And Here I Thought UNICEF Wanted to Help Children

But instead, they committed Smurf genocide.


Putting aside the very unsmurfy genocide for a brief moment, you just know Gargamel is just pissed off right now. UNICEF---freakin' UNICEF---succeeded where he's failed too many times to count. He's probably drunk in his cottage right now, and is trying to come up with fun and interesting ways of torturing the cat.

Can I just say this REALLY pisses me off?

Where does UNICEF get off, huh? They murder and maim a beloved icon from my childhood, and this is supposed to get me to want to donate? Screw that! That is so freakin' unlikely now, I can't even begin to express it. What's next? Strawberry Shortcake and Huckleberry Finn become landmine victims on their way to Porcupine Peak? Barbie gets gang-raped in her Malibu beach house? Or perhaps, the Bratz girls will get sold as sex slaves to unsavory UN peacekeepers.

This is disgusting. It is desperate, reaching, and wholly without merit. I find the entire thing reprehensible.

Blech! What some people won't do to get attention.

Curiously, that's not the first time we've seen Smurfette at less than her best.

Glenn Beck had the same thoughts as you and did another blurb on the smurfs. I don't know if it is on his website or not. VERY funny. Christi

Uh gee....not to put too fine a point on it....but did some of you folks MISS the entire intent of the UNICEF use of Smurfs? The campaign is DESIGNED to get YOU to REACT to the problem of war and specifically, CHILDREN in war. Yes, the images of our beloved Smurfs being subjected to so cruel a fate DOES upset us, and rightly so. Perhaps if YOU can now SEE the same fate happening to so many REAL children, you might be induced to:
1.) Question the "neccessity excuses" to go to war.
2.) Question the leadership ability of those who continually tell us we must sacrifice the lives of our children, and the children of others, so we can "maintain our way of life".
3.) Understand that we are ALL children of someone, and that none of us are "disposable".
If the campaign can accomplish that...then maybe it has accomplished its goal.

And all that preaching from a person with the email address, "love2torture@yahoo.com"?

One must really love the age of post-modernism if for no other reason than that it really does produce some first class absurdism.

love2torture? Torture what, puppies? His own nipples? Hell, this campaign doesn't work primarily because most sane people get a chuckle out of seeing the damn blue menaces in a most un-smurfy predicament. ;p
