In one of Larry's posts (cant remember which one) he mentioned that Machin in French translated into "thingy or thingamajig", another name when translated equals the words whatsit or gizmo.
As I am now resident in Spain I was interested to know what the equivalent of Machin translated into when it was changed into Spanish. I will give you a clue, it could be in a sense A Macho Mans idea of "finger lickin good".
I found this while playing on the net ( another post with a difference) and thought id share it with you.
"A lot of the of cooked chicken sold is here is called Pollo Rostizado - spit roasted chicken, it is seasoned with a secret blend of herbs and spices, a kind of KFC.
Pollos El Machin, left roughly translates as "The Macho Guy's Chicken." which is a seasoned Roasted Fried chicken. It is also referred to as Pollo asado, or barbecued chicken."
Well there we have it, I have shared some rubbish information with you guys , sorry I can not share the chicken) , :-).
By the way, El Machin is not located here on the Costa Blanca, Spain but in San Miguel Mexico.
All this talk about food has made me hungry, anyone for Pollo?
