That's Just Not Right

I was just out running errands.  Not only did I roll down the window and yell, "suckas" at the people that were running out of the grocery stores screaming and crying and looking like they were about to jump into oncoming traffic, I also came to yet another automotive realization.  There are certain colors of cars that there is simply no excuse for.  The top three offenders?

1.  Yellow.  There is no reason to have a yellow car.  None at all.  You look like you're riding around in a bumble-bee.  And I would like to point out that the fact that Hulk Hogan drives yellow cars is reason enough to permanently ban them from production.  This is number one with a bullet.  Largely seen on Hummers and Corvettes and almost ALWAYS driven by men with fake tans, hair plugs and jewelry.  

2.  Purple.  These seem to be favored by the late 50+, lefty, female, cat-fancying set.  And the purple car in question is usually something that I'm sure was considered "zippy" upon purchase.  Like a PT Cruiser.  Please do not even get me started on PT Cruisers.  Just don't.  

3.  Royal Blue.  First of all, it's just plain fugly.  And, my crazy neighbor drives a royal blue truck.  And so does the adult son that lives with him.  The color so nice they picked it twice!  I just can't imagine what goes on inside someone's head when presented with a myriad of color choices for their new vehicle and they say, "I'll take the royal blue".  Why? Can you say, "Electric-Eel Mobile"?  Wrong, wrong, wrong.  

This is of course, my ever humble opinion.  If you feel the need to bring attention to yourself with some crazy-ass car color, have at it.  My car is basic black.  A propensity for high-spirited antics does not hurt in this endeavor.  Draw your own conclusions.
