Spanish term or phrase:repartidor de pastas
Y otra mas, seguro que esto es algo muy sencillito, a mi me suena como a repartidor de pizzas, pero el texto no me da ningun contexto claro, y no me fio
Explanation: could be...
(ink)paste spreader(printing press)
A dentrifice delivery man/boy
Frenchman with a goose farm, perhaps
A mad welder with a vat of soldering paste going door to door?
An Italian altruist
The list goes on!
For sooth, ´tis a quandry great and mysterious.
Probably someone with a delivery van servicing Italian (and non-Italian) restaurants about town, but how would one know?
I am in the same position than before about how to translate this term, but your detailed answer has made me decide about contacting the author of the text and ask, in the fear that I am most possibly going to do it wrong otherwise,as it is a comic text and it might be that any of the possibilities that you give me is the right one. Thanks to everybody, anyway! 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Errr....pues mi problema es ese, Cecilia, que no tengo ningun contexto, y no se bien de que se trata....tenia la esperanza de que fuera alguna frase hecha que yo no conociera, pero parece que no es asi...gracias de todos modos
