I would draw these strips during class when I was supposed to be paying attention.  Often with the paper hidden in my lap just under the desk.  For the most part it worked out, but sometimes it means that when you’re writing stuff in a foreign language when you don’t speak that foreign language, like Walky’s very brief skip through a Spanish radio channel, and you might be forced into using one of the few basic words from that language you know off-hand.  Like “amigo” and “fiesta.”  Or “Amigo fiesta,” why not.  Loosely translated, “Friend party.”  You know, versus those other kinds of parties featuring your enemies.

These days, there’s Google.  On your phone.  Kids these days, they got it easy.
