Does this one even make sense in other languages?
The work of a guest artist.
This teacher comes from a different sort of school.
The Spanish-language website religionenlibertad.com picked up a story about Off by a Mile from the Internet and reworked it, converting one of the strips into Spanish. They translated the strip “First Time for Everything,” below, as follows:
PARA TODO HAY UNA PRIMERA VEZ
Tras el primer huevo de Sally llegó su primera llamada al 112: «Sí, sí: blanco, ovalado, suave… ¡Gracias a Dios, ¿así que dice que es totalmente natural?! ¡Uf, gracias!… ¿Cómo? ¿Que vendrán más?».
Three things I’ve learned from this:
(1) The emergency number 911 is not universal (it’s 112 in this case).
(2) “Whew” is translated “Uf.”
(3) A gag about a chicken talking worriedly on the phone about her first egg can work in another language.
