le gorille a bonne mine

Discovered something about Spirou again!

In the comic ‘Vacances sans histoires’ (Uneventful Holidays) in the album 'Le gorille a bonne mine’ (Gorilla’s in Good Shape) by Franquin, a character named Ibn-ma-zoud is an Arabic Sheikh. What I didn’t know before was that his name comes from the Flemish word 'mazout’, meaning fuel oil. And the Sheikh, stereotypely, probably makes money with oil.
