Smurf gives Paris Hilton a mouthful

Shock scenes at Berlin Xmas market

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

Paris Hilton allegedly got a bit of a mouthful from a Russian dwarf posing as a Smurf when she attempted to "adopt" a pair of the loveable characters at a Berlin Xmas market.

According to the Daily Star, the talented heiress may have been a bit the worse for wear when she spotted the diminutive actors painted blue to promote Haribo’s Smurf sweets.

An eyewitness took up the story: “I don’t know if Paris had been on the mulled wine but when she saw the chaps on the sweet stall, she squealed. We heard her saying: ‘Oh my, real live smurfs. I always wanted one when I was a kid’ before turning to her pal and asking: ‘Can I take them home?’

Hilton then reportedly added: "I didn’t realise that this is where they came from."

The source continued: “She then started talking about adding them to her collection and bent down to talk to them in a babyish voice. I really don’t think she was trying to cause offence. But the actors were really narked off about it all. One of them just flipped and starting shouting at Paris."

The obstreperous Russkie, who "obviously spoke fluent English" then told Ms Hilton "in no uncertain terms" that he was a grown man and she was being "very patronising".

The eyewitness concluded: “It was a bit chilly and they were frazzled after a long day so not prepared to put up with the kooky American; it was quite a scene.” ®
