Those were the days when I read `The Dandy`. It`s said that your schooldays are the happiest days of your life.
Extract from :-
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desperate_Dan

"Desperate Dan is a wild west character in the British comic The Dandy. He made his appearance in the first issue, which was dated 4th December 1937. He is apparently the world's strongest man, able to lift a cow with one hand."
Have you `phoned them, Mick, to mention this free publicity? You may get free cow pies for life, LOL.
