Welcome to the SWD Buzz. Stick around a while. Try to speak some Español while you're here.

To abide by my own rules, here is a link to the famous winking Bettie Page (nudity warning).

That Spanish Bettie looks to be in the style of Little Annie Fannie.

May I suggest a nudity warning? Some poeple might get in trouble opening that at work ;)

A comic book in Spanish is not necessarily drawn by Spanish or Latin artists. Translated comic books are big business. I've lost touch, but in the old days there were Spanish versions of all the Archie comics, Nancy, Dagwood & Blondie, and the plethora of Disney comics (I liked those) among many others.

In Buenos Aires I bought some Mafalda comic books but haven't had the chance to read them yet.

I once had 10 or 12 Mafalda books. They're hilarious. But be warned, they're quite, quite dated. In the early ones, Mafalda makes a big deal about her family buying a TV. And there are references aplenty to Vietnam, U Thant and other 60s and 70s things. I had other Quino cartoon books as well. He did a great deal with cartoons devoid of any dialogue.

Anyway, you may want your tutor to fill you in on the background. What was Argentina like when Quino wrote them?

Palabra: burbuja


Today's SWD means bubble. Some related words are espuma = foam and burbujear = make bubbles.

A question for the advanced readers is how does burbujear differ from borbotar.

Ejemplo time.

Me gusta relajarse en una bañera de burbujas. = I like to relax in a bubble bath.

A better question is how you keep coming up with such obscure words.

Quote:

Close.

"Me gusta relajarME en un baño de burbujas."

BTW I've never seen a bubble bath anywhere other than on TV and the movies.

Right from the dictionary. I have no idea which is common and which is obscure.

And you're readnig translations which may use obscure words on purpose... Oh, well.

Have you considered reading books written in Spanish rather than translations? That ought to give you a better sense of languege use (not a good one, naturally, as you're still faced with biases by the authors).

I recall seeing a jar of that product in my cousin's bathroom. I still have neever seen one used.
