A Farewell to Smurfs?

I'm trying to do something with a Papa Smurf/Papa Hemingway pun here, but unfortunately coming up short. This sounds disarmingly intense, which, I guess, is the point. (Thanks again, JP.)

When I first read this post I thought "what, did papa smurf take his shotgun to his head in Idaho?"

Yeah, I suppose I could have come up with a much better/more obvious war-torn village reference, but I was reeeally hoping I was going to strike gold with the Papa pun. I hang my head in shame.

to be fair, once I read the article to which you linked, it made perfect sense.

I didn't need to read the article. "A Farewell to Smurfs" was one of Hemingway's finest efforts, second only to "Men Without Muppets".

I've always been partial to "Snorks Like White Elephants" myself....
