This is a scream - whatever it's about!
I think it's about food
Wow. This is some really messed up arabic. And I have seen messed up arabic before.
I hope it's at least hilarious
No offense but writing a comic in mistranslated Arabic while your characters are supposedly Moroccans is a complete lack of knowledge of the Moroccan culture. Moroccans don't speak Arabic, they mostly speak Darija. A Darija-speaker wouldn't understand that comic and an Arabic-speaker wouldn't understand a Darija comic. However it was kind of funny.
No offense taken, and none intended. This was meant as an April Fools joke for my largely English-speaking and -reading audience, a cultural cliche wrapped in on itself. It was not meant to in any way be a functional comic from an Arabic point a view, let alone a Moroccan! So I guess, if nobody understood the comic, it was successful! April Fools!
Ahahaha! The arabic is horrible (Google translate, I suppose?) but extremely hilarious. And it's exactly how I felt when I went to the United States.
Yeah, Google translate. I'm glad you find it funny, I always felt this comic was a complete failure!
The translation of the comics' title is just hilarious :D !!Even with such bad Arabic, I could get the joke hahaha ! I can relate, I moved to Germany 3 years ago and the first couple of months here I switched to being semi-vegeterian until I located 'Halal' meat stores :D ..
Glad you managed to pull some sense out of this comic. But you can eat pretty great mideast food here in Germany! At least, it seems that way to me.
