Charlie don't Smurf…

I thought that the Hip-Hop Smurf that K-Mart sells was pretty poor, and an indication that perhaps things had gone too far.
I thought that the Pimp Smurf that my wife purchased for me was kind of funny, but still not in the spirit of the Smurfs.
Even I would never have advocated bombing the poor little beggars , though.
That’s just… disturbing. On all sorts of levels. And this is from someone who gleefully used to play Smurf Hunt, an Amiga game that put you in the role of a shotgun-equipped wolf loose in the Smurf village.
