Chavez Bans the Color Yellow

Add another thing to the list of banned items in Venezuela. Coke Zero is was already banned for "health" reasons, now the color yellow is seen as a sign of anti-government subversiveness. Besides, Chavez has stated, it makes people look washed-out and weak, which is not the image he wants for his people.

The country will be given one month to get rid of all its yellow clothing and paint houses a different color. Huge vats of red dye have been placed in "color treatment" centers around the country where citizens can dye their clothes and pick up cans of red paint.

Foreigners planning to travel to the country are warned to leave behind any yellow clothing. Those found wearing the offending color after the deadline will be questioned by authorities about their loyalties and imprisoned.
