English to Spanish translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase:ass clown
As in: "My incompetent contractor is a real ass clown!"
I'm looking for a pretty direct translation, rather than just a spanish word that means "incompetent" or "stupid", etc.I know that clown is payaso, but as for "ass" there are two meanings:
1. to mean a donkey
2. to mean your bottom/backside.
In this expressión, I think, that "burro" or donkey is the one to use, since it's used to stress ignorance in humans... ignorance and stubborness.....
(even though, I'm convinced that poor hard working donkeys don't have anything to do with this derogative name) .
Noooow the "clown" part, well... this contractor is so stupid and senseless that he is not even a real clown, but a fake one!!!
Good luck from Oso ¶:^)
