Indeed, 'don't eat yellow snow', was a childhood mantra. And I always avoided yellow dusters because it meant doing housework. Not to mention that horrible big yellow chickeny thing on Sesame Street.
"Wait!" I hear you cry, "what about the sun? That's yellow."
Well spotted. The sun is my biggest point in case. It lulls you into a false sense of security by providing you with a deliciously tingly, sunkissed hue. But underneath it is even eviler than Fu Manchu.
We've all heard the experts extolling the virtues of not exposing our unprotected skin to the sun's rays. And we've all probably thought, 'it feels nice, it can't be doing that much harm'.
But think again. Whilst I was searching the internet for 'face which looks like a tyre that has been set alight and put out with a shovel', I happened across the following picture.
The guy was a 69 year old trucker in America, and he never wore sunscreen and always drove with the window open. Meaning that over the years, the sun damage only occurred on one side of his face; hence his right cheek looks like a flip-flop which lost a fight with a blowtorch.
Pic.No.1 Blimey it gives a whole to meaning to the phrase 'my good side', when the other side looks like a camel's scrote
So dahlink, next time you see that evil yellow thing in the sky, make sure you wear sunscreen, or you too will end up looking like a melted welly.
What the devil are you up to this week anyway?
