Satiric radio commentary for the 90s from the man who drained Lake Michigan and filled it with hot chocolate!!!

Chartreuse--The Semi-Revolting Color Returns!

Stan Freberg here. How about something in chartreuse? "Chartreuse? Are you kidding???" I'm not! It's baaack...! In a minute. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. It's the late 60s/early 70s all over again. The semi-revolting color is back. The Casual Corner calls it what it is, unadulterated "chartreuse," but look at how the other stores have disguised the weird, unnatural green.

Ann Taylor calls it "Citron". J.Crew names it "Key Lime"--ooh, I love key lime pie. Not on my diet... William Sanoma settles for just plain green. Well, it isn't just plain green, it's chartreuse!

Polo calls it "Lime Green," The Pottery Barn, "Mint Green," Gardener's Eden can call it "Pistachio"--my mother's favoritte ice cream--and The Gap can call it "Parrot," but face it--it's CHARTREUSE, baby!

Searching for the right color, Newsweek recently suggested, "How about 'ugly'?"

I say if you like the idea of looking like one of Sonny Bono's suits on the old "Sonny & Cher Show," go for it.
