Alternate Officers - Leo Sayer

This is a mess of a deleted scene. It was re-shot because it started raining.  One of the few that weren't reshot because the prior scene was terrible and only because of weather.

The Politics of the Smurfs

The Smurfs are a working communist society. This is the popular theory that shall be examined.

Karl Marx and Papa Smurf are one in the same

Let’s start with the Smurf clothing. Papa Smurf has the classic white beard much like the founder of socialism Karl Marx. He’s dressed in red (a popular color associated with communist Russia). All the other Smurfs wear the same colored clothing with the exception of Grandpa Smurf who is dressed in yellow (a popular color associated with communist China) and some children who will be discussed later. The majority have a communist uniform that represses anything other than their government defined identity. Such as Handy Smurf who has a work apron or Brainy Smurf who has stereotypical “Smart Guy” glasses. Smurf’s are not encouraged to go against their assigned positions in life.

Jokey sending letter bombs.  He personally inspired Ted Kaczynski.

Art is allowed but shunned in Smurf society. Jokey Smurf is the resident entertainment in Smurf society and is constantly ridiculed for his antics. Antics he’s required to commit by the societal rules placed on him. Free thinking is shunned by the masses such as the case with Brainy Smurf. His know-it-all ideas are discouraged, only the elder Papa Smurf has any say on the rules of Smurf Society.

Brainy accepting his societal label with pride.

Each Smurf has an assigned task in society, Handy is in construction, Reporter spews the words of Papa Smurf (government controlled news), Baker cooks, Lazy gets to sleep all day (probably because he’s the son of a bureaucrat), Tailor works on clothes, etc. They are assigned tasks based on their names. Their names are given to them by Papa Smurf, the head of Smurf Village, the lead government official. It’s a typical communist ideal, “each according to his ability, each according to his need” way of life.

Gargamel showing his villainous true colors as propagated by a left wing evil European media. 

Gargamel is a big bad capitalist that wants to melt the Smurfs down and turn them into gold. This is a direct correlation with how communist would describe the Cold War. A communist believed the United States wanted to launch nuclear weapons against Communist Russia to attain military and economic superiority.

Communist united under one regime.

The people that were friendly with the Smurfs were communist sympathizers that want to adopt the Smurf way of life but cannot because of their archaic government structures.

A Smurf with no clue what to do with currency.  Perhaps he will turn it over to the local authorities so they can bask in their wealth while he continues to live his impoverished lifestyle. 

There appears to be no currency in Smurf Village. Everyone works but no one receives any pay. Nor do they ever pay anyone for any goods or services received. Brainy tried in institute an economic structure into the Village and it conveniently caused chaos! It seems that everything is free.

Sylvester Stallone may have ended the Cold War with Rocky IV but it was David Hasselhoff who singlehandedly brought down the Berlin Wall.  Unfortunately his mark in history was at the cost of a part in the Smurf movie.  He was blacklisted for being an icon of freedom to the German population..
Some of you are wondering about later episodes featuring the children Slouchy, Snappy, Nat, and Sassette Smurf. They do not fit the typical early Smurf archetypes. They have modern clothes, free spirited ideas and other characteristic traits that are not common with the older Smurfs. These Smurfs represent the fall of the Berlin Wall. Notice how they cause all their own problems and constantly got into trouble? The majority of prior Smurf dilemmas were because they were victims of circumstance or got in over their head while trying to help a commie sympathizer. These newer younger Smurfs defy authority. They are showing the audience how the fall of communism will lead to anarchy. The only saving grace for the young Smurfs who disregard the rules are when the wise old community regime of Papa Smurf flies in to save the day and show them the error of their free thinking capitalistic ways.

Emo Freak Smurf!

This commie show is the main reason for whiny Emo freaks! It pumped nothing but communist propaganda into the minds of young children in the hopes they would vote for politicians that shared the ideas that were perpetuated by their commie icon Papa Smurf every Saturday morning. Do not let your children watch this program. It’s our opinion that it can be far more damaging to their psyche than a Quincy marathon.

How come there is no Grandma Smurf?
Grandpa had her killed for promoting laissez-faire.

A picture of our writer Dave, the man who claims to be a Comic Con outsider at a video game competition.

In October of 2013, I attended my first ComicCon thanks to the kind donation of a spare press pass. Ultimately, I am probably the last person who should attend these events. I don’t follow any specific brand of science-fiction/comic/geek-icon. That’s not me feeling superior; I admire these attendees’ dedication to their favorite characters and intellectual properties. However, it wasn’t a complete waste of time – I learned quite a bit swimming through the costumed hoard.  For example:

Two girls with unregistered firearms

Prior to entering, I was given a nifty little souvenir book with a handy grid highlighting all the panels taking place during the course of the event with many of the more interesting ones overlapping with each other. Hard decisions would have to be made if I had the patience to sit in any of them. Luckily, I did not.

He wasn't here for the convention.  This is his normal outfit.

The younger fans attend these events in swarms and they’re ready to set up a makeshift shanty wherever I happen to need to be. The cell-phone charging stations are popular spots. Electricity was like water to the parched and they made sure they weren’t removing themselves from their encampment. But besides that, I was constantly tripping over some free-spirited twentysomethings in full costume sitting on the floor gleefully fingering their Magic decks.

Not endorsed by Nintendo of America
My time spent at CC coincided with the release of Pokemon X and Y for the Nintendo 3DS. And apparently the line for those games stretched way back out the door of the Jacob Javits and, likely, to Penn Station.  Good luck breaking through that queue.  My right to ingress and egress was not keeping them from collecting them all, all over again.

These are truly tourist who believe they can find stolen bike in NYC

A humongous amount of space packed to the gills with people dressed as Spidermen, Hulks and Chells is the perfect setting for losing your CC partner. Forget about any meeting places. You’ll never get to the rendezvous point in time before your partner’s boredom to get the upper hand or something interesting lures him or her away.  You can try calling, but your phone is probably long dead from all the pictures and tweeting and you’re not ‘in’ good enough with the denizens of the aforementioned charge stations.

That hug wasn't free. The Kitty wasn't the only thing saying hello either.

Mattel had their own little booth and were selling replica Hover Boards as seen in the enjoyable but still needless-complicated Back to the Future II. It was priced at a few hundred dollars and I’m assuming it doesn’t actually hover. “Who would purchase that?”, I thought to myself. And, of course, I see a couple of grown men carrying around those pricy boxes moments later. Ah, to have disposable income…

Moments later some Mortal Kombat cosplayers swooped in and ripped their hearts of of their chest.

It’s bittersweet to see that no matter how “geeky” or “esoteric” one’s obsession may seem to outsiders, there are plenty of like-minded individuals who share the same enthusiasm. For example: male fans of “My Little Pony” in my day and age would be one-way ticket to a lifetime of mockery and torture. Nowadays, they have plenty of back-up and could make short work of any smart-mouthed detractor. But that’s just one of literally hundreds of groups anyone could comfortably belong. It’s inspiring to see that the hobby looked-down upon back when I was growing up has grown legs and become a behemoth, unaffected by the out-of-touch geezers who still think pejoratively calling someone a dork, geek or nerd is at all effective in breaking the spirit of these devotees.
And I am jealous. Though I was never as invested in the comics or science-fiction, I wouldn’t have minded hanging with these people, dressing in an elaborate costumes, cackling in excitement with every announcement of a new movie, book, video game, TV show or what-have-you. From what I saw of them, observing from the outside, they never stopped having the time of their lives.
