¡Ni Madres!

Today we're going to talk about the expression "ni madres".

There are two meanings to this phrase that I know of, and that's what we're going to discuss today.

The first meaning is the most simple and straight-forward, not that either of these are complicated.

¡Ni Madres!
No fucking way

Not that ni madres actually translates to the F-word, but this is a pretty close approximation.  The big thing to recognize here is that "ni madres" is a very rude way of saying "no way!".  It's usage is the same as "no way", so we don't really need a lot of detail here.

Let's move on to our next example.

No le entiendo ni madres cuando habla

Ni madres takes on a completely different meaning in this example.  It translates to something like "shit" or "jack shit".

No le entiendo ni madres cuando habla
I don't understand jack-shit when he talks

Here are a few more examples:

 Mi telefono se chingó y ahora no veo ni madres en la pantalla
My phone is fucked up and now I can't see shit on the screen

No hice ni madres en el trabajo hoy
I didn't do jack-shit at work today

Pan comida, ¿verdad?

That's it for today, ¡hasta pronto!
