Spanish translation:Sin contexto, no es serio.
Explanation:
Los traductores profesionales sabemos que no es posible - ni serio - traducir una expresión fuera de contexto, máxime en un caso como este, en el que varias interpretaciones son posibles. Sugiero que imprimamos más seriedad a nuestras respuestas, y exijamos el contexto.
