    "Patranhas" quiere decir "pendejo", ¿no?. (Y tiene que ser portuguesa originalmente). Pero tenemos que aprender que quiere decir "esnei". Palabras verdes son importantes también. Supongo es mexicana por el uso de pinche.

    I guess patranhas is for patrañas...fables, invented stories...
    esnei may be a name...
    he was called patrañas esnei...

    THANKYOU!
    As I was drunk/pissed (slang pedo) I almost thought you were a changed man!
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."

    Hola Exx,
    Esta ves si tengo que decir que en C.A. la palabra pedo es usado de muchas formas. Tengo mucho conocidos de C.A. y usan esa palabra, todo el tiempo. Y todo depende de la conversacion.
    Por ejemplo,
    "Que pedo men?" quiere decir "what's up?"
    "No men, tremendo pedo!" quiere decir "nah man, big trouble".
    "Me puse bien pedo anoche" quiere decir "I got piss *a#$* drunk last night"
    Or as the previous example "casi te creo el pedo ese......" que quiere decire "I almost believed that crap that...."
    Ahhhh, isn't spanish lovely!
    hahaha!
    So many translation for one single word! hahaha!

    Hi,
    (I am a native Spanish speaker and a poor English speaker.)

    My *humble* opinion:
    Please provide "Country-of-Origin" for the phrase.
    Chile? Peru? etc...
    Consider Spanish varies from country to country.

    I agree with "Dragona"; "pedo" here sounds more as a slang for "lies", like "bullshit", "crap", etc.

    It is interesting the use of "CON el pedo". Definitely, it is something very "local".

    The sentence does not make feel that the speaker was drunk and that was the reason he/she was more gullible.

    Please review a few sentences before this one (more context), might that help proving the speaker was drunk?

    Another interpretation, given the use of "CON el pedo":
    For an Argentinian (not the same Spanish as in Spain, sorry...)

    "Pedo" could mean here that the speaker has the wrong impression/image about something. "Pedo" means "Borrachera", and for extension, refers to a distorted idea, a false assertion, a fantasy.

    The speaker is carried by a false belief, but not because she/he is really drunk.

    Now if the phrase was:
    "Con el pedo, estuve a punto de creerte ..."
    I would agree with Exxcentrica (La Guapa).

    Word order matters. This would sound to me as: "with my drunkeness, i was ..."

    Anyway, I do not think this is Argentinian Spanish, so ... let's be careful.

    Agree that patranias o patranhas means lies, enforcing thus the earlier.

    The listener is a known liar, and had created a "smoke screen" that he was a "new man" (smoke screen <==> pedo. ok? )


    Hope this helps.
