  1. Another great episode with lots of new material, at least for me. One thing that puzzled me at first was ” me sabe mal ” This did not seem to make much sense until, after a bit of research, i realised it was not ” saber ” to know, but ” saber” , to taste.

    • Stuart, you’re quite right. “Me sabe mal” does indeed reference the user of “saber” as “to taste”. Mark is going to pick up on this in a future episode of CBS.
