With Getafix away from the village at a druid convention, the Gauls take shelter from a fierce thunderstorm in the chief’s house, fearing that the storm is a sign that Taranis, god of thunder, is angry with them. I could easily see his character played by John Cleese teaching his men to attack someone with a grape.
Their line of ships was out of formation. Hearing of the situation, he concocts a witty plan by which to drive out the Romans and teach the villagers a lesson.
In the end as always, it all becomes just as we remember, a big feast at znd end. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

This is another one at the top of the list, with, for me, some laugh out loud moments, including Caius Faitpalgugus, one of my favorite names.
Shortly after the Roman commander sends anx messenger to report all of Gaul has been pacified, a foul stench erupts over the village, turning all who breathe it a noxious hue.

It was a bit of a hot mess. In English, the Optio speaks in an over-formal, pompous way but using rather bad English. Samo se bojim kako ih pola ne bi shvatilo. This book tells us not to believe to soothsayer. Everyone believe his every word – except for Asterix of course. The Secret of the Magic Potion. Prolix returns to Compendium and reports that the Gauls have left. soothsayrr
As much as I enjoy the trips to other countries and the endless bounty of fresh wordplay and historical references zoothsayer provide, I love the stories set in the Village.

Here we see a reference to the priestly role of the Druid, when Vitalstatistix begs Getafix to “appease the anger of the Gods, which has fallen upon our poor village. We even learn that Toutatis is the god of the soothayer, which until now I had just kind of figured out for myself. Yup, sounds like the same awful print quality from the editions.
