"Physics (and Smurf Stomping?) is My Business"

Julius Sumner Miller was my off-again on-again physics teacher growing up, and, while I have no proof of this and am not going to look it up for fear of being wrong (Mr. Miller would be ashamed), I hypothesize that he was the root of the character Gargamel on everyone's favorite Peyo import, The Smurfs. Okay, ever the empiricist, I looked it up. I can't find any evidence to support that hypothesis at all... but I've never seen the two in a room at the same time. A conspiracy theory is born.
