The Wrong Color


I couldn’t help admiring this dress until I read the description. “Black and donkey coloured long-sleeved knit dress…

The attached sweater thing looks kind of mauve, doesn’t it? What color is “donkey coloured,” anyway?

Many hundreds of years ago, when I was a script reader, I had to read a non-fiction book about a small town doctor who was accused of molesting several female patients. During the trial, a prim witness was asked to describe the color of the doctor’s penis. Flustered and embarrassed, she sputtered: “It was penis colored!”

Penises, donkeys, this dress is dead to me.

    “Donkey coloured”. Now I have heard it all. I would have been more impressed if they had said “turd coloured”.

  2. Perhaps they were covering all options as donkeys are often brown, red, white, grey or black. Think that cover the penis options too.

    these english can’t spell… coloured, seperate… really. Some dumb copy writer probably meant to key in Monkey, not Donkey, or maybe Dingy, or even Mingey… yes, indeed, Mingey is about The Right Color.

    I realize they were looking for a more creative term than “gray” or even “grey,” but if they were able to come up with donkey, couldn’t they have taken the next step and called it Eeyore?

    I prefer “burrow” colored myself. Just shows that the people who write these descriptions are “jackasses.”

    Fuck you jimmyp, and the horse you rode in on!

    I like your explanation though. Mingey is my new favourite word.

    Donkey colored. Really? I’ve seen various colors on a donkey. What would a blind person do, if she wanted to buy this sweater thing? Well, she’d be fucked, wouldn’t she.

    Plus, the sweater thing is hand-wash only. Ever tried to hand-wash a donkey? No thanks, that’s all I’m saying.

    I’ll have to have this on my mind when I make the color scale for next collection. How does the nipple pink silk blouse with a pussy bow sound? Sweet, no?
    I love you too Sister!

  14. See, donkey colored actually makes me want it more. Maybe it’s nice and soft and cuddly like a donkey. Sold!
