So I continued researching the real life Blue People.
Remember when I asked if you believe if the Smurfs were real? Well meet the self proclaimed Papa Smurf.
Paul Karason, aka Papa Smurf was born a fair-skinned, freckled boy with reddish blond hair. But later, he developed skin with a bluish tinge against his shock of white hair, the result of a rare medical syndrome known as argyria or silver poisoning from dietary supplements.
Karason said the blue tinge had started more than a decade before that when he saw an ad in a new-age magazine promising health and rejuvenation through colloidal silver. He drank about 10 ounces a day of the home-brew that he dissolved in water.
Sadly, he passed away in 2013.
This happened after being treated for pneumonia at a Washington hospital after having suffered a heart attack. He'd also previously had a severe stroke. He was 62.
