* ''ComicBook/GastonLagaffe'': Lebrac throws a bottle of termites at Gaston's {{Xenophone}} over the weekend. On Monday morning, doors collapse, desks crumble to dust, pencils are gone... Gaston quickly puts two and two together and goes to check on his instrument... which is sitting untouched by the termites.
