Vi una composición de Les Luthiers en la obra Hacen Muchas Gracias de Nada que se llama El Rey Enamorado (ve al segmento que comienza en el minuto 4:30).

En el mintuto 9:20 comienza una canción muy graciosa donde el serenatista canta una cosa y el músico la repite, conjugando las palabras apropiadamente con un fin humorístico. Al final de la canción, dice lo siguiente:

--Pareces fría, sujeta.

--Parece fría, su... su cara.

¿Cuál es la palabra implicita aquí? ¿A qué se refiere el "su..."? O sea, ¿cuál es el chiste aquí?

The guitarist is trying to keep up with the other guy, he had to change anything he says, and sing it, but he has to say it in third person, since the idea is to get the woman to like the other guy.

The guitarist has a really hard time with this conversion, and almost screws it up by using the wrong word combo.

Pareces fría, sujeta = you look cold woman

Parece fría, su...jeta = her face looks cold

Since "jeta" means "face" or "mouth" seems like a common word, but it's not. In most countries is an offensive way to refer to the mouth, since this word is also used to refer to the mouth of a pig.

I suspected there was a reason why he hesitated saying it! Now it all makes sense. –  Paul Jul 21 at 15:18

Es que como el guitarrista esta repetiendo todo lo que el dice agregando el su y jeta significa cara, el dice:

sujeta

su, (su cara==su jeta)
