This I can confirm. He's got a friend who is a crocodile. He lives in a house, walks on his hind feet and wears clothes. His day job is as an animal at the zoo, where, after clocking in, he takes off his clothes and lies down to be like a real animal for the kids to see at the zoo.

British Dictionary definitions for tovarisch
tovarisch

So you better write "t(o/a)varishtch". Or keep with the bastardized English version.
