    Default Translation for "vaina"

    I've heard many people from Venezuela say the word "vaina". What does this word exactly mean how what would be the translation in English?

    Actually a "vaina" is the name given to a sheath or scabbard, and it also is the name of a vegetable.
    But in venezuela they use "vaina" as "something".
    Example:

    ¡Quita esa vaina de mi cara!
    Remove that thing (vaina) from my face!

    Hope it helped

    It's a word commonly used in Colombia as well.
