A man goes to the doctor complaining of stomach pains.
"First things first", says the doctor, "lets look at your diet. What sort

"That's it? Don't you get rather bored?," says the doctor.
"Not at all," says the man. "You'd be amazed. The pinks have a sort of
sherbetty flavour, the browns chocolate, the yellows banana..."
"I get the general idea", says the doctor. "How many do you eat?"
"I have a couple of reds for breakfast, a pink and a blue for lunch, a black

"You know what your problem is, don't you?" said the doctor. "You're not
getting enough greens."
