Hello, I would like to suggest a new entry.

1. Definition: Mula. noun. Slang. Cash or money.
2. My Example: "My uncle threw a wild crazy party on Saturday. He's got a lot of mula."
3. Examples Online (Reddit):
4. I was not able to find it in any of the dictionaries linked to in the instructions, but it is on Urban Dictionary.
Warning: This site, while useful, is often NSFW (not safe for work).
Urban Dictionary: mula

I was born in the late 80s, grew up in Seattle, and have occasionally used and heard this term for as long as I can remember.

It would also be good to add an entry to the English-Spanish dictionary.

As far as I know, there is no relation to "mula," the Spanish term for mule.

Do you recognize this term too? Please comment below.

    'Mula' is not used in Spanish with that meaning.

    The Spanish slangs are:

    - Pasta / Cuartos (Colloquial)
    - Pelas / Perras (Colloquial)
    - Tela / Guita (Youth slang)
    - Parné (old-fashioned / literary)
    - Plata (Argentina - Latin American)

    Ah, now that I see that spelling, I recognize it!

    But most surprisingly, it's not nearly as common as "mula" on Google nGrams. (Granted, nGrams also picking up some other uses of "mula.")
    Google Books Ngram Viewer

    With Spanish's increasing influence on American English, and given that the pronunciation of the Spanish "mula" is the same, could a case be made to add "mula" as an alternate spelling? (As attested to in my examples above).
