no oranges allowed

Who gave orange juice the right to be called orange?

There's plenty of other fruit and vegetable concoctions out there with an orange color. And many of these don't involve Orange as a crucial element. Just take anything with carrots in it for example. There's also orange drink, Fanta and Hi-C, all of which are made with no oranges.

And what about Pumpkin. Didn't anyone remember that he's orange too?

Now, you tell me who came first: Orange or Carrot? It's been widely disputed throughout the ages, and I think we can agree that both have been around for a pretty long time.

Let's look at the facts. Not all oranges are even orange. Oranges cover the whole red to yellow spectrum. From blood to Sunny D. And when you look at the juice, a lot of the time the color is not even a TRUE orange. Often, it toes the orange line, looking more like it has been diluted with some pee yellow rendering it only a light orange. Now carrot juice... that my friend is a TRUE DEEP, RICH ORANGE that you can get lost in.

Take a look into any Carrot's family root. Let's just see how many of them are orange. EVERY SINGLE DAMN ONE. Every brother, sister, mother, father, grandfather, and great-grandmother is ORANGE. We're all orange. So who gave orange the right to be called orange?!?!
