How many orange pieces of clothing do you own? Don’t lie to me, I know that there are none! And this is the problem – people don’t wear this stunning colour of fire, sunrise and maintenance vests. They prefer dullness of blue and safety of grey. Because they are afraid. Alas, it’s easier to rest on the shores of commonness, than to swim in the ocean of adventure and wonder.
What kind of world would it be, I wonder, if we were to accept orange as a necessity, rather than whimsicality. Certainly, at first it would be a much brighter place with a lot more smiles, dancing on the streets, and a different definition of ‘insanity’. Of course, people would stop working – who cares about jobs when you’re surrounded by Chinese lanterns and road cones?! The economic system would collapse, but no one would care – we’d just keep dancing, laughing and drinking Fanta.
Eventually, after a couple of months of happiness the civilisation we know would fade away. People would still be laughing, but not like in the old days. After we run out of carrots, oranges and pumpkins, inevitably dances would turn into riots. The government would flee, and the new force of colour – the Sunrise Army will appear out of nowhere, taking over. The Orange Domination will cover the minds and bodies of the people remaining. The Orange Master will come into power and open the gates of Eternity to the chosen ones.
So, I suggest you to hurry up and get something orange as soon as possible, brother. Otherwise, you’re gonna get fuuuUUUcked!
