A close friend of my uses "spanish" as an adjective (and "spanish practice"
for the noun) for something like "quick, shoddy, sketchy, unorganized". For
example, this would be a very "spanish" posting. My "spanish practices" in
e-mail can be annoying.
He claims it came from the WWF (wrestling not wildlife). A character, X-Pac
(I think), was/is often described as have a "spanish" wrestling style. Two
years ago I noted this and asked him about it because I had NEVER heard it
before. According to him, he's been saying this since at least 1988-- when
he first started to watch WWF.
