Spanish to English translations [PRO]
Slang / Guatemalan slang involved in extortion attempt
Spanish term or phrase: manfo
Either mangled Guatemalan slang or a standard word mangled so badly I can't figure it out.
Comes from a letter trying to extort money, threatening all kinds of ugly things if the victim doesn't cough up.

Alas, I am not making this up, the misspellings are in the original, but for context:

Mira perro no llamaste para ke mires ke no jugamos te pico tu casa x mierda y andas un picop azul va ke si perro tu hijo mariguanero mierda se va primero hijo de puta esto va de sector 3 la 18 a mí me vas a respetar vos mierda aki yo ***manfo*** perro mieda tus vecinos C y T ellos pagaron si no llamas no vayas a yorar maldito estúpido aias .....
