T-Rex: The local Thai place does red curry, green curry, yellow curry.
T-Rex: BORING!
T-Rex: So many other options. Goldenrod curry. Cyan curry. PapayaWhip curry!
Dromiceiomimus: Why stop at HTML colours?
T-Rex: True! #7A3B06 curry!
Utahraptor: The srGB colour space is so limiting.
T-Rex: True!
T-Rex: Pantone Marsala 18-1438 curry!
T-Rex: Wait. What I really want is an out-of-gamut curry. Yum!

Okay, so the colour science nerds who love Thai food are laughing at this one.

I love the fact that Thai cuisine is so up-front about naming its various types of curry. I just kind of wish that massaman curry was called "brown curry".

Marsala is the 2015 Pantone Colour of the Year, by the way. No, seriously.
