Top Ten Signs You're Addicted To Asterix

In the mid-1990’s, the Internet humor scene was proliferated by “Top Ten Signs”. It started with “Top Ten Signs You’re Addicted To The Internet“, and now includes Google and Blogging!

Well, I’m a self-confessed Asterix addict, and I tried to find signs you’re addicted to it, but there were none. Hence, I decided to come up with my own.  So here goes…

Top Ten Signs You’re Addicted To Asterix

10. You exclaim ‘By Toutatis’ in surprise.
9. You feel hungry after seeing Obelix eat boars.
8. You think all happy events should be celebrated by a feast.
7. You mutter ‘By Belenos’ under your breath, in front of enemies.
6. You feel everyone around you is, or should be, as clever with puns as you are.
5. You refer to the singer you don’t like as Cacofonix.
4. You call your coffee or drink the ‘magic potion’.
3. You think Julius Caesar is just a funny historical figure.
2. You search Wikipedia to find out more about the various French cities that Asterix travels to.

And the top sign that you’re addicted to Asterix is…

1. Knowing the French, you try to find some Asterix erotica online!

Lastly, if you’ve never seen it yet, the official Asterix website is worth a visit!

    haha!!! i liked your top ten. i haven’t read asterix in a while. i used to be a big fan. everytime i read it i found something newly funny in it.
    i especially relate to #5, that too with a twist. i know a few people who proclaim to be good singers and cannot carry a tune and would love to gag them and tie them up a tree, while i enjoy my boar in the moonlight.

  • Krishashok: you’re a pro with recursive loops, aren’t you? 🙂 Great additions!

  • Just a vain hope that living in infinite recursive loops will eventually lead to nirvana and enlightenment (although by definition, infinite loops lead to nowehere)
