Asterix is a comics character. Asterisk (*) is a PBX. Asterix is 
s/ks$/x/ to Asterisk, as this is the first character used for for 
comments. The second character is a dagger, or an obelisk (†), and thus 
Asterix' sidekick is Obelix.

Or a different example:

cat <<EOF >article.tex
  \title{The\thanks{Asterisk} Title\thanks{Obelisk}}

pdflatex article.tex
xpdf article.pdf
