Pink is the new black.

I overheard this in a conversation today:

"Pink is the new black."

The other guy said something in response, but I didn't catch that.

The thing that struck me was this -- The guy saying "pink is the new black" was a white guy. He was saying it to a black guy, who was wearing pink.

That's like me saying to my husband, "See-through pale skin is the new brown."

Or even better (you can cross two lines with this one), me saying to a female, "BMW is the new Mercedes." (I'm just picking any cars here since I know nothing about cars except mine keeps getting hit by other cars in the BART parking lot.)
