Although their thick Gaulish moustaches don't actually have any Samson-like, strength-giving symptoms, plucky boar-eating, Roman punching, holdouts, Asterix and Obelix, sported face foliage that played a crucial role in prolonging their power! You see, the magic potion that was responsible for their feats of strength would collect in their mighty moustaches, continually drip-feeding them enough raw energy to separate a centurion from his sandals!
In fact, the entire Gaulish village was blessed with magnificent mo's, and it should be no surprise that Getafix, the manufacturer of the magic, had one of the most splendid facial fronds of all! Those clean-shaven Roman bastards never stood a chance! Jesus, even the dog had one!
I'm hoping that in honour of Obelix especially, some of you will try out the long plaits, bushy moustache, no shirt combo. Come on you ginger gentleman! Give it a try!
Okay, we skipped day 13 somewhere there, but let's not let that get in the way of progress!
