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)
Well, I had to go see. It was an odd sight. There were three of these:

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
