Good evening, Phil O’Really here. In the race for the presidency, Brainy Smurf has pressured Papa Smurf to release the contents of his potions to the public in an earlier debate. Here’s the clip. (Lowers head slightly while waiting for clip to play.)
Brainy Smurf: Why don’t you just release them, Papa Smurf? What’s so secret about them?
Papa Smurf: It’s not that they’re secret. Some of the ingredients of the potions are very dangerous and should not be handled by inexperienced hands. I have over one hundred years experience dealing with these potions.
Brainy Smurf: Oh, so you’re dealing potions that are illegal?
Papa Smurf: Uh, uh, no, that’s not what I said! I said “dealing with”. There’s nothing wrong with the ingredients I work with.
Brainy Smurf: Well, if there’s nothing wrong with them, why can’t the public see them?
Papa Smurf: Brainy, will you stop this ridiculousness?
Smurfette: Oh, Mr. Moderator?
Moderator: Yes, Smurfette?
Smurfette: I haven’t had a chance to say anything in this discussion.
Moderator: Go ahead, Smurfette.
Smurfette: Perhaps if we all took a whiff of my aromatherapy candle, we would feel better.
And there you have it. A few hours later, Papa Smurf announced that he will be releasing a potion for the common cold to the public tomorrow. In the meantime, take a look at these headlines.
