June 23rd is National Pink Day!
National Pink Day offers a great opportunity for anybody to wear pink! Any of the colors between purple and red, of medium to high brightness, and of low to moderate saturation can be classified as pink. Pink is commonly used during other holidays, such as Valentine's Day and Easter. Pink is oftentimes called "the color of love." Pink flamingos, pink iguanas, pigs, and pink dolphins are just some of the animals that have pink coloring. If you missed National Martini Day, go out and have a pink martini!

  • Once there were these 3 guys all looking for a place to stay for the night. They all saw a pink house. The first guy walked up to this pink house that had a pink driveway. He walked up the pink driveway, knocked on the pink door, and what do you know a pink lady answered. The man asked this pink lady if he could stay the night and she said yes. He walked into the pink house, walked up the pink staircase, walked down the pink hallway, walked into the pink room, sat his things down on the pink floor, and went to sleep on the pink bed. The next man decides to stay here too. He walks up the pink driveway, knocks on the pink door, talks to the pink lady, walks up the pink staircase, walks down the pink hallway, walks into another pink room, sets his things down on the pink floor, lies down on the pink bed, and goes to sleep. The next man decides to do the same thing. So the man walks up the pink driveway, knocks on the pink door, talks to the pink lady, walks up the pink staircase, walks down the pink hallway, walks into the (guess what color) PINK room, lies down on the pink bed and goes to sleep. The next day the first man got out of bed walked down the pink hallway, walked down the pink staircase, and walked into the pink kitchen for breakfast. The second man got out of bed, walked down the pink hallway, walked down the pink staircase, and walked into the pink kitchen for breakfast. The third man got out of bed, walked down the pink hallway, walked down the pink staircase, and walked into the pink kitchen for breakfast. The pink lady then asked them, "What would you nice gentlemen like for breakfast? I have Cheerios and Fruit Loops." The first man said after thinking long and hard about it, "I think I'm gonna have Cheerios." The second man after thinking long and hard about it said, "I think I'll have the same." The third man after thinking long and hard about it politely answered, "I would like some Fruit Loops if it's not too much trouble please." The moral of the story is: The ratio of men liking Cheerios to Fruit Loops is 2:1.
