Yes.  But it's impossible, or at least highly problematic, to claim that "we as a society think" anything.  Although in principle, sure, I'd agree with Stanley's assertion.

This thread is flawed?

Is that Spanish?  And does it mean, "I want to eat the [cusocitos]?"

Cusucito is some kind of colloquial word of sorts that means "little armadillo."

Yes, well, my Portuguese pwns your Spanish.  Especially since I don't remember anything about either language.

I made up a language the other day.  It's called "Spengali."

Hot.

Spanish and Bengali?

Yeah, my grasp of both languages is so gutter poor that I accidentally merged them into one the other day.  Hot, I know.  :P
