Reminiscing about The Beano

Regretting its demise

I mentioned Dennis the Menace and Walter the Softie.

My mate said he liked his dog G'nasher.

I said "what do you mean G'nasher...it's Gnasher

The G is silent as in gnat"

But he insisted it was G'nasher.

We argued about it but couldn't agree

So I asked a passing boy the name of Dennis the Menace's dog.

He said G'nasher.


I just walked away.

Hahahaa, funny. When I was a kid, I always pronounced it G'nasher too! Only when I got older did I realise it was a silent g, but by then, G'nasher was stuck in there and didn't like to be changed!

I think the Beano is still going strong, Telboy.

Terrible when that happens, Telboy. Mind you, what do boys know about these things?
