Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

For our annual picnic we have a mascot we call Rufus the Squirrel or Roofus T. Squirrel (because he stands in the roof) but maybe he needs to be Rufous because he is rust colored

What, no love for Razzmatazz? Halayà úbe?

I think Inchworm is perhaps my favorite though.

I object. Several of these aren't colors. Phlox is a flower, but its not a color name in common use (although yeah, there is a pantone shade for it. Regalia? What color is that?

Clearly no one remembers that George Carlin came back in time in a phone booth that could travel time and was named Roufus. Definately that makes it way cooler than a flower or made up word.

Phlox is also a Doctor, who can inflate his face to a lovely shade of purple.

Bubble gum and Patriarch are nice. Xanadu is such a boring color. I was expecting something much more exciting.

All of these colors sound like diseases.
