Throwback Thursdays! Color Blind (July 21, 2005)

More proof that Martha Stewart is the devil incarnate. If that doesn’t look like evil, maniacal laughter in the picture below I don’t know what does.


(July 21, 2005) You know how they say that people see in color but dogs see in black and white? I’m not sure who “they” are, but if this is true, I have a whole other level to add to this theory. A sort of evolutionary ladder of color sensitivity if you will. It goes like this: Dogs see in black and white. Men see the primary colors: red, blue, green, yellow, black, and white. Women see another whole spectrum of colors that are undetectable to men. These colors include: mauve, fuscia, magenta, teal, periwinkle, and many others that I’m sure I haven’t heard of. Once when looking for paint for my house I made the mistake of thinking I was looking at white paint. It turns out it was eggshell. In fact, I was stunned to find out that there are two different colors of teal, teal-blue, and teal-green.

They were pointed out to me and for the life of me I couldn’t tell the difference. If Martha Stewart is responsible for these I’d like to see her sent back to prison. Her and that stupid poncho look she started. Morning, noon, or night now, summer or winter, you see women wearing ponchos. What the hell is a poncho but a blanket with a hole in it. No sleeves, no hood. What a total rip off. The poncho makers are making a fortune by selling half made coats. And of course the ponchos come in most of those colors that men don’t recognize. You know who I actually think is responsible for this other spectrum of colors? The people who make bridesmaids dresses. Have you ever heard of a bridesmaids dress in a normal color? In fact, female camouflage is probably just an entire outfit of fuscia. If a women was dressed head to toe in that color there is no way a man could spot her even in the same room. Just to illustrate my point, I want you to know that I ran spell-check on this and it didn’t recognize the words fuscia, teal, or ponchos.

  1. Hmm does this mean I am male? I must have been living under a rock because I do not know what periwinkle is! LOL

  2. I know all of the colors and I’m not a fan of any of them. Periwinkle is comparable to Lavender which I do like…

    • Is camo your favorite? Or maybe an olive green?

      • Camo is not a favorite but I prefer it over that pink camo. WHO are they hiding from, FLAMINGOS?! Anywho..I digress. My favorite color is Crimson. It’s a really pretty dark red. <3

      • Would you mind telling me what you voted for in my poll..thingy. It won’t tell me other than you voted for other.

      • I voted other and wrote in that you should write whatever you want. Blog for yourself, not for anyone else.

      • Thank you! I appreciate that. Stupid poll! Yeah, I was just having a rough night last night. I was in need of a glass of wine(only 1..that stuff is potent!) and a bar of chocolate(so is this stuff!) but I only had chocolate. haha! I’m feeling a little better, still drained from yesterday. I was just on a ‘is my blog boring?’ kick, and figured I should ask my viewers what they wanted.

        I hate those type of days

  3. Phil as always I want to thank you for helping me start my day with a good laugh! I can’t stand Martha Stewart or her ponchos. lol 🙂
