But chocolate run a gambit of dark colors..and white.

The one that has bothered me is pink. Add white to blue and it's light blue. Add white to green and it's light green. Add white to red and it's pink. It should be light red. Pink is a lie!

Is that a cock (rooster) in your wife's hair in panel 4?

Beige is "browner" than midnight blue, doesn't mean it's darker...

For anybody who has made it this far in the comments list, let's have a vote:

I suggest that Scott creates a new name for "Dark Brown" that we must then use incessantly until dictionaries and the bureaucratic Pantone decides to accept it.

Do I hear a Second?

Actually, according to color theory, brown isn't a real color to begin with.

"Absolute Brown" Sounds like a marketing reject for chocolate vodka. :-)

Be sure to check out Fred's second album, Just Fred. It's a whole mess of rock backed by a who's who of indie rock from bands like the Didijts, Tar and Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet. Lots of fun.

Hmmmm. I'm trying to work out who was more successful ... It's probably pretty close. B52s would have had more chart success, I would think.
Great strip today.

If you're talking pigments, they're generally named after their sources or processes- thus, Burnt Umber is darker than Raw Umber. Van Dyke brown is a very dark pigment you could refer to. Fun fact: it used to be made from mummies.

The easiest way to assert your beliefs is to argue from premises so counter-intuitive that everyone will be too busy sputtering in disbelief to muster a valid counter-argument.

“Umber than what? There’s no standard for what constitutes umb-ness.” ☺
