Haha, ha, um . . . what? From MSN (originally from Better Homes and Gardens), in an article in the House & Home section entitled "Manly Man Makeover":

Color
Most women learn during their teen years that one of their personal "signatures" is an individualized color palette. Throughout their lives, they refer to it when selecting makeup, clothing and other personal accessories. Most men, lacking a tailored palette, do develop color preferences—just don't ask them to name commercial tones or to produce a handful of color chips! One rule of thumb: Many of our favorite colors are closely linked to the sports teams we follow.

Ha ha ha, um, what?

No no no, your colors can't come from a sports team, you're a girl! GIRLS DON'T LIKE SPORTS.

You're supposed to tell us about your individualized color palette, you know, the one that you developed whilst in high school? That one? Come on, tell me the commercial names of your tones, throw some color chips at me, I know you have some!! YOU'RE A GIRL!

The only way this article could have been better is if it was called, "Manly-man Makeover for Men." I really wish that's what it was called.

The only truly manly decorating job I've ever seen would be the Paper Street house from Fight Club.

You girls, when you all go to the bathroom at once, you're talking about your color palettes, aren't you?

This is article makes some ludicrous assumptions about men. I had a very strong personalized color palatte in high school.

It consisted of blue and black.

impressive paragraph
You'd think with that many words in one place, they'd form a valid statement just by accident.
