"Smurfing" the Internet

I was doing a little surfing today and decided to look up websites devoted to ex-Jehovah's Witnesses. I found an interesting little bit of information along my travels.

Jehovah's Witnesses are scared to death of Smurfs. Yes, that's right. I'm talking about the little blue creatures who are cute and run around "smurfing" things.

Apparently in the JW world, rumors abound of Smurf dolls and Smurf wallpaper coming to life and causing mischief.

I'm not making this up! I did a Bing search and came up with a huge list of JW's and their horror stories about Smurfs!

So apparently, if you're a JW, no TV, dolls, wallpaper, t-shirts, etc. having anything to do with Smurfs. You can even get exed from the community if you fail to comply!

So when you see the JW's coming down the street to smurf on your door, put on the bluest, smurfiest t-shirt you have and watch them smurf away in horror!

I didn't know this, but apparently this summer a Smurf movie is coming out:

I am feeling very smurfy today. I think I will smurf home and smurf some smurfs on my smurf. After smurfing some smurfs, I will then eat dinner with the wife and kidlet and then watch some smurfs on TV. how Smurfy!

I used to be a JW, and it wasn't until I got out of the organization that I heard about all the smurfobia. I used to love them as a kid!

Just wanted to say too, that I'm glad you found your way out of your brainwashing as well. Its feels so good to be on this side of faith/religion.
