Revealed: The Menace that Mashed Madonna!

Dennis and Madonna



The Beano‘s Dennis the Menace was the cause of Madonna‘s fall from the stage at the Brit Awards, DC Thomson has revealed, joining in with the fun at the expense of a shell-shocked Madge, after her swift decent down the stairs.

The fail that heard the nation gasp this week has been the subject of many a hilarious meme, as videos of Madonna’s stage diving antics find themselves playing on repeat and cartoons in the national press.

As was widely reported, the veteran material girl fell foul of her own costume at Wednesday night’s Brit Awards when she was unceremoniously tugged down a flight of stairs.

After a moment’s stunned silence, the world responded the only way it knew how, with a barrage of internet memes, featuring wrestlers, Toy Story and even Gerard Butler’s King Leonidas from the film, 300.

Now, The Beano has weighed in on the hilarity, with its own take on the evening’s proceedings in two cartoons that featured in the Daily Mail revealing Dennis the Menace as the source of the gaff, with a firm grasp on the pop-star’s cape!
