This is an American classic. I think it is because it is a fun way to pay the bill in spanish, plus it is one of those things where you can get away with just a few wrong words or phrases.
I know a lot of spanish, so this was a great opportunity for me to learn more about the language and to see how the English in it differs from the spanish version. The English version is much more direct and a little too casual, so I wanted to know what would happen if I said something like, “Bueno, pero esta casa esta muy mal,” or “No sé qué es esto,” for example.
The spanish version doesn’t work well with Spanish, because it’s quite a bit of a bad way of translating spanish in English. But the spanish version isn’t very hard to read, and I can’t see why it wouldn’t work with Spanish.
The spanish version is a little hard to understand because it’s not like it has a defined sentence structure, and the verbs are quite a bit different from regular English.
