Like us in England too? I'm a little surprised.
I lived across the street from a Norweigen family and yes their English was very good.

Righteous unilinguism is not an issue.

I would have gone with "lamenisity" or "excess of lame" - sounds much more intellectual.

There's an irony in using an adolescent term like "lameness" when criticizing another writer's vocabulary or literary prowess.

He says "es duro de empezar" , but a better translation should be "es duro empezar" , "duro" have also the meaning of "difícil" (difficult)

 
This discussion is lame. Obviously, they're singing 'securo de pessar'. "Pessar" being a widely used slang in latino countries for 'pesario' = the pessary in english. Ergo: "secure on the pessary". An ironic referense to the rather high risk if using a pessary as contraceptive method, and the indeed "hard to come back" nature of things, if failing.

Well, I must say the day is trending up - some serious & cooling rain here in the resort city of Houston.
And Madrugada revs it up.
