UNICEF, the United Nations Children's Fund, has produced a cartoon ad in Belgium dipicting Smurfs being blown to bits by a bombing raid. The point is to shock people into donating money to UNICEF:
It is intended as the keystone of a fund-raising drive by Unicef's Belgian arm, to raise £70,000 for the rehabilitation of former child soldiers in Burundi.Now, I am all for blowing up Smurfs, and stuff, but let me ask one question:
If the UN is so concerned about children being killed, why aren't they doing anything about Darfur?
Eff the UN. Or, should I say, "Smurf the Smurfing United Nations".
