Too Weird for Words

The other day, Husband came home from work and said, "There’s a bunch of Smurfs down by the mailbox". Now there’s one you don’t hear every day - LOL Were we under attack by an army of cartoon characters? Would we soon be overrun by Powerpuff Girls and Transformers? Was Sponge Bob Square Pants heading up the driveway wielding an Uzi? I requested he elaborate. "I don’t know what they are. There’s a bunch of these little toys on the ground all around the post." On the ground, eh? Ah! Already mowed down by our anti-animation home security device! (Wipes brow in relief - and they all laughed when we bought it) LOL Well, I had to go see. It was an odd sight. There were three of these:
Click to enlarge. Use back button to return

Lying there like drunken sailors, they were. Once I stopped laughing, I picked them up and brought them back to the house.

I questioned the kids, both of whom disavowed any knowledge whatsoever of ever having seen these or knowing anything about them.

So it remains a mystery.

They’re not Smurfs. They say "Mr. Bubble" on them, but for the life of me I can’t figure out what that weird thing on his side is. LOL

I stuck one on top of my monitor because it makes me giggle every time I look at it.

If they are wanted by the law, let me know. Especially if there’s a reward - LOL

It looks like it has reindeer antlers. I can't figure out what that is on the side either. hmmm... maybe we should google Mr. Bubble and see what's up?

Yep, I agree with ivy. Looks like Mr. Bubble decked out for Christmas. He needs to get over it, tho. Maybe he tied on a few too many on NYE and Santa dumped his drunk self (selves?) off at your place?

It looks like Mr. Bubble has a flower tacked on his side. This doesn't quite fit in with the antlers. Hmm.

LMAO. One year for april fool's hubby and I put a bunch of gnomes on a friend's lawn. We even made a sign and stuck it on the head gnome that said "We're watching you."

He couldn't figure out who did it until we fessed up. It was a lot of fun.

I didn't know they made Mr. Bubble toys. In fact I didn't even realize Mr. Bubble was still around.

Are you sure it isn't a Scrubbing Bubble. I mean, you might be able to put it to work!

I looked at this yesterday and had no clue, but today I think I have it figured out. It's his hand holding a ring of jingle bells :)
