Softy Walsh says that we are more cautious than we used to be. He obviously hasn't met Gnasher lately who is ready to show him precisely how un-cautious he can be. Or the Bash Street Kids who are still un-cautiously giving teacher the run-around. Softy Walsh also ought to get his facts right: it's not 'Erbert but Wilfred who still wears his jumper pulled up just under his nose. Grrrrrr!
And - whooosh! - Billy Whizz may be the quickest kid in Beanotown - or anywhere - but he's not new, he's been running around here since 1964. So it must be a long time indeed since Walsh looked.
Then there's the romance, which, oddly for a softy, he doesn't like. He is right there. Romance is yukky. [Beano Reader's voice: It may not be what you like, Dennis, but we loyal readers enjoy Crazy for Daisy. So there.] Beanotown is more commercial than it used to be, but then so is everything, even menacing. (Rodger the Dodger helps us with the money- making schemes).
I'm off in the Menacemobile now to our 60th anniversary pie-eating party at the Town Hall. Softy Walsh had better be there. But, readers, you can join me at our super web-site www.beano.co.uk. See you.Reuse content
