I'd like to add some interesting "colour" idioms in the language. :-$



1. His behaviour was the pink of perfection (= perfect).

2. You can talk till all is blue (= as long as you like) but I shan't believe you.

3. He's very green (= easily deceived).

4. I won't believe it unless I see it in black and white (= in writing).

5. You are not answering my question. You are trying to draw

a red herring across the track (= lead the attention away

from the real point).
