I've heard a couple of people from the spanglish speaking areas of texas
say they were speaking Spanish. What killed me was when one of them said
"Hasta la bye bye" Agh.

Anyway, the most used example of Spanglish discussed in my classes is the
classic:

Puche los breques! - Push the breaks!

or

Wacha el carro - Wash the Car
