What’s With BLUE?

Last year on the Gather networking site, I asked readers to tell me some of the off-the-wall zingers their kids have uttered. The responses were varied and hilarious, but the stand-out for me was a 10-year-old’s comment on Avatar: “It’s the best movie about blue people I’ve ever seen.” Hmmm. I guess that rules out the Smurfs. Or does it? Maybe the kid missed the Smurfing generation. But guess what. They’re ba-a-a-ack.  Why, I don’t know.
  What's with the fascination for blue?   We have songs about blue velvet, the blue bird of happiness, blue suede shoes, and of course blue skies.  Whatever. It’s a very popular color.
AND if it’s simply a matter of color, there’s only one thing to say: James Cameron, watch your back.
