Dennis The Menace
It's only two years since D.C. Thomson's The Beano celebrated its 70th Birthday. Now it's time for Dennis The Menace to apply for his bus pass. He first appeared in 1951 and is 60 years old. But will he retire? No way. He's still going strong and he knows that David Cameron expects us all to work till we drop. Gnasher, his loyal canine companion, joined him in 1968. In doggy years, Gnasher should have expired yonks ago. BBC News Magazine wonders how Dennis has managed to survive for so long (title link).
