Rengo y pirujerías

Estoy leyendo un libro de Angeles Mastretta (mexicana) y a lo mejor tu me puedes decir lo que significan "rengo" y "pirujerias." Tengo la idea, más o menos, pero no las encuentro en el diccionario de Tomisimo, asi que pensé que me podrías ayudar.

Sería de mucha ayuda si podrías escribir aquí toda la frase en la que aparecen estas dos palabras.

Hola Marsopa:

Rengo = cojo
lame

Pirujerías
de la palabra piruja (Mexico) which means prostitute (of the most despicable kind)

But I see Rusty has already answered your question.

Please read your messages.

The "a lo mejor" question moved to its own thread.
