    Translator's note: hérissons means hedgehogs

    And not, as Google told me thanks to autofill, a mental asylum in Dorset - that's Herrison Hospital and closed in 1992, so there's only one year in which an inmate could have feasibly played Sonic the Hedgehog

    In case you are wondering about the title, it means "Hedgehogs without borders". <edit, I know @Rhesus Positive scooped me, but I was compiling all this info>
    I can't tell you if it's a reference to:
    • Doctors without Borders, the offical name of which is "Médecins Sans Frontières"
    • Metal Gear's: Militaires Sans Frontières
    • Peter Gabriel's classic Games Without Frontiers, the chorus of which includes "Jeux sans frontières", but people often hear that part (sung by Kate Bush) as "She's so popular"

    Such wonderfully backhanded praise.

    I think we must believe that he did so.

    And the experience drove them mad
