Pass me the Awesome

In honor of their fiftieth anniversary, Crayola gave kids the opportunity to rename some of the colors in their big 64 box (the one with the sharpener in the back!).

Ready to vomit? Here they are...

Yellow is now Super Happy.
Orange has been renamed Fun in the Sun.
Green isn't green anymore; call it Giving Tree.
Brown? Bear hug.
Dust Pink shall henceforth be called Awesome!
Blue...Happy Ever After.
Hot pink is Famous. That's hot.
Purple will now only answer to Best Friends.

Something about this makes me want to kick a puppy.


  1. Dude. I want to SPEW. (Maybe THAT could be the name for one of their colors!)

  2. HAHAHAHA I love the Best Friends one. Come on now. What ever happened to just plain old purple? So now when I start teaching my kids their colors I should tell them that no honey, that's not purple, that's Best Friends. Get it right!

    Can you color me stooopid?

  3. Out of the mouths of babes.

  4. Holy crap. Crayola must be hard up for some PR eh? lol.

    This is why kids are not allowed to name things. Otherwise they'd have little bothers and sisters with names like "Doody-head" or "Really Cool".

  5. Regarding the kicking of puppies....

    I am strongly opposed to animal cruelty of any kind. However, in this case, I'll pretend I didn't see you.

  6. As IF. Clearly a PR move because we all know that kids would name the colors things like:
    butt crack blue, booger green and fart. WE ALL KNOW THIS TO BE TRUE. BTW, I so wish SMP would fly you out to take my picture.

  7. I just threw up a little in my mouth. I didn't look, but I suspect it was Giving Tree in color.

  8. One, I always coveted the big box of Crayolas with a sharpener.

    Two, why go messing with good things? Sheesh.


Brilliant observations:
