“What colour do you want to paint the world? We have enough Mission Brown or Sunburst yellow. I doubt there is enough Burnt orange left in the storehouse.”
“You haven’t got a green?”
“Nope. All out of green. Very popular last year with the tree artists.”
“Don’t need to bother there no more. The Amazon’s gone and that mine dust killed most of the others. I think we’ll use the brown. That’s how I’m feeling. Drab. Down.”
“Okie dokey. I’ll get the paint to the decorators.”
True to his word, the painters brushed the world, soon turning it brown.
