Smurf for all!!!

Schtroumpf: the legends tells us that the name was invented by Peyo, the father of those blue gnomish creatures as he couldn't find the appropriate word to ask the salt at a dinner table... ("passe-moi le... euh... schtroumpf...")

Anyway, 50 years after their first appearance in "La flûte à six schtroumpfs" an adventure of Johan et Pirlouït (another serie by the same author), the Smurfs, and their utopian communist society (yes, the sig smurf is Karl Marx) their are still immensely popular by small (and bigger ;-) kids... (even a full 3d film is programmed for the years to come, let's hope it respects the spirit of the serie and that it will not be too commercialized)

So to celebrate their 50th anniversary there is a cool exhibit in the Comics strip museum till the 16th of november... (and it's also the ooportunity to visit this wonderful Art Nouveau buildin)

And I cannot resist to offer you a picture of an iconoclastic collector's relic: the second issue of "Belge, européen et vulgaire" the magazine of the anarchist Jan Bucquoy (yes, him again!) wich speaks (among other interesting themes) of the sexual life of the smurfs!

About love...

"I hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all."

Alfred Lord Tennyson, "In Memoriam", 1850

For my part I would just add that each time I've tried to fight against myself, I simply lost...

Dimsum vobis amat
