What's with the Hungarian in Springfield?

The Puzzler


RAY: This comes from Paul Mulick. He writes, "In the official police handbook for the Springfield Police Department, there are two pages printed in Hungarian. The rest of the book is in English. None of the men or women on the Springfield police force is Hungarian. In fact, not one person in the entire city of Springfield speaks or understands Hungarian."

The question is, why does the official police manual include two pages in Hungarian. Here's a hint: the fact that no person in Springfield understands Hungarian is one of the reasons that Hungarian was chosen.
