I remember when Crayola® had only one color called “Flesh,” the color vaguely like pink people (sometimes called White or Caucasian or Cracker). I also remember when they came out with a box full of skin tones, which, really, was pretty neat. (I also remember years before that when the late, great, Original Magic Markers® had a great array of “skin tones.” I miss Magic Markers.)
Anywho, it’s nice to know that Crayola continues to offer innovative new skin tones! 😀
Don’t know who did the image originally (tried looking on Google Image Search, but it’s been repeated so many times, there’s just no telling).
Swiped shamelessly from Pistol Pete at PoliNation.

Saturday is Cinco de Mayo – a very, very important holiday which celebrates half-priced margaritas, pressing “1” for English, and the complete loss of entry level jobs for actual Americans. Drink up!
Lifted from Stilton’s Place, which you should follow, but “you might also like” Johnny Optimism, although it’s a bit of a dark optimism, sometimes.
