Melting Pot

I did quite a bit of my Christmas shopping at B&Q - on Wednesday of course.

I bought a solar powered garden lantern for friend A - her garden is north facing but it will suit her green beliefs.

A display of the above colour charts caught my eye. I love making hypothetical choices between 'Maraschino Mocha' and 'Garnet Symphony'.
How wonderful to see that Dulux feels confident enough to use this mixed race couple for their advertising. I wish they were in a face to face clinch - but she has got a firm grip on his tool.
Relationships involving a black male and white female have been common enough for years - but not necessarily accepted - as Miles Davis and Juliet Greco found when they left Europe for the US in the early 50s.
Remember that song originally by Blue Mink (with Madeleine Bell - Dusty's partner). Some of the words seem dodgy nowadays but I always liked the sentiments.

What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough to take the world and all its got
Keep it stiring for a hundred years or more
Turning out coffee-colored people by the score

So how about this for 2008....

....but I suppose this is more likely

She doesn’t have a firm grip on that tool.

Obviously it’s not the right tool for the job as it’s lacking in girth.

I hope she kept the receipt.

Harry would have no chance of negotiating a burkah in his drunken states so I think that's an unlikely scenario!

Is It True Love Or Is She Just Toying With His Emulsions?

Perhaps she fancied a sand-wedge?

Anyway, be warned, the more likely scenario is not mocha but ginger

I wish I was coffee colored.

Glad you liked it.

P.S. Have you tried the url box?

I've obviously lost my touch when it comes to 'grip assessment'.

Well if anybody should know it's yourself!

More punishment?

You surprised me there - I was sure that link would be to Chris Evans.

Hi Mr. Mocha - you can be my sugar daddy any day.

Blogger I, like the view said...

I had a few of those in my youth. . .

If by Sugar Daddy you mean that I would shower you with gifts in exchange for your attentions, I'm afraid you've chosen quite poorly as I am a member of the working class and as such have very little in the way of affluence.

Besides, wouldn't your kind beau be upset with such an arrangement?

That said, I'm always on the look out for a wealthy cougar to latch on to as her *cough* boytoy.

I have nothing to add.

I'll look forward to reading about it soon.

Kind Beau? You've never met Kev have you?
Wealthy cougars are an endangered species round here.

Is that 'nothing' in a good way or a bad way??

With his *liking* for the Three Degrees and Tina Turner, I thought that the Prince Of Wales would have married outside his own race. Mind you, it would have reduced the inbred ugliness of the royal gene pool. Perhaps it's best for the Windsors to keep up the tradition of marrying their cousins.

....hurrah that does seem to work now Kaz, thanks (it didn't last week I'm sure) :)

I want to see some white footballers with black girlfriends.

Blogger KAZ said...

Or better still - marry persons of indeterminate gender (allegedly) like Wallis Simpson.
Hopefully they would soon become extinct.

I don't think it was there last week. I think Blogger took some notice of our comments - good eh?

I wonder if Yakubu has a sister he could introduce to Andy Johnson.

I always like the black jelly babies the best

And I bet you bit the heads right off them - didn't you Ziggi?

Yakubu's sister might be called Sue.

sometimes the melting pot is not such a good idea. like michael jackson now looks like those packs of crisps one put under the grill (as a kid) to make a tiny pack of crisps. His nose has all melted away. Also another thing that's always puzzled me is why his kids are white. Did he have them covered in white molded plastic?

Blogger KAZ said...

That sounds a bit like a mystifying Murph style comment.
(Scratches head) ??? thinks ?? ... er NO!

Michael used to be coffee coloured and beautiful.

White kids?
Could it be the turkey baster again?

Looking forward to more 'Kaz Wisdom' in the New Year.. I do hope you have a great time New Years Eve where ever you are Kaz...

Everytime I try and leave a witty comment, I scroll down the post and come to the picture of Harry and bloke's nipple and my mind shuts down from the horror.

I think if you're going to put these kind of pictures up in the future, I'd appreciate some kind of warning.

Perhaps something along the lines:
warning: the follow contains pictures of royal tossers, may cause distress in more sensitive viewers.

Maraschino Mocha and Garnet Symphony?

Is that like a sissified way to say brown and red?

I love it when guys use words like "periwinkle" to describe the color of their tie or shirt.

I just look at them like "huh?!?"

They might as well be licking another guy's nipple as far as I'm concerned.

You'll be off to the tower before so long Wom. I often wonder what the poor Queen makes of it all.

My new year celebrations will be quite restrained this year - as I hope will yours.

I just can't help myself - I start out trying to make a serious point about overcoming racial discrimanation - find a pic like that and can't resist it,

I'll consider your advice re the warning.

Yes 'Periwinkle' 'Nipple' - it's still blue and pink to me.

And just be grateful that you don't have to pay loads of dosh for royal princes to lick nipples all day.
