Spanish is fun

Today's Gaturro, for example, a sort of Garfield from Argentina, only funny, has the word golazo — and Google can't translate it! (Ok, ok, un golazo is a seriously cool sports moment like a great gol (with echoes). So Gaturro says to Agatha, "Agatha, being at your side is a real highlight for me." Flash through the panels, then Agatha says, "What's happening, Gaturro?" And Gaturro says, "Well, like any good highlight, we replay it from every angle."

Sometimes, too, Spanish is just cooler than English. A truck driver is a caminero, e.g. And swine flu is gripe mortal, which sums up my view on that subject just fine.
