seven more not-so-random facts

Canaries are yellow.

The Beatles’ submarine was yellow.

A lot of words rhyme with yellow including some great ones — e.g. violincello.

More words rhyme with red. It’s the other pole. He’d rather be dead than seen playing a violincello. It’s why orange was invented. Compromise.

Banana skins are yellow except when they’re dead. Have you ever seen a banana playing a violincello? I’m just wild about saffron. They call me mello cello.

Jaundice is yellow. Sometimes jell-o is too. E-lec-tric-al banana. About the same time as Electric Ladyland. Hey Joe, where you gonna go with that cello in yr hand?

Yellow isn’t yellow. Except when it’s dead.
