I don't know if you've ever spent any time in North Africa but at some point someone is sure to try to sell you a carpet...

In the Golden Press edition of Crab Haddock uses the insult "rug merchants!"which I think has even more punch :D

He says it in Unicorn too. . . . . .
I thought that "Bagpipers" was funny too (unicorn again)

Well, if you've read "Tintin in the Land of the Soviets" you know where my username came from. He's a bad guy that follows Tintin around.

Why Juvenile Tintin Fan? I guess I've always seen myself as a kid.

I was drunk the night I joined the list and typed in thmthm
instead of tintin...I guess that name would be taken anyway...
Now that I think about it, it can also stand for tintin, haddock, milou...x2

Karaboudjan? Fairly straightforward, I'd say...

Maybe I'm just biased, but that meeting on board the Karaboudjan turns it from just a good series to a great series.

Hence why I've adopted this as my user name.

My favorite villain in the series has always been Mitsuhirato. I know he only appeared in one book, and was working under Rastapopoulos and the Japanese, but I've always felt he made the biggest impact of any one-book main antagonist.
