Biggest gathering of Smurfs

Biggest gathering of smurfs - According to organisers of the Landerneau carnival about 3,500 Smurfs have gathered in Brittany. The gathering means that the world record for the largest gathering of Smurfs has been beaten. 

The teams of the Carnival launched the challenge to exceed the record held so far by a city in Germany, which had managed last year to gather 2,762 Smurfs.

Did you know? The Smurfs were invented as a result of a silly conversation over dinner. Pierre Culliford, a Belgian artist known as Peyo, was dining with a friend when he had one of those momentary lapses of vocabulary “ he couldn't remember the word for "salt"and asked his friend to pass the "schtroumpf."Mocking him, his friend responded with, "Here's the schtroumpf. When you are done schtroumpfing, schtroumpf it back."This sparked an idea, and "les Schtroumpfs" were born in comic strip form shortly thereafter.

The Smurfs are specifically "three apples" tall.

The answer to the age-old question "What color does a Smurf turn when it's choking?" is purple.
