The ability to consume pornography is the distinctive characteristic of the imbecile.

  1. The original Spanish is:

    La capacidad de absorber pornografía es el rasgo distintivo del imbécil.

    The verb used here (absorber) is a cognate of the English word "absorb." The Spanish verb can mean "absorb," that is, to "soak in" in a passive sense, but can also mean "consume," as in "take in a product."
