French comic to stop American imperialism

Asterix's newest adventure: stop the invaders from "Tadsylwien" (anagram for "Walt Disney"), led by the sinister "Hubs" (anagram for you-know-who), whose justification for invading Gaul is a search for the Gauls' "stockpile of lethal weapons."

Amusing, yes, but precisely the type of childish hostility that conservatives mock.

However, the rest of the article is fascinating in its description of the process of tranlsating the rich and varied puns in the Asterix comics.
