-ador means "one who [does]" rather than "one who [is]," so it's "one who trims," or "a trimmer." I suspect it's roughly something akin to our expression of "cutting it close."

I love it when The Cellar posts things related to what I'm studying in school.

Apparently the ancient Minoans did it too:

It doesn't matter. Unless we're letting animals just go around doing whatever animals do, without exploitation or interference, those folks are going to be protesting. Think of cows in New Delhi.

My wife agrees with Clobfobble and Cloud on the translation. It doesn't really translate as it refers to the people specifically doing this activity.

She also had a few other choice words. Idiota, pendejo, and a few unprintable others.

The first game I ever saw had 8 guys at a table and they were actually playing cards. The cards really made it special. They went everywhere on impact like a giant exclamation point!

I'd love to see Chicken On A Chain or Code Blue going all in.
