Are You Feeling Blue?

  • Today marks the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Smurfs. According to the son of the creator, “many who grew up watching the Smurfs on TV during the 1980s and 1990s now are parents and want to introduce the Smurfs to their children.”
  • On the negative side of the ledger, we have the death of Carl Karcher, founder of Carl’s Jr., supporter of conservative causes, and creator of some pretty tasty burgers.

There! Betcha you didn’t think you would see Carl’s Jr. and the Smurfs in the same post. It’s been that sort of a day!
