Asterix or Tintin-Pick one Please

But it's probably impossible. Look at all of the trouble these folks are having as they debate the merits of one versus the other... (via) Where do you all come down on the question: What do prefer- Asterix & Obelix OR Tintin?

"Tin Tin if it was for a discussion, Asterix and Obleix for a fight" "Screw Tin tin. Mead swilling, boar eatin, rock throwing, awesome beardin Gauls FTW!" "Damn this is actually a lot tougher then I would have expected...... Tintin takes it though... but only just."

"A&O never heard of the other one sry." Never heard of Tintin? Really?

Okay, let me just make clear that I have NOTHING to do with the typos here.

Asterix chowin' Down on Mickey D's

Controversy in France over this new McDonald's billboard featuring our heroes, Asterix and Obelix, chowing down on some burgers and fries.

"A new McDonalds advert featuring Gallic champion Asterix enjoying a burger and fries has sparked outrage among French comic purists who see it as an insult to their national heritage.

The billboard shows the fearless Gaul and friends celebrating their traditional banquet at the fast-food chain — with Cacofonix the bard tied to a tree outside as usual.

“My childhood hero sacrificed like a wild boar! What next? Tintin eating at Subway?” said one horrified blogger called sirchmallow.

“How ironic, the indomitable Gauls making an advert for the invaders,” was another outraged comment on Twitter." (via)

Now, Tintin at Subway is just ridiculous. But these guys at McDonald's? As much as I don't like it, I'm afraid I can totally see it.

The Little Prince never looked so good

Barbapapa is Smokin'

This just strikes me as wrong. A Barbapapa Cigarette Case Lighter. More inappropriate than a cartoon Joe Camel.

But if you want it, it's yours on Ebay.

Babar Goes to the Movies

Do you think it's true? Babar on the big screen? According to recent news, Babar could be gracing our local cineplexes soon. (via)

And who's making the movie? Yup-the producers of the Twilight saga. Babar as a vampire? I'm not sure. The Old Lady? Definitely.

The Blue Lotus, recovered

Tintin lovers, even the most fanatical traditionalists, love a Tintin homage. And The Covered Blog does not disappoint wih this reinterpretation of Le Lotus Bleu by Philip Debongnie. (via)

The Original:

The Recover:

Kind of want this big as life for a poster in our house.

Happy Birthday, You Little Prince

I'm not sure a one-year-old can really appreciate The Little Prince. But you can, with a Cake Topper for your little one's birthday. Just don't eat it, cause it's made of clay. (via)

Wear The Little Prince around your neck

A necklace for the true Little Prince fan.

"This little prince necklace is made of me in red wax and moulded sterling silver 925. It has a matte and antiquated finish." (via)

Okay, I hope it's made by her and not of her-and, I wish I could make jewelry too!
