Smurf City, here we come!
Blog Guy, can you please help settle a bet with my haberdasher’s manicurist?
Again with the bets and the random occupations? What’s this one about?
Actually, she’s absolutely right. Sony chose a little village in southern Spain for the world premiere of their new movie, “The Smurfs 3D,” and they painted the whole shebang blue.
Painted the whole shebang, huh? Is that all they did?
That isn’t quite clear. I’ve heard reports of Sony thugs going around and forcibly painting the villagers blue, as well,
You mean like Greedy Smurf and Lazy Smurf?
Yes, and Wino Smurf, Incontinent Smurf, Facial Warts Smurf, Floozy Smurf, and so on.
Well, you know how cartoon characters only have three fingers and a thumb? There are some very disturbing rumors about how that’s being handled…
