From which I gather the filetests don't take a default "$_".

Well if you read "perldoc -f -X" you'll see it says:

    -X FILEHANDLE
    -X EXPR
    -X DIRHANDLE
    -X      A file test, where X is one of the letters listed below.  This unary
            operator takes one argument, either a filename, a filehandle, or a
            dirhandle, and tests the associated file to see if something is true
            about it.  If the argument is omitted, tests $_, except for "-t", which
            tests STDIN.  Unless otherwise documented, it returns 1 for true
            and '' for false, or the undefined value if the file doesn't exist.  Despite
            the funny names, precedence is the same as any other named unary operator.

[Eily]: and since his name is a modified version of astérisque (asterisk), which is a typographical symbol, I think it's even funnier that he would lose a diacritic
[Eily]: the pun doesn't work so well with "he lost a diacritic" though :P
[LanX]: Obelix might offer to find it again ...
[LanX]: not much to translate anyway since Goscinny died
[Eily]: https://en. wikipedia.org/ wiki/List_of_Aster ix_characters some of the names were changed to include a new pun
[LanX]: sure some are even funnier now
[LanX]: some lost because they were not translated like Epidemais
[LanX]: some of the english names are funny too
