Am I the only one who read that headline in Angus Scrimm's voice?

And young cowboys seeking to enhance their (um-hum) "package" are encouraged to drop a sizeable Idaho Spud in their drawers.

Be advised to put it in the front side, though.

Hmm, it's everywhere, just like 'potato brain'.

Brown was a popular fashion for a hot second in the early 2000s, not surprising to see it back.  My clothes I still have from my 20s are making me look hip and with it again.

// or with it

I would pay $4.62 for that ensemble, and only use five items at most, if those are men's, I can't quite tell.

Didn't we used to call that color "taupe" or "camel"?

I told a version of that joke to a coworker. His punk band now has a warmup song they call Potatoes Up Front.

That shade is called dung sek in Korean -- literally 'shiat color'.

Camel is closer than taupe.  Taupe has gray undertones or some people see it as a purple undertone.

Any flat shade is a neutral and needs another color to enhance it.  A brown with golden undertones is more flattering than potato brown.  Even a brown with black undertones, like hickory is more flattering than flat potato brown.

Potato Brown is the main character in my series of kid detective stories. Each short story asks if the reader also has no idea what crime has been committed, let alone if the restaurant customer is lying because lobsters aren't red until they're cooked.

You're right.  Better stand back and let me take care of her until she bulks up enough for you

I've been to Grand Theft Auto's chop shop to know that this is, by far, the cheapest shade of paint money can buy. Because it is incredibly ugly.

I can pull it off.
I mean, give me a brown sweater and I look good in it. Black is even better.

Not a brown suit though. Too flat, uninteresting/unlively.

Light brown works great if you have a tan going, anything other than pasty white.

'Cept deep blue black - like highlander African black; or the dark red-brown you get with serious Indio blood.  Unless it's underlain with another color that complements the skin tone anyway.  But anything tween white dude with a tan and coffee, sure.

Yeah, one of my young students in Korea was telling me about his dog. I asked him what color it was, and he said, in English, 'shiat color.' I thought he was joking and started to laugh. A Korean teacher explained to him that shiat was a bad word in English and that he shouldn't say it. He then turned to me, perplexed, and asked what that color was called in English. I said 'brown.' He argued with me. 'No, no, it's not the same.'
