Because it isn't widely used as a common language among people whose native languages are different (although it is a native language for a lot of people), as far as I know.

Even though I assume that the author's intent in suggesting Spanish as a universal language was more comical than anything else, I'm curious to know why he chose Spanish instead of any of the other 6499 currently spoken languages, that's it. I'd be fine with a it was a random pick, or I happen to like Spanish, but maybe he has some other reasoning.

I happen to like Spanish. 😄 Esperanto would also be pretty acceptable. The main language I'm against is English, although I know that's already the lingua franca of most of the world.
