Mafalda... a Genius Comic Strip by Quino

For those of you in Latin America, I am sure that you are familiar with Mafalda... that little Argentine girl from a Buenos Aires middle class family who was published by Quino in the mid-sixties and seventies and truly transformed strip history.

For those of you who don't know her and since, unfirtunately, Mafalda has never been translated to English, I wanted to share with you some masterpieces:



Mom: Mafalda! Since you are cleaning, why don't you clean the globe?

Mafalda: Do you want me to clean all the countries? Or just the ones with bad governments?



Lady: Some help for the poor kids... oh, thanks!

Some help for the poor kids...





Guille: I am amazed at the amount of stuff that a pencil can have inside of it...



Susanita: Hey Guille, do you want some of my sandwich?

Mafalda: No, he will never have baloney...



Dad: Well, Guille is big enough and we would have no problem in putting her here with Mafalda...

Mom: And you say, bring her little bed over, right?

Dad: Sure!

Guille (to Mafalda): They want you to be my wife!



Dad: Guille, come!

Let's build a castle! A castle with a king! Come on, bring me your stuff!

Guille: I cannot lend them to you for silly stuff, I am building apartments...



Guille: Right... he surely sucks imports...



Mom: Felipe, wake up, it's 7:15!

Felipe (asleep): Yes, mom, I am coming...

Contractor: Wait, wait! The demolition was not in this block!!!!

Felipe: How does my imagination manage to wake up before me?



Teacher: Let's see, Libertad, this is a triangle... how?

Libertad: As God Made It!

Teacher: No, no, take a better look, if all these three sides measure the same it is a triangle...

Libertad: Very Boring!

Teacher: No! A triangle with all equal sides is called...

Libertad: Ah! Socialist!

Re: Mafalda... a Genius Comic Strip by Quino

Apparently, I could not post from the first website... I re-posted from a different one and translated the strips myself.

Enjoy!

Guille!!!

Actually I love all of them, even Susanita!



And to answer your question from the ther thread, no I have no Argentinean blood in me, but she was pretty big in Mexico too. And well, she's particularly important in my house.

Trying to remember stuff that we use often in my house

"Y si mejor la pateo?" (if I kick it instead) From the strip in which Guille is unable to pronounce Democracia

"se estara psicoanalizando de incognito?" (is she getting psychoanalyzed incognito?)

"o se acabo la pintu o llego la censu"
(either the pain ran out or the censor... got here while looking at a half finished protest mural)

Hmm and tons others.. need to think here, they usually just come naturally

ah yes!

"Bajita como el nivel de vida" is another one we use often

And "sos un Machu Picchu" is another one we use every now and then

"gane al ta te ti, gane al ta te ti!"



I gave up translating, cause hmm well, you had to be there

I know... it is a shame that Quino never decided to write it back... as it is truly a masterpiece.

I love the one where Mafalda and Guille are having dinner and she refuses to have her soup (as usual). Then, when Mafalda is about to say something to their ma, the little one just stucks the spoon on her mouth and she runs to the toilet.

Actually, when I was in primary school, everybody used to call me Mafalda cus I had the same fecking haircut!
