So are witches dressed in black.

And fairies need to go emo.

Of course, we at the Junior Ganymede long anticipated this trend:

“Finally, staff should be prepared to be economical with the truth when asked by pupils what their favourite colour is and, in the interests of good race relations, answer ‘black’ or ‘brown'”

This is one of those things where you keep piling higher and higher until your absurdity strains the listeners’ credulity past its limit and mutual laughter brings everything to a close?

Black is my favorite color.

For 7 out of 10 four-year-olds, green seems to be. Good to have these helpful guidelines, though, to keep any staff from absent-mindedly answering, when asked by her little charges, “The color that my skin is and yours isn’t.”

Now I’m imagining the teacher with a roomful of Jamaican and Pakastani immigrants’ children. The question comes up, and she’s about to answer “orange,” but she remembers this counsel, so she tells the Jamaican boy who asked, “Black.” Then she sees the fallen face of the Pakastani girl behind him, and corrects, “I mean, brown. Uh, brown and black. I like them both the same.”

I suspect many teachers also like green, but will be frightened to say so for fear of being perceived as prejudiced against non-amphibian-Americans.
