Green White Get Going!


The age old question, which is a better colour. Green or white?

The two colours both signed the historic Green White non-agression pact sometime following the Boer war, but relations between them have been, to this day, mildly strained. There’s a real sense of one-upmanship in the green white community. Neither feels they are truly respected by the larger global community and they see slighting the other as the only way to improve their standing.


Fun Facts about Green!

Green was the colour of the first clothing. Adam and Eve wore it.

The colour green smells like old leather and fern gulley.

The army uses it. The colour green was used extensively by US special forces troops in their black and green tiger stripe uniforms during the Vietnam

Jenifer Lopez wears green.

Redheads look good wearing green

Without the colour green, plants couldn’t photosynthesize and we would all die

Traffic lanterns use the colour green. In the old days, when red was chosen as the most alarming colour to mean stop, green being the light spectrum opposite of red, came to mean go.

Things that are green: American money. Chlorophyll. Emeralds. Frogs. Peace. St. Patrick’s Day Beer. Apples. The Jungle. The Green Lantern. Marijuana. Lettuce. Absinthe. Goblins. Tea. Pea Soup. Martians. Broccoli. Toxic Waste


Green white collaboration facts:

Fun facts about white!

The colour white smells like candle wax and beef jerky

In western cultures, the colour white is associated with purity in life. In eastern cultures, death.

In the gay subculture bandana code, a white bandana means one is into mutual masturbation.

Things that are white: Wedding dress. Ghosts. Oppression. Vanilla Icecream. Snow. Clouds. Sushi rice. Vodka. Icing sugar. Semen. Mould. Diamonds. Baby Bottoms. Salt. Beer Foam. Skeletons. Marble Statues. Platinum. Surrender. Light. Angels. Baseballs. LSD. The President’s house. Paper


Today, Green is known as a pioneer in advanced technology while white has somewhat fallen in vogue, being overlooked for more vibrant, diverse, colours. But don’t expect white to stay down for very long. There are rumours coming from white suggesting great things in the works. Think rocket fuel.

There exists a tentative détente between them, but one worries what the other colour should do if it were to be hopeless overmatched by the other...

      Green beer always tastes bad, too. This was just a little satire of mine, I wasn't even sure if hubpages would allow it. Thanks for reading!

      But those green cats, interesting fact, didn't come about by genetic engineering. They were just a random mutated strain of alley cats that someone discovered a few years ago, nurtured and began to breed. Nature is strange.

      poor cats. I don't think they wanted to be green. isn't there some product called simple green or simply green? It is interesting that green is for sale. Well that explains congress.

      But green beer is just wrong.
