The Crayola Museum aka Craycism

Remember when I was in Pennsylvania for Slappy's wedding? Well when I was there, we went to the crayola museum. The museum had an exhibit of retired crayola colors including the infamous "flesh" color:

The fact that they could call this color "flesh" was deeply offensive to me because my skin is much pinker than that shade of pink. Thankfully, the crayola company acknowledged this and changed the name to "peach":

I won't be happy until they make a crayon called "Jigg's Flesh."

Also, a jelly bean.

They should bring the color name back and make a pack for Halloween that has colors like Flesh, Brains, and Bile. I would buy it... maybe.

I saw on Jeopardy that you can melt down old crayolas and make new crayolas. They call the itty-bitty remnants of crayolas "leftolas".

You are most welcome.

Jamwall and I use the word "peach" to describe something altogether different.
