    Black, flesh, tighty whitey (all with skid marks) or commando, it makes no difference. Move along folks, nothing to see here.

    The closest I could compare the Crayola crayons color to their flesh is “banana mania”. What was called flesh back in 1962, is now called peach.

    Yeah, good one from Jerry…..
    though a line about glass houses does come to mind.

    Mikie…. And whatever there would have been to see, I didn’t want to see it anyway.

    Ryan…. and now you can even get these….
    at first I found them amusing and overly P.C…..
    but I’ve come to appreciate how glad 75% of the world is to have a choice.

    Yes, I know… most of the colors have been available in other sets….
    and none are labelled “flesh”
    but to have this collection obviously meant for skin tones makes many more children feel included.

    OOOOOO my eyes, my eyes…..
    I was wondering how Jerry hurt his eye Did he poke it when he drew back the dart and stick it with the dart? That’s what he gets for trying to get to close when aiming..
    I like the comment about his wig also.

    Ya gotta wonder what kind of world Julie Larson lives in to know characters like these.

    I think they’re everywhere. Smug, low-level, not too bright people living in the older ‘burbs who are content with what they’ve got. They live a smug low-key life watching TV and making inane remarks. Not that there are whole neighborhoods full of them, but enough so they make their presence known when you eavesdrop on them in public.

    I noticed there weren’t any green ones, Susan. Now the Martian children are going to feel left out.

    Am I the only one disturbed that Jerry even knows what kind of underwear that Burl wears? Pass the brain bleach, please.

    @Dave Hussell

    They do go to the gym all the time, so it doesn’t surprise me he knows what Burl wears for underpants. In fact they go to cheap gyms so I suppose they have gang showers and don’t think anything of it. After all, tis age group as boys grew up with gang showers in school.

    I have an old set of lawn darts Jerry and the boys might enjoy.

    Jerry’s a schmuck, but to his credit, he’s a sharper tack than any of the rest of that bunch. Too bad they’re usually too dumb to get the point of his barbs.

    ….and if he’d shave off the ‘stache and lose that asinine hairpiece and top his head with a baseball cap, he’d look like Bazooka Joe. Oh, and a very clean-looking, spotless white tee-shirt….(!!!!?!!??) oh, heck, never mind! THAT’S asking too much from the guy!!

    Susan! Marg! I’m almost out of Brain Bleach! I used up most of my remaining supply after seeing Jer’s comment about Burl’s skivvies! GAH! I’m gonna have to double my order AGAIN!

    Purple…. it’s on the way!

    Dave…. Well, I did say “more”, not “all” children…
    but yeah, the Crayola company hasn’t caught up with the intergalactic market…

    And don’t they also need blue for all those Indigo Children?
    White for mime and clown children?
    Various greys for android babies and maybe even purple for….
    I dunno… whoever’s purple.

    There should be a 64-color Multicultural, International, Intergalactic, box.
