Word of the Day: ¿Como?
Translation: What? I beg your pardon?
Pronunciation: Ko-mow

Neanderthals are sooooo out of step. Does anybody say “I beg your pardon” any more? We’ve gotta teach Neal how to say, “WTF.” It’s an effective and contemporary frase, though a bit rude.

And here is where Spanglish offers an acceptable middle ground! “¿Como?” is as short and to the point, but more polite.
