"Darfaydar"? It took a long while to figure out what Jessie J was talking about in this article. I weep for the future.
Simon Love, London

So Airbus estimates it has sold more than 700 A320neo jets so far. Now, I could understand, if for example, Mrs Miggins had estimated that she had sold more than 700 pies, but surely, in such a safety critical industry, a manufacturer should be able to accurately count its crate sales.
James Bigglesworth, Crepy, France

"...could the blue creatures offer a model for society?" I hope not. There was only one smurfette. How that all worked out has been a source of much debate through many people's growing years.
Sarah, Basel, Switzerland

Of course we should model society on the Smurfs. I've been telling people that until I'm blue in the face.
Rob Falconer, Llandough, Wales

Re: Do Smurfs provide a model for a good society? Won't we get cold not wearing any tops? Especially in our climate. Not to mention UV damage to the skin over the summer.

Lewis (Wednesday's Letters), I'm also guessing the penguin is male. He is on Peka Peka beach. Sounds like nominative determinism, fnaar fnaar!
Phil Warne, Nelson, NZ

Surely I can't be the first to point to the 6'4" Basil Long (Thursday's letters) and cry nominative determinism?
Katherine, Sydney, Australia
