Candado Facial Hair

Play episode
The Spanish word candado, or “padlock,” comes from Latin catenatus, meaning “chained,” also the source of the English word concatenation, which means “a series of things,” or literally “links in a chain.” In parts of the Spanish-speaking world, candado is also slang for “goatee and mustache,” which resembles a padlock. It’s also sometimes called a circular or barba española, a “circular,” or “a beard in the Spanish style.” That type of facial hair is sometimes jokingly known in English as a pudding ring. This is part of a complete episode.
