Unoriginal_Username: I tried working in car sales once, not a fun time, and had a black family come in. After looking and working on everything we sat down to sign the paperwork. Their son looked at me while dad was signing and said.
'know what? You're peach colored. We're black and you're peach'
His dad just about lost it. I on the other hand thought it was funny. Told the kid I had never been called peach before.

Dad seemed to calm down when he realized I wasn't going to be offended by that.

DrBrownCow: Cyber Duck: I'm confused. The article states there are 24 colors representing 40 skin tones and come in boxes of 24 or 32.   Seems like there are 8-16 getting left out. I guess that's better than all but one left out.

That's a lot of nipples.

I guess the Simpsons, martians and Na'vi will be happy to see themselves represented there too.

There's a reason it's so cheap. Defects, quality issues....stores like this don't get the Cadillas, they get the Yugos.


Man, I'd pay top dollar for a gin-u-wine Cadilla; it'd match my Rolox.

What you got against seeing a little pink?

Hoopy Frood: I've never seen anyone whose skin was literally white (or black, for that matter, but that's not in the picture), and the only people I've seen with pink skin had sunburns.

If she is putting makeup on her shoulders and back, she must be as limber as a circus lady.

My guess is 24 of the new skin tone formulations, and doubles of the 8 existing colors.

They plan on a 32 crayon version. But they say that will have extra colors for eyebrows, buttholes and so on...

Eye color and hair color. Not buttholes.

I stand corrected.

But if it's nothing but skintones, about the only thing you can draw are vast multi-ethnic orgies.

The company released the "Colors of the World" line, featuring 24 new crayon colors representing 40 global skin tones.

As long as purple isn't one of the colors. To hell with purple people! Unless they're suffocating, then help 'em.

Why does the color matter when you're putting the crayon in your butthole?

What, no comments about the obvious Crayola-Republican conspiracy?

And you people call yourselves Bloom County fans?

What colour are your lips?


Hm, good point. I guess I don't think about lips when I think about skin. There's probably something in the regular box that's close, though.
 
2020-05-22 8:51:09 PM  
As long as that blue is included it should come close to my Scottish skin.

The classic sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati:

Venus: You know, I'm not really black, I'm sort of cocoa brown. [points to Andy] And you're beige. [points to Johnny Fever] But that dude is white.
