  • Tractor Time
  • Trevor's Closet Black
  • Urban Degray
  • Wet Clay

Some of these I sound less than appealing (say, Hot Mayonnaise or Sweatpants Gray), but some are quite clever, such as Rainbow in the Dark (which is actually black), or ,,Rhymes with`` Orange (I can hear Zecora groan somewhere out there). Dark Black also amused me, just because it suggests that there is such a thing as "light black", and Norwegian Cheese Brown — well, not a color I'd want my bike to be, but it really did look like brunost (which is quite tasty BTW). I'm not sure what to make of Drink More Yellow Water, but I'd definitely take My Milkshake … for the name anyway. :)
