Apr-17-07  vonKrolock: I know about a pun with his surname, but this is funny only for Spanish ears; in Portuguese, Másculo means just "masculine", maybe with an emphasis to a quality, not to the gender itself (it would be "manly"?!)
Premium Chessgames Member
  chancho: <vonkrolock> Masculine in spanish is masculino. Thanks for explaning what his last name means in portuguese.
Apr-17-07  vonKrolock: <chancho> Nosotros tenemos la palabra 'masculino' también, pero, como he dicho, 'másculo' es más fuerte, pués un ser 'masculino', puede que no sea 'másculo' ;)
Dec-14-07  NakoSonorense: I was looking at my kibitzing history and saw this guy’s name again. I burst out laughing... I mean, I don’t even want to imagine how his early schooling was, but I will. :)

Maestra: Buenos días a todos.

Todos: Buenos días maestraaa.

Maestra: Antes de empezar, quiero que todos se presenten y digan lo que quieren ser de grandes.

Maestra: Muy bien, excelente idea. El que sigue por favor.

  technical draw: Seguro que tiene que ser Jose Soares Masculo, ni modo que lo deje en su casa.!
Feb-06-08  DanielBryant: So what does it mean in Spanish?
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <DB> You must mean, what does that mean in English. His name is Jose Soares Masculo which in English is Jose Soares Plusass. And I said, of course it Plusass he can't very well leave it at home!
Apr-13-08  DanielBryant: I simply don't get any of these jokes.
Apr-13-08  Morales: As already explained by master VonKrolock, "másculo" (stressed in the first syllabe) is a vernacular and elegant word in Portuguese (you can see in any dictionary), that means "manly", "virile". It is etimologically similar to the italian word "maschile" (that means "masculine", refering only to gender). Of course, every man in Brazil or Portugal will be proud to be called "másculo". There is absolutely no sense in the reading "más + culo" (plus + ass), by spanish speakers, because "culo" is a spanish vulgar word, not portuguese.
