Colorblind

Not everything is Black & White

Snow White in a fairy place
Dollar Bill green with envy
M&M red in the face
Bronzed skin on Mr. Penny

Blue Oyster’s Cult
Deep Purple’s riffs
Pink Floyd’s revolt
Black Sabbath’s spliffs

Hendrix in a purple haze
Lennon in a yellow submarine
Dylan tangled in a blue maze
In a white room lives Cream

What can brown do for you?
Just address the yellow pages
The bottle cops of NYPD Blue
And the gold-hearted sages

A Clockwork Orange tick-tock
Flemming with a Goldfinger-print
The Pink Panther runs chick-chock
Like The Green Mile at a sprint

The Picture of Dorian Gray
More Wilde than The Color Purple
Primary Colors on Election Day
Sherlock in the Red Circle

Once in a blue moon I have a glass of red wine and I unwind
Or maybe it was a red moon and a glass of blue wine – I’m colorblind!

OK, I didn't quite understand this one....but in general, I love your blog.
Your blog taught me a lot, but most of all to never judge a person. I spent a Shabbos with you in Israel, and from the bus ride there I had already stereotyped you. And I was so wrong.
So sorry for the mis-judgment, and thanks for the lessons.

Mazzal Tov Man and Woman of the West (formally of the North) - Beard Jr. should give you much nachas.

ANON the last: this one is full of pop-culture (shtusim v'havolim) so if you don't understand it that's a good sign.

thank you for the wonderful compliment and no reason to apologize (if i saw myself on a bus i'd probably have stereotypes of my own :))

what was your initial stereotype and how do you know i don't fit it?

(where'd we spend shabbos together?)

is a stereotype when you type with both hands?

thanx for the mazal tov.

It was probably on the bus to bnei brak when that dude on the tricycle flipped going about 40 and you were laughing your head off. One may have thought that one shouldn't laugh at one hurting themselves (himeself?). Actually probably not.

nice one, but i take issue with your last line...

blue moon is a term used when a full moon occurs twice in one month.
the moon does actually appear red during a lunar eclipse.
which color is real?
or maybe the eclipse is a paradigm shift?
