What is the meaning of "smurf".?

This was a post I found AND IT WAS POSTED 4 years ago.
As this year is the 50th Anniversary of the Smurfs I thought I'd share it with you.

Smurf (disambiguation)
Smurf can refer to:
The Smurfs, fictional tiny blue humanoids created by Belgian cartoonist Peyo in 1957 . 
Smurf attack, a type of denial of service (DoS) attack on computer networks
Smurfing (crime), a term related to money laundering .

...........................................................................................................................................
Groups referred to as "Smurfs"
United Nations peacekeeping troops, because of their light blue helmets
Ultramarines in the wargame Warhammer 40,000, a joking reference to their blue armor
The Finnish word smurffit and the Spanish word pitufos, both meaning "Smurfs," are sometimes used as slang for the police
In military slang, "smurffipuku" ("Smurf suit") is a name for the standard blue jogging suit used in the Finnish Defence Forces.
Members of the Finnish BDSM support group SMFR .
The Smurfs (Les Schtroumpfs in French) are a fictional group of small sky blue creatures who live somewhere in the forests of Europe. The Belgian cartoonist Peyo introduced smurfs to the world, but English-speakers perhaps know them best through the animated television series from Hanna-Barbera Productions, The Smurfs. 

I didnt highlight all the words containing SMURF blue, but assume I did

Love you all

  1. Today was told that "Smurfin'" is also a Northern Soul Dance. You live and learn, you live and learn.
