Dennis to stop being a menace, may marry
Dennis the Menace, created by cartoonist Hank Ketcham, will no longer be the most enduringly irresistible imp in the world.
Dennis the Menace first began to plague his next-door neighbor Mr Wilson in 1950 on the pages of America's newspapers. Today, the comic appears in more than 1,000 newspapers in 48 countries and in 19 languages.
Dennis told reporters in Haiti, where he shifted recently due to ‘political compulsion,’ that he had to get away from all the sex and violence that was so rampant in the United States of America and had thus moved to one of the most peaceful countries.
He said he would stop being a menace, despite still having Mr Wilson as his neighbor in Haiti.
Mr Wilson welcomed the development and has decided to host a tea party at his home as a goodwill gesture.
Dennis, he said, was welcome to enter his home at anytime of the day or night, and do whatever he wanted.
Dennis said his change of heart came after he saw the Mel Gibson movie The Passion of the Christ.
Family sources said Dennis was contemplating marrying his longtime girlfriend Margaret Wade.
