¿Quién es ese "Garfield"?

Been trying to learn Spanish for decades, ever since high school, and after all this time El Gordo y la Flaca still leave me in the dust.

Nik's Spanish is not exactly Academy-ridden, either. He's from Argentina, and there are lots of neologisms in Latin America. For example, another panel recently held the phrase "Gomería la parche, la + veloz" — Gaturro wearing a sandwich board (he's widely read, get it?) Well, gomería is not in my dictionary or the RAE's dictionary either. I think what it means is, "Stuck on The Patch, fast acting," presumably a nicotine patch. Could be wrong... :) Frequently am.
