comment Bueno as hello or greeting?
In Chile, ¡Buenas! is also used as a greeting, something I think wasn't used so often some time ago.

@JuanManuel: but "tarro", at least here in Chile, means a can, or something like a metal jar, but always made out of some sort of metal.

Here in Chile it is a bit different: Pancito, Trencito, Pececito, Solcito. There's even a very famous chocolate brand called "Trencito".
