In 1958 Crayola renamed their Prussian Blue crayon Midnight Blue. The change was made because teachers felt that children no longer related to Prussian history. Colors were renamed only twice more in corporate history. Flesh was changed to Peach in 1962, and Indian Red became Chestnut in 1999.

considering the phone scares me and I have a hard enough time talking to people I know, I'm gonna say no on that one. :P

about the crayolas

very interesting! they shouldn't have changed "flesh" though, i don't think. i think there are others that should be changed, like "inchworm". wtf? also i think they should take out all the different freakin shades of light green that they have (inchworm is one) and put duplicates of the basics, like black.

Re: about the crayolas

Why shouldn't they have changed flesh? Not everyone's flesh is that color...

I like the variety. :) Cerulean is my favorite crayon, I think.

It's crazy how everyone is forced to be politically correct.

And it seems dangerous to give your number out like that.

I think it's a little dangerous too, but I doubt anything would come of it besides people calling randomly.

And *shrug* I don't think that political correctness is always a bad thing.

And yeah, I've heard of them. Scary stuff.

I thought they renamed Indian Red to 23 red :p muahahah
I don't get why people leave their numbers on public bullitens or anything that could track themselves down really. Desperation makes way for comman sense. blah

23 red? I'm confused. What obvious reference am I missing? lol

And agreed. It's a little weird, but interesting none the less.

Sounds like a good way to attract whackos. Personally I attract enough of those without the internet's help. I can't imagine the kind of freaks I'd be dealing with if I took it global.

i didn't watch the video, but depending on where i was posting i would give my number out. I would give my grand central number out though.. not my real one, since it cant be tracked to me.

I just has a flashback to pre-school... I went to a Christian day-care when I was little, and they'd always give us pictures of Jesus to color. Our crayons still had "flesh" on the label... this was in the early 80's... so maybe they were just reeeeeally old or something, ha ha! But I swear, it was flesh. I distinctly remember, because every day, without fail, there would be an all-out brawl over the flesh-colored crayon. Everyone always wanted to color Jesus first. Ha ha.

I never saw one, I don't think! Did you have crayola? Do you have a lot of big brothers or sisters you inherited crayons from?
