    Default What does "sarasa" mean?

    Hi, Do you know what "sarasa" mean? I heard it had different meanings depending on where you use it (Spain, Argentian, etc...)

    Hi Nabyl.
    In Argentina we use it as "Whatever..."
    It´s a slang we use to denote a long list of words without importance

    Actually, in traditional Spanish both sarasa and zarasa have a completely different meaning from the one given in Argentina.

    Sarasa, or zarasa, means both:
    a) a homosexual man and
    b) a woman who offers her body for a payment in money.

    I've also seen it as "asdasdasd", like you're just speaking utter nonsense.

    You have seen "asdasdasd", but never heard it, right?

    I find it really odd. Those are the first three letters of the middle row of the QWERTY keyboard.



    Where have you seen that used? You could just say "bla, bla" or any other phrase or word, like sarasa. Personally, I would have totally missed your point. 【・ヘ・?】

    Yup, that's the point. It's using the first three letters of the keyboard. It's the parlance of internet trolls, so to speak.
