Vitalstatistix and Beefix laugh the incident off. They have to face the fact that they are all equally brave and, after a victory feast, part on good terms. From that point on, the weather becomes rainy and the colours are much darker compared to the rest of the book.
Jokes about the Belgians page 7 are still told in The Netherlands and France. The Roman legionary who goes out for a walk is a caricature of Pierre Tchernia.
Throughout the book the stereotypical Belgian dislike of being patronized, oppressed or looked down upon is satirized. Belgium has been conquered and occupied numerous times in history. True to the geography of the region, the Belgian landscape is depicted as broad and flat.
This is however an exaggeration, since Belgium does have forests and hills in the Ardennes. Throughout the album other famous dishes are mentioned, such as French fries page 25 , Brussels sprouts page 34 , waterzooi page 39 and mussels page The country is known for its bilingual community and problems thereabout.
On page 21 Beefix and Brawnix quarrel about an ox tongue. This is a reference to the nickname the British gave to the Belgians in World War I for the brave defense of their country against the Germans, despite the small size of Belgium in comparison to Germany.
Chief Vitalstatistix is aghast at the idea that his village, which has been the terror of the Romans for years, is now looked upon as relatively harmless. He is further outraged when he hears of Caesar's remarks.
He claims that his villagers are in fact the bravest men of Gaul, and travels to Belgium to prove his point. A reluctant Asterix and Obelix go with him after Getafix tells them not doing so could make the story come to a sticky end. After crossing the border, they encounter a village of Belgians who rely on brute strength and a regular diet of meat and beer to successfully scare off Caesar's troops.
These Belgians are led by two chiefs, Beefix and Brawnix though Brawnix comes across mainly as a second-in-command. To prove that the Gauls are the bravest, Vitalstatistix proposes a competition. The contest consists of raiding and destroying Roman camps on either side of the village.
The Belgians and Gauls destroy the camps, telling the soldiers who they are. By the end they have destroyed an equal number of camps.
Meanwhile the Pirates' ship is wrecked when Obelix throws a boulder catapulted at him too high, causing the Captain to complain, saying he and his men are neutrals. Word is sent to Rome, though the facts are exaggerated, talking about vast hordes of Gauls, a savage pack of hounds, and a mysterious fleet of neutrals.
