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.

    11. You try to find some­body to transalate the latin bits!

  • Nice addi­tions, Shiv Kumar! 🙂

    13. You actu­al­ly think that every adjec­tive end­ing in “us” or “ous” is a Roman name.
    14. You try to com­pose “Top 10 signs that you are addict­ed to aster­ix”

  • 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)
