Since Pete Landry has never been shown in the strip, I got to decide what he looks like. He's supposed to be handsome, so that's what I was going for. As for the Pablo/Paolo thing, many snarkers have noticed that Lynn didn't seem to notice that Portuguese, not Spanish, is the language of Brazil. Pablo is a Spanish name, while Paolo is Portuguese.
Edit: ...And yes, I am aware that there exist in Brazil people named "Pablo." That name combined with the fact that Lynn had him give Connie a Spanish nickname (let alone its pejorative connotation) led many readers to the impression that Lynn mistakenly thought that Spanish was the language of Brazil. And it amused me to imagine that Connie had somehow managed to be oblivious of this AND get Paolo's name wrong. (Hi, Josephus Rex!)
