Submit a Color Name

Think you’ve got an awesome color name? You probably don’t. But on the off chance you do, here’s some of the guidelines we used to create Offensive Crayons. 

  • Does it offend anyone or make a point?
  • Is there a joke or at least an alliteration to make it sound fun?
  • If it’s topical, then it’ll likely not work. Remember, we live in a 24 hour news cycle. The joke might not work 2 months from now let alone 2 years from now.
  • Will I get sued for using this person’s/organization’s name?
  • If it’s super political, it’s likely topical and likely won’t work a few years from now.
  • Will the dumbest person I know get the joke? (MUST be obvious)
  • Does a joke about X group/ action/ thing already exist in one of the sets?
