OK.... who's a fan of the Asterix books? We all are here, and especially Mum, who's good at French anyway, so she has a collection of Asterix books in French.

If you are, you'll know of the big guy, Obelix, and his love of hunting and eating "Sanglier" (Wild boar), so you'll be as impressed as Mum and Dad were at spotting this trophy head on the wall of the local farm-shop; the same place they bought the cheeses.

Actually, they tell me, the walls of the place were a veritable menagerie of stuffed animals - badgers, geese, ducks, deer; anything the average French countryman loves to annihilate in the hunting season.
