Kill The Smurfs

The people of Belgium have been left reeling by the first adult-only episode of the Smurfs, in which the blue-skinned cartoon characters’ village is annihilated by warplanes.

The short but chilling film is the work of Unicef, the United Nations Children’s Fund, and is to be broadcast on national television next week as a campaign advertisement.

It couldn’t happen to bluer people, with the possible exception of the sneetches.

From the Telegraph, “Unicef bombs the Smurfs in fund-raising campaign for ex-child soldiers,” via It’s All About Control.

    I’m forced by the librarian and the dad in me to point out that the Sneetches are yellow. We now return you to your regularly scheduled state of non-pedantry.
