Spanish Saying: Calavera no chilla.

Translation: Skulls don’t whine.

Meaning: Here, “calavera” refers to argentinian slang for a “party animal” or a person that loves to party. Thus, the meaning is “People that love to party shouldn’t complain about the consecuences”. This is usually said when people don’t want to early rise because they’re tired. This phrase is commonly uncomprehended by younger generations due to the slang term “calavera” not being so popular and thus easily confused with the literal meaning: skull.
