Brody

As you may have noticed in other instances, the contact between different cultural groups will produce unexpected and sometimes some rather comical results.  This is the case in Acapulco, which has been a port facing the Pacific for over 300 years and a mass tourism destination for at least 50.

Acapulqueños are renowned throughout Mexico for their usage of a word to refer to friends, acquantainces or whomever they are talking with at the moment: "Brody", deriving from the English "brother".  A word that is used all the time, it is the trademark of their speech together with their lack of pronunciation of the letter s.
