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?

Quiero comer los cusucitos.

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
