This is brilliant. I smell the next Drew McCourt promotional giveaway idea...perhaps Smurf lipstick?

Amen on the brilliance. Note that Smurfs are the former color of Dodger Stadium's outfield walls.

Also, motion to rename Alyssa Milano "Smurfette."

Sax, you will be interested in knowing that the Smurfs are huge in China. Perhaps you could use the Smurfs to break SoSG into the Middle Kingdoms market.
