What the Three Musketeers did next

Aramis went into the scent / beauty business and Porthos became the butt of lots of bad French jokes (1) but Athos?:

He moved to Peru to grow asparagus. 

Incidentally, while they are termed musketeers, I've never seen any of them armed with anything more lethal than a sword. 

(1).  Portuguese folk are sometimes called Portos over yonder.  Google blague portugais for some less than brilliantly sophisticated humour.


  1. Asparagus, eh? Haven't had that for decades. Athos is falling down on the job.
