Well, it’s still a popular Spanish curse word that we often use to express frustration and bafflement.

My adopted grandma used to say “que puñeta” when I was little. Generally, people back then just said puñeta.

It’s a passive curse, never directed at a person, but rather at a situation. In my understanding, that’s how it’s used. Many people I know still use it, including me.

“puño” is a clenched fist or hand. A common reaction in times of agitation.

I wonder if this old curse word is also common in other provinces in our country as well? – A
