You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means

ice cream cone boxBack in Quote of the Day 2 we noted how BigE could easily be bought by chocolate milk.

Tonight I thought I would up the battle with a chocolate ice cream cone. Hey it's 6:45, about 30'c and we're warm. Plus Mama had picked up some coloured ice cream cones at the grocery store.

I open them up planning on showing BigE his options when I see something's wrong. I look at the box then read this
ice cream cone colour contents
5 Pink, 5 Brown, and 10 Beige.

Update: What's wrong? Where's the colour? Pink ok. Brown and Beige?!?!?!

A little explaination. In a pack of 20 COLOURED ice cream cones there are 5 that are not Brown or Beige. Those maybe colours if you design corporate or government office spaces. However I'm going to go out on a limb, risk offend the Brown Colour Council, and say that's not really an exciting colour for kids ice cream cones.

See, thinking about ice cream cones and colour. I don't know about you but I think about red, blue, green, yellow, orange, purple. How about they pick one or two of those and replace a few beige. That way we can save beige dye for more useful things such as siding, or hospitals.

I can't help but feel like one of those two, brown or beige, is simply the manufacturing defects dressed up.

PS for you trivia buffs the title is a quote from the movieThe Princess Bride.
