    Cacafuego

    A braggard, a boastful person who hogs the limelight with tales of their deeds.

    Caca is Spanish for shit, while Fuego is the Spanish word for fire, so literally translated Cacafuego means fireshitter.

    Cacafuego was a Spanish ship captured by Sir Francis Drake so the insult might have originated from the bragging accompanying the capture of the ship.

    Example usage:

    “That guy just won’t stop telling us how great he is, the cacafuego!”.
