I'd outlined a whole post about campaign rhetoric and the tautological fallacy, but you know what? It's been a rough week, and I have to prep for a debate party at my house. Time for naming fun instead! Here's a quiz to determine how well you know your paint-color names. (It's from Dulux, a paint manufacturer; all examples are from the Dulux inventory.)
My average score over several rounds was 50 percent ("You know your paints!"). But my spelling score was 100 percent. Someone really needs to copyedit this sucker. Caymen? Suprise? Russain? Labrabor? Good grief.
