Deme su dinero...

Me contaron que una señora iba por la calle y de repente sale un maleante con un cuchillo y le dice a la señora:

--Deme su plata o la degollo.

Y ella responde

--Pués mejor la de Goyo.

Rusty, there must be some words that I don't understand in your joke. I get the answer, but not the question...

I didn't know quebrada meant ravine. I say desfiladero. Thanks.

La Quebrada también es un baile ¿no? Para ravine/gully, creo que la palabra más común en México sería barranca. Creo.

De la DRAE:
desfiladero = paso estrecho entre montañas
quebrada = (acepción 11) paso estrecho entre montañas

Son dos palabras de la misma agua. Gracias por haberme enseñado otra palabra, Iris.

Hablando de agua, una quebrada también se refiere a las aguas que se puede encontrar en un desfiladero, y otros lugares (quebrada, acepción 13). Por eso volaba el pato ...

Se usa vaguada en España para quebrada, o es solamente un centro comercial en las afueras de Madrid y nada mas.

Le pregunté a una mexicana y me dijo que quebrada era como un tipo de cascada, pero no supo qué más decir.

Oh, y el baile suele llamarse la quebradita no la quebrada.

Pues.....

Va un indito y su esposa al Consulado Americano. Le dicen que firme la hoja de registración, y el dice:
"No, siñor, no se firmar"
"Entonces la huella"
"Menos, la güeya tampoco sabe escribir"

En fin, desfiladero en Mexico se llama barranca (mas común). Y si, la quebradita es un baile que se llama así porque cuando se baila es como si estuvieras "quebrando" a tu compañera.
