Asterix and the Britons (2)

An Englishman’s home is his castle, and his front lawn is his Hanging Garden of Babylon..

And we have saved the best til last.

The Britons: we talk funny..

..we drink warm beer..

..and are awful cooks.

Asterix and the Danes

Denmark: home of insane rage and introspection.

Cent pour cent Astérix

Right. Drink up your magic potion, and eat up your roasted wild boar – this week sees a full-on Asterixarama (with a brief 2-wheel detour in the country of his origin, but more of that on Wednesday) in order to get us all across the finishing line of this, the longest of theme weeks yet: let’s cane this mother, as René Goscinny might (but actually definitely never would) say.
