The story of how the Smurfs got their name is really interesting. The creator fo the comic, Peyo, was having lunch with a friend and could not remember the name for salt. He called it sctroumpfs. This remiinds me of so many great times I’ve had with other artists doing silly things, à flaner. Let’s hope those times return and our governments will allow us to be free again.

The French love Haribo. I was kind of shocked to see so much candy when I first moved here.
