Asterix and the Soothsayer: Latin Jokes Explained

A bigger, better version of this article now appears on my new Asterix site - click the white link just above this article. The one that says 'Everything Asterix'.

I understand it's annoying to be directed here and have to go there, but I promise it's worth it.

The new site is extremely beautiful, by the way. It's probably going to win an award and be preserved by UNESCO.

The difference between this cramped, stuffy blog and that luxury site is the same as when you sell your one-bedroom flat in London and buy a six-bedroom villa anywhere else in the country. The furniture is better, the air is clearer, and you can stroll around your garden smelling flowers and sighing contentedly.

It also has a new webcomic called Asterix vs Hitler.




  1. Good one :-)
    Do you endorse Dr Ibrox's opinion that the French make good cheese?

  2. Prof Ibrox is a great guy and he knows his cheese. He introduced me to fondue and I've never looked back.

  4. Hi anonymous Asterix fan!

    Blog work is slow because I'm writing a book at the moment - one more amazingly funny than all the Asterix books put together. In the future, kids will make blogs explaining all the jokes in my book.

    But I will try to write the next Asterix post soon. Possibly today!
