Loosely based on https://blog.xkcd.com/2010/05/03/color-survey-results/ :

Most of the color names on the left are real, but the three two-word ones are references to the blog post, and a couple others are just ones I threw in as filler because I've run out of time to fiddle with it.

Meta-Scary (Scary (647)) [transcript]

I'm teaching every 8-year-old relative to say this, and every 22-year-old to do the same thing with Toy Story. Also, Pokémon hit the US almost two decades ago and kids born after Aladdin came out will turn 26 next year. Next Monday marks the day when "Scary" is halfway between 9/11 and the present.
