My eyes!

In basketball games, the home team wears white, and the visiting team wears a more saturated color.

In tennis, the players wear whatever they please, regardless of their seed in the tournament.

That’s why all of us watching the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters tournament on Tennis Channel are experiencing eye strain.

I believe my eyes are bleeding orange blood, too.

I’m a big fan of candy; no secret about that.

zit jelliesThese jellies are particularly pretty.

Their ‘Tequila sunrise’ coloring is kind of lovely, going from yellow to that deep orange.  And the package reveals that they have a liquid center, which may be tasty.

So you have to wonder what sicko decided to call them…

Really?

That just ruins the whole thing.  And now I’ve ruined it for you, too.

Sorry.

Hope you’ve eaten.

 

 

Cheetos fingers

Cheetos, already the perfect food, is going beyond the puff this Halloween with…

Glow-in-the-Dark Cheetos

While Googling the aforementioned dark delight, I happened upon an even scarier, orange-ier, more artificial — if indeed that is possible — product that has the potential to scare the begeezers out of folks year round…

Look at that color!  Look at that texture!  And if it chips off (chips off, get it?!) —

It’s still cleaner than real Cheetos fingers.

What the flarp?

No, seriously — do you know what ‘flarp’ is?

I encountered this word yesterday for the very first time in an article online.  Thanks to the all-knowing, all-seeing Google, I soon learned that flarp is a liquid-like goo that makes a fart noise when you stick your hand in it.

Brilliant.

Flarp no doubt has a lot of admirers amongst the pre-teen set.  But what makes flarp rise above the farts it attempts to mimic is it smells good.  In fact, it comes in no less than six fruity aromas — orange, lemon, banana, strawberry, pineapple and grape.

You can see how that would beat the real thing every time.

Obviously, flarp entered the scene long after my childhood had passed.  When I was a kid, we were all about Silly Putty.  Silly Putty didn’t make any noise to speak of, and it came in only one color/smell combo — putty grey.

You could copy newspaper print and comics with Silly Putty.  Remember newspapers?  That stuff we used to read before the Internet?

You’re using your flarp right now to make fun of me…aren’t you?

Pfffttt!

Color crime

If you have a few extra pounds on your person, don’t blame yourself.

Blame Benjamin Moore.

A study published in a recent issue of Contract magazine reveals that people who eat in kitchens and dining areas painted red, orange and yellow feel hungrier.  The sunnier hues apparently make food more attractive.

To eat less, we need to surround ourselves with blue light and blue tones…or, at the very least, use blue utensils and dishes to help curb our hunger.

Now they tell me!

My entire house  is a tribute to the colors red, yellow and orange.  They’re even in my bathroom.  I have always loved their energy and fire, but now I guess — deep down – I was really just looking for another excuse to eat.

This revelation has its advantages.  Now, if I gain a pound or two, it’s not my fault; it’s the yellow paint in my kitchen.  And all those red dishes.  Or maybe the orange FLOR tiles in the living room.  Heck, I even have a red leather love seat.

I’m the victim here!
