    You spelled color wrong.

    I must say, the Old World spelling of the word is this time my cup of tea.. but as for the puzzle,
    all the bears are grey in the dark?


    And of course.. a bear is not a colour but an animal.. but that is probably not the answer sought..

    You misspelled beer. The beer is a pale amber

    Bear beer that is available here is the color of old copper..

    It will be interesting to see what the solution to this one is. =)

    Depends on your world view I suppose. I thought it was spelt correctly.

    As I write this I watch with paralysed humour my favourite likeable neighbour through the sulphur-coated aluminium-framed window at his labours; he measured the calibre in metres, poured litres of concrete, analysed the odour (it smelt like chilli) and wrote a cheque for the artefact after accidentally getting moustache wax on the arse of his pants. And when he manoeuvred the fish fillet past the tyre in the centre he caught a fibre on the sabre (for which he needs a licence). No offence - it's like an analogue of the theatre. To go on would require a sizeable encyclopaedia of titbits, which may create a furore if I ever took it on an aeroplane.

    Sceptically yours.....

    Bloody oath that's ace, mate. We'll all be a gum tree if we get cranky and act all figjam when some bloke has a different dialect. It's a big world, with room for Seppos and Pommies and sheilas from the Lucky Country and all sorts of folks. A bit of faith and she'll be apples, so we won't need no standover man to keep the peace.

    There are so many things right about this post, and none of them are spelling

    To the OP, sorry I ruined your puzzle.

    If it's not cloudy, would it be a sort of bright star colour?

    Midnight Bear, the Newf. So perhaps the answer is 'black'?

    So what was my neighbour/neighbor doing? Maybe that should be a puzzle question. And for a bonus point what is his name?

    How many items in my post differ between commonly used English English and commonly used American English?

    Indeed it would be, following the reference to Seppoland by OP.
