As long as we're on the subject, why on earth did they pick the color green? Green is the color of soggy mossy places and swamps.
Blue is a lot prettier and it looks cleaner too. Blue is the color of the atmosphere and oceans that keep us alive.
Green is the color of Godzilla, crocodiles, green mambas, and other bad things that are out to get us.
From now on I'm going blue.
