I was shocked the other day to discover a toy store selling a play mat that advertised itself as being ‘anti-smurf’.
It disappointed me.
I have no idea what they have against smurfs. I get that they were kinda odd, but quite frankly this sort of behaviour struck me as incredibly blue-ist.
I was on the verge of marching up to the counter and demanding an explanation from the scared-looking teenage boy when I took a second look at the cover.
Smudge. Anti-smudge play mat.
So you can all feel free to invite the local smurfs around to play.
Just don’t invite any smudges.
