Smurfs (bizarre) Answered

When I take a holiday in Wales we always listen to "The Smurfs" (Father Abraham in Smurfland) - it's a tradition. Hence the phrase "The Smurfs have finished" meaning "Someone change the record".

If you've not been exposed to this yet, see here:


Then there's "Smurfing beer" - quote: "you don't get drunk and it isn't dear" (It isn't beer)

The Pinoccio song questions - quote "Pinoccio, Pinoccio, why are you made of wood?"
www.youtube.com/watch

The annoying but up-beat Dippety-Do song:

Looking at the album cover I wonder exactly what happens when the floating-head of Father Abraham appears in Smurfland - do they panic and start singing lest he smite them? (Notice the bad image job where the top of a mushroom-house has been cropped off on the right)

I've always heard it as "smokey-hole", but we know better recently.
There's one that starts "Wh----y do people have to fight..." coming around to "De people's vorld is so full of hate, it has to change, before it is too late. Dey shoot viz guns, create so much fear, maybe it will be better by next year?"
That's optimism for ya..?

Your are very brave to share this tradition of yours. Words sort of escape me here but certain acronyms don't.

Well as I said, it's a tradition. We've got Chas & Dave down there too...

Yes, but what language are they speaking?   I can't understand a word they're saying :-)

Yes, that is much clearer, and the song is a little bit close to home as it were (sounds like I married the one they were talking about ;-)

That wasn't intentional, but I was split between that and the 80's novelty hit Snooker Loopy, but that's only really of interest if you used to watch snooker back then...

I have recollections of a string of previous comments somewhere, but I'd forgotten about them.

My friends have a long-standing tradition of calling anything small and/or blue (preferably both) a smurf.

I always thought it was funny that the Panamanian police with riot trucks with the water cannons were called smurfs.
