Dear Beano


Dear Birthday Beano,

I am decoupaging my father in laws old trunk into a toy box for the girls covered in your fabulous comic. I bought random selection of 17 on eBay from 1981 1982 and 1983. They arrived in the post today, to my complete surprise there was one from the exact day I was born!!! Given you were only produced once a week on a Thursday, then the odds of me getting a Beano out of the 17 I received from the exact date of my birth were slim (I had no idea I was born on a Thursday or the Beano was issued on a Thursday) and to get this treat on today of all days made a very hard day (first anniversary of my fathers death) a special day. I don’t really believe in ghosts but I’m comforted by pretending it’s a sign from Dad.

Thankyou Birthday Beano. You shall occupy pride of place on my daughters’ new toy box.

Love LadyMinnieTheMinxCurd

    Long Live The Beano. I grew up on a solid diet of The Beano and it taught me that my sense of mischievousness and naughtiness was something to be quite proud of.

  3. Just because its got the day & date this doesn’t actually mean you were born on a Thursday. I’ve just bought one for my sons 21st dated 2 days before he was born, although he was born on a Monday the publishing date/day would of meant he was born on a sat?
