Behold the smurf

Where but here on The Moon does one encounter such a wide array of topics? The answer is nowhere. So let us pivot from the previous topic, the End of Civilization, to the fun one of smurfs.

But hold your horses!

An online inquiry reveals many definitions of smurf. I was shocked, and maybe you will be too. First, there is the “Belgian comic franchise centered on a fictional colony of small, blue, humanoid creatures who live in mushroom-shaped houses in the forest.”

But in online gaming, a smurf is an experienced player who uses a new account to deceive other players into thinking he’s a noob (newbie). A smurf can also be a money launderer who seeks to evade scrutiny from government agencies by breaking up large transactions.

And there is the latest of my child bride’s crochet art, the smurf you see in the photo. Keep in mind that her work is done from scratch. There are no molds, etc. It all begins and ends with crochet needles. And numerous hours of labor. Her handiwork is for sale. International shipping available.
