Cuba’s revolutionary brothel

The humor of Garrincha in Martí Noticias:

"Before the Revolution, son, this country was a brothel."

    I know that Babalublog translates some of Garrincha's wonderful carticatures into English, but too bad that Garrincha doesn't write English subtitles into his illustrations, so that he could reach more people instead of the usual preaching to the choir.

    By the way, Garrincha's slang is often times difficult to understand. I wish that he would write in standard Spanish.
