Dandelion yellow is the colour of so many wonderful things: sunshine, spring tulips, golden retriever puppies, lemonade, and rubber duckies to name a few.
Crayola recently weeded out Dandelion Yellow for reasons that remain unknown. The crayon announced his retirement yesterday, himself. It seems strange for them to knock out such a shade of happiness, but Jimmy Fallon had a hoot naming some new potential replacement colours. Here are some Dandelion Yellow things we may be better off without our children drawing, anyway:
Patches of Trump’s quaff
Cheap sauvignon blanc
New York Taxis
Faded mustard stain
Your child will now hopefully refrain from including your partner’s faded mustard stain on his or her shirt when drawing a family outing to a ball game. However the chances of him or her reaching for the primary yellow as a replacement is high. I’m sorry for that too.
Hopefully this means a child’s art will have taken a big ol’ trip to the dentist, if they had been drawing teeth with Dandelion Yellow up to this point. Again, moving to primary yellow as opposed to white could be problematic.
