Pudding Colour???

Being a fashion guru as I am I was somewhat taken back by the news of whats “In for Blokes” in todays Age newspaper. Among a list that covered pretty much everything except tracksuit pants and those hats with flaps that cover your ears (it’s on page 7 of the Age on 7/7/12) it list “Pudding colours”.

What the fuck are pudding colours?

wikipedia says that pudding is: Pudding most often refers to a dessert, but it can also be a savory dish.

In the United States, pudding characteristically[citation needed] denotes a sweet milk-based dessert similar in consistency to egg-based custards, instant custards, or a mousse, though it may also refer to other types such as bread and rice pudding.

In the United Kingdom and some Commonwealth countries[citation needed], pudding refers to rich, fairly homogeneous starch- or dairy-based desserts such as rice pudding and Christmas pudding, or, informally, any sweet dish after the main course. The word pudding in this context is also used as a synonym[citation needed] for the dessert course. The word is also used for savory dishes such as Yorkshire pudding, black pudding, suet pudding and steak and kidney pudding.

The word pudding is believed to come from the French boudin, originally from the Latin botellus, meaning “small sausage,” referring to encased meats used in Medieval European puddings.

Nowhere in that lot is a colour refered to. This leads me to think that this may be a choose your own adventure style colour (as wikipedia would never get it wrong) and that any desert (or small sausage if you take the french definition) can be the colour of pudding.

This brings me to the strange idea that if I go out and buy a passionfruit Pavlova or tirramisu coloured jumper the Age will attest that I am in fact wearing a Jumper that is “In for Blokes”.


Cheers D

PS – no I still don’t get it, but then again I don’t see how a whole range of foods became colours (with the exception of orange). This could be an actual sentence “oh I love how that terine hat matches your salmon shirt and plum pants”. Sad.
