Don't it make my kelp eyes cobain?

I was shopping at Old Navy.com yesterday. Here are some of their colors:

Brooklyn
Cobain
Buffalo Herd
Chelsea
Hendrix
Redskins
Wheeling
Modesto
Rockingchair
Castro
Kelp

For a little while, I was worried that I'd been struck with aphasia or that I was in that Twilight Zone episode where words suddenly start meaning other things.

I mean, come on. Castro? Rockingchair?

There is a fag working at Gap marketing that pulled this one. Will the madness ever end? Pass me my ecru blouse will you dear?

What? No "Burnt Chili?"

Tin Man: My favorite line was when an older sales rep said something like "the young guys may have the energy, but we have all the mayonnaise."

Palochi: If he could survive Courtney Love, he could survive this . . . oh, wait.

Knottyboy: From now on the colors of the rainbow shall be: Portuguese, Paperclip, Squab, Bratwurst, Paramecium, Rectangle. Given my hair and skin color, I will mostly wear bratwurst and paramecium, though I would love to paint my apartment a light paperclippy squab.

Mzouiser: Nope, too easily identified. The color formerly known as 'burnt chili' will now be called 'chapstick staple,' even though it's really just a dark portuguese-paperclip.
