Found out today ,in the current bun,
and
http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct...f-qhB_Bwo_mRQw

that a hero of mine is to have an adventure in the Highlands.
I have been a fan of this wee guy and his associates since I furst read them when working oops being employed in Motherwell Public Library awe those years ago.
I even still read new adventures aroon 1980 when at the Scottish Polis college when awe the others were studying the Road Traffic Law and the SCL ,Scottish Criominal Law, I was reading abot my wee hero.Twas strange that I was the one who lifted the academic prize on that course.The Commandants Cup IIRC and they gave me a Thesorus. My skool prizes ,I picked mysell,were awe motor bike books. Noo whit wood eye knead a theo sore as fur

The humour in these books is priceless and I am gonna huv tay search the loft for my books.

The cartoonist was amazing even Kirky Duglass goat in oan the action.

Anything after Goscinny died is tosh for me I'm afraid, but the original Asterix is the equal best interest of my childhood along with Lego, my zx spectrum, The Dandy and Swallows and Amazons. There's not much in my adult life that gives me as much pleasure as any of them did.

I tend to agree.They did appear to lose their full bhoona after Goscinny died however they are still better than nothing.
I was sure i posted about Unhygenix the fishmonger and his wife Bacteria,(ewe coodnae make it up...I wonder if it loses anything in the translation from the original French BUTT eye think the English translators doa brilliant job.
IF my memory seves me right there has already been a Scotman in it and I wonder if the Scottish adventure will have Unhygenix's long lost ancestoral fisherman Alexandrix n his wife Salmonella.

To assist in your lack of pleasure in adult life Badgers ..ewe shood have goat a facelift 166 m8.That's if eye have left any for anybudy else. Till then drink Guiness

The translators did an amazing job, I wish my French was good enough to compare the two.

Haha, would have loved a facelift 166, but couldn't find one, they're rarer than Gta sportwagons!

The Proclaimers and Clare Grogan were holding a rock concert to raise funds for the state banquet.
