    Before all others, one colour was employed by the Color Underground to insight the revolution. That colour is Dissidange.

    An incredibly powerful, rebellious tone often associated with vandalism and guerrilla propaganda, it proved too influential that the current communist regimes failed to keep it suppressed from it's visible glory.

    Embrace beauty, embrace change, embrace Dissidange.

    3D tvs are the future of television. Hence, I nominate "blurange". Just like how the past was once colored in black and white the future will be blurange a gradient of blue melding into orange as evidenced by every poster of a futuristic science fiction movie or video game.

    Moonage - A mystical grey/silver colour that glows at night. Many say that this colour is created with the tears from the moon that rain down from the night sky once every hundred years.

    Vivid-viviara. Causes immediate bleaching of the retinal pigment upon visual contact. Warning: known to attract Triffids.

    Bort - a seemingly unnatural and unwanted colour but is constantly sold out of at all paint stores and every stranger in the shop absolutely requires this particular colour

    'Hue-Manity' - the one colour we all are around the world, the colour that people need to see above all skin colours. Don't be 'colour blind' be 'colour full'

    Surliesque - the colour of cranky old people.


    It's that special colour of red that only the colourblind see. Seen only when an idiot, upon finding out that very fact, says "What, so you only see in black and white?".

    Note: Colour also seen when colouring a picture in, only to find out that you made the sky purple.

    Paralyzimine: The colour a politician's face turns when asked to justify why Australia doesn't have an R rating for video games.

    Fuckyousuckersia: The colour used in accounting ledgers to indicate profit earned by gouging Australian gamers with vastly higher prices for the exact same games elsewhere.

    Douchrange - that orange/brown fake tan color seen on socialites out on the town, often with a slight red tinge of intoxication.

    brpwn - everyone knows what this looks like. Now it has a name.

    lag - unfortuntely not able to be seen by the human eye, and therefore not very useful, this colour is always behind the visible colour spectrum.

    Meelor - The colour of that unidentifiable piece of food that you find in your "special" fried rice.

    Despite the name it’s not a party colour. It’s dark and dull. Not quite brown, not quite grey but somewhere in between.
    It’s the colour of the Background Of Next Gen Shooters

    Pronunciation: /[hof-uhl]/ n, adj., -er, -est.

    1) A dark brown pertaining to the chest of David Hasslehoff.
    2) One's need to ingest a hamburger or similar sandwich while inebriated.

    1) Beauty.

    "Bacon" - the colour of delicious

    "Woman Colour" - any colour that can't be entered as a name in html, you know the ones i'm talking about

    "Sprung Red" - the colour your face goes when someone walks in on you looking at porn

    While officially discovered in 1986, this colour resembles colours that are much older. While only a short while ago, its colour was bright, vibrant and it was the envy of colours of the opposite hue, today; very few colours are seen with it.

    As it used to be popular, this colour was over used on a number different pallet s. This led to turpentine or paint thinner abuse in an attempt to resolve the colour issues.

    In a last ditch attempt to bring back its luminosity, Lohan attempted to decorate itself. This backfired, which unfortunately resulted in Lohan being only visible when surrounded by blue and red.

    Blellow - Blue + Yellow
    Rorange - Red + Orange
    Glack - Green + Black

    My Three Colours

    Noob - really sucks at being a colour. There is no colour like it as it doesn’t listen to anyone, and has no clue about being a colour. Don't expect anything special from this colour; it's extremely annoying and excessively stupid

    fo' shizzle my nizzle – the colour of rappers, gangsta’s and black American brother. It’s black with attitude, and carries an uzi. Will beat yo punk ass down and steal yo cash.

    Pow Biff Bam- The colour of a connecting punch from a comic book hero. Extremely hard to distinguish from other colours, May require X-ray vision or other superpower to witness this spectacle. If you have none of these, being Batman should do the trick.

    Oumpgh: The colour associated with feeling queasy almost to the point of throwing up but not QUITE there yet

    Usage: "Boy that rollercoaster really throws the lunch around, you've come over all Oumpgh mate!"

    Refreshian - The colour of the sense of refreshment you get from the first beer after work on a hot summers day.
    The brewer who manages to manufacture beer this color will achieve world domination.

    Shpoiple: A highly perplex colour discovered by Dr. Herbert Canbelical in 2011. The colour was found when he looked at a drenticle through a zonoscope while shining the light of the flame of the element ignitogen (Ig). Unfortunately, the colour was so overwhelming that Canbelical's brain fried.

    Canbelical is the only man to have witnessed Shpoiple. Scientists are in the process of creating a pair of goggles made of rubinex that will allow people to see the colour without their brains melting.

    It is predicted that in 50 years time, after wearing the goggles, humans will be able to witness shpoiple with the need of googles.

    Xorx - 3 parts Cyan with 1 part Magenta. The colour that people see when they open their eyes underwater

    2nd Entry:

    Bluvi: The effervescent glow of a well-meaning but annoying fairy. This colour is almost always associated with the phrase "hey listen!", causing an assault on two senses.

    This colour is so bright, that staring directly into it will cause you to go blind. Unfortunately you will not go deaf, and for ever be reliant on your faithful guide-fairy.


    (Pronounced aw-ler-on)

    Is the serene blue-purple that appears near the horizon as the last flickers of light fade after a sunset

    Regretigo - Seen only by drunk (and most likely shallow) men, and therefore never successfully remembered, it is a coloured glow that surrounds and highlights any 'totally hot chics' nearby. Unknown to the male victim, it is actually the colour of pheromones released by crazy, overweight, or overly hairy women, amongst others.
