Gwen Cooper Quotes: Mocho Was A Spanish Word That Meant

Mocho Was A Spanish Word That Meant Maimed Or Referred To Something That Had Been Lopped Off Like A Stump. To Call Homer El Mocho Was, Essentially, To Call Him "Stumpy" Or "the Maimed One."
It Doesn't Sound Particularly Flattering, But Among Spanish Speakers The Giving Of Nicknames Is Tantamount To A Declaration Of Love. Things That Would Sound Insulting Outright In English Were Tokens Of Deep Affection When Said In Spanish.
