The correct word for the singular of Tamales is Tamal, not Tamale.
Now, some of you may say, “yeah but who eats just one?”; and that’s because you’re an idiot. It’s not about how many you eat, it’s about not being a retard. In typing this, I am not referring to non-Spanish speakers, I am referring to the Spanish speakers who really should know better. Is it a huge deal? Probably not, but if you’re ok with fucking up one thing about yourself; what else are you ok with fucking up?
To me, it’s one of my pet peeves. I can’t take anyone seriously when they use it. It’s like looking at an Asian woman behind the steering wheel; you know it’s fucked up. Anyway, unfuck yourselves.
