    Sea como sea, es una palabra fundamental, sin la cual Argentina no sería lo mismo (?)

    The town in Brazil is "Garça". The pronunciation is different.
    The C in Garca is strong. It sounds like the C in "car".
    On the contrary, the Ç in Garça sounds weaker, like an S.

    After so much time in Argentina, I feel like it has one of the strongest slang in the world, with a tremendous variety. Dont you agree?

    Generally Absurd Ridiculous Character Association

    That I know of is a common way of communicating the character of someones attitude towards being a trickster or a hustler or a "party pooper"
    But it's very vulgar.

    Actually, it's a bit of both. The way common language evolves and takes shape in Argentina is never linear or simply binary as a process, being just as complex as its political culture, having multiple layers of meaning as they are diverse prevailing social ideologies in constant conflict, each generating their own terms to pejoratively refer to their socio-political antagonists. Given this complex idiosyncratic nature, slang terms in Argentina might share many origins or meanings at the same time.

    In the case of "garca" it might well come as a derivation of the term "oligarca", considering the oligarchy as a ruling social stratus (since the country's early days as a newborn nation-state in the late 1800's) has always been considered as an oppressing social class who has always (metaphorically speaking) "taken a dump" on the lower working classes, which were socially and politically neglected until the birth of populism as a sociopolitical movement in the 1940's

    So basically, oliGARCAS take major GARCOS over the less privileged people.

    That's the main general idea behind the common use of the term, and although anyone can "take a shit", you should never try to "cagar más alto de lo que te da el culo"/"take a dump that piles over the level of your own arse" (referring to another expression which reaffirms that your social "height" gives you and advantage even when it come to defecating, since the higher you climb up the social latter, the more people you are able to empty your vowels upon, and the less likely it becomes for you to get shitted on by others.
