you must be kidding right?

anyway, i guess that all this is just misinterpretation of the words "puta madre"

I´ll try to explain you the meaning of this two words here:

Fotos de tu puta madre = Photos of your ******* mom.

Fotos con tu puta madre = Photos with your ******* mom

Fotos de puta madre = ******* great photos

Sorry for using such a tasteless vocabulary, but do you notice the differences?

I do understand that for a native english speaking person, even this last use of the words may be too harsh, but for a native spanish speaker from Spain that expression is so common and after all so deeply rooted in the regular vocabulary that everyone take it as innocuous as saying, for example, " great photos", at least on a casual conversation as the one that can be hold on this kind of boards.

hope it helps this post to give you a more accurated picture of the post you´ve quoted.

Ciao!

Fotos de puta madre= ******* amazing pics.

It's not a swear word in spanish, it's just the opposite. It's an idiom, you shouldn't translate it literally.
