Asterix is bad for your health…

17 06 2011

Probably my favourite article of the week… ‘Asterix books contain 704 victims of brain injury, study finds.’

The conclusion: “The role of helmet protection has been stressed by the authors, especially in view of the fact that strap-fixation should have been taken more seriously by the Roman besiegers and others.

I give it six months before we get a road safety advert featuring Asterix… And I also can’t wait to see a comparative study about how many of Tintin’s enemies were gnawed by Snowy! What a worthwhile use of funds and time…

I always knew there was something funny about the French.
