Black and white

It’s the same joke, from Frasier and Parks and Recreation, but still a good one.

From Frasier, season 9, episode 7, the shades of white:

Niles: What colour is the new carpet?

Frasier: I’m going up a shade… to Harvest Wheat.

Niles: I thought the next shade up was Buff?

Frasier: It used to be. But they’ve discovered a whole new colour in between.

Niles: So now it’s Tofu, Putty, Oatmeal, [Frasier joins in] Almond, Harvest Wheat, and Buff.

Niles: That’s going to be hard to get used to.

And from Parks and Recreation, season 3, episode 16, the shades of black:

Jean-Ralphio holds up swatches of material.

Tom: The memorial ribbons?

Jean-Ralphio: No doubt. Which one floats your penis?

Jerry [confused]: They’re all black.

Tom [laughing]: Maybe to the layman Jerry! Obsidian, Onyx, Midnight, Lost Soul, Rolling Blackout, Sleeping Panther, and Void by Armani. [Holding up red tie] Hey, Jerry, does this look black to you too?!

Any others?

(Also, I love how increasingly easy it is to find exactly the right, brief, clips on YouTube.)
