Look at this article that was in The Metro: Soup tin cocaine smugglers get 92 years in the can.

What does it remind you of? :D

Hahahah! Criminals inspired by Allan (and Rastapopoulos). I bet they read/watched Tintin and said, "Hey yeah, that could work!" XP

Interesting to see that the two convicted drug smugglers in this case were called Quick and Blake. Has Hergé's Brussels urchin teamed up with E.P Jacob's M.I.5 officer in a new Bande Dessinee pairing? Sad that Flupke and Mortimer couldn't keep their former friends on the straight and narrow.
