The perpetrator of this put-down dialogue does not say the h- in 'what'. 'Juan' for this speaker is a wan name. I wonder how well the author of this piece speaks another language, that is, one besides hw-less English. Likewise, whether the amount of laughter evoked by the joke is inversely proportional to the laugher's ability to speak foreign languages. Just a little wry irony from me at this moment.
