Please be advised: The crayons satirized here should in no way be mistaken for actual crayons, or construed to be even remotely related to Crayola brand crayons. (Note: "Crayon" is a generic term meaning "stick of colored wax or chalk or other material for drawing.") The crayons pictured above absolutely do not bear the "federally-registered serpentine design trademark" of Crayola brand crayons. Why is that? Well, because the Crayola brand crayon people appear to have highly-paid attorneys who send "cease and desist" letters to Webmastersand seem to possess a sense of humor no more evolved than that of certain species of sea sponges.
