GONZALEZ, Horacio. Spitting on the barbecued meat.Translated byMarta Ines Merajver. Sociedad (B. Aires) [online]. 2008, vol.4Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0327-7712.

From the analysis of a popular Argentinean idiom, this article develops the ways in which a country's inhabitants boycott their homeland through actions of sacrificial desecration. Argentina will soon commemorate the Bicentennial of its independence, and the country owes itself an examination of its history and of its self-condemning forms of language.
