Hola,

¿Qué significa la frase "de puro burro"?

Por ejemplo, "decía guarradas y cosas de puro burro".

Saludos

"de puro burro" means"of really donkey origin" meaning dunce.
It's speaking about things you don't have even a little idea.

"decía guarradas y cosas de puro burro".
He talked about dirty (sexual) things and other dunce things.


Saludos

De acuerdo con Sosia.

La frase querría decir que era tan tonto/ignorante, que sólo decía bobadas y majaderías.

Like bull in English. This is pure bull could probably be said éste es puro burro. Right?

Just a note: I think it might mean of pure butter in Italian.
