Lightbulb Hacer el paripé

Significa fingir, hacer algo de forma falsa.
English?

¿Hacer el qué?


Nunca había oído esa expresión. Creo que aquí diríamos "hacerle al cuento" (fingir que se hace algo, pero en realidad no se hace nada).

Thanks, Perikles.
I'll need to have more Spanish friends to learn all those expressions.


Thread title's spelling corrected, btw.

Bueno, es una expresión bastante conocida en España, nuestra amiga Moliner lo define así: paripé (del caló «paruipén», cambio) m. Hacer el paripé. 1 Presumir. 2 Hacer melindres. 3 Mostrar cariño a una persona o tener atenciones con ella insinceramente. 4 Hacer algo para cubrir las apariencias. (Formalismo, simular.)
DRAE nos da:
paripé.
(Del caló paruipén, cambio, trueque).
1. m. coloq. Fingimiento, simulación o acto hipócrita.
hacer el ~.
1. loc. verb. coloq. Presumir, darse tono.

(So it could also mean to show off.)
