R.I.P. Dandelion, The First Crayola Crayon To ‘Retire’ From The 24-Pack

Earlier this week, Crayola announced its plan to “retire” a crayon from its classic 24-pack. Although the hue in question was not supposed to be revealed until Friday (known to coloring aficionados as National Crayon Day), the truly historic news slipped out early.

On Thursday, the world learned that the color “announcing his retirement” is … Dandelion.

For those who haven’t examined a Crayola box since pre-K, Dandelion is a yellowish crayon, not to be confused with actual “yellow,” “yellow green” or “green yellow.” 

Crayola confirmed the news on Twitter, posting a strange video of an animated Mr. Dandelion traveling the world as a free man crayon. If you don’t like to imagine your box of crayons as animate beings trapped eternally in a cardboard box, you might not want to watch the clip.

Although the retired shade will no longer be produced as a crayon, it will live on in Crayola’s Color Hall of Fame. And if you aren’t quite ready to say goodbye, there is a Facebook live-stream planned for tomorrow to ceremoniously break the news.  

For any skeptics thinking this whole thing is an elaborate April Fools’ Day prank, think again. “I can confirm this is NOT an April Fools’ stunt and Dandelion is the color the brand will be retiring,” a publicist assured The Huffington Post. Time to face reality, people. Dandelion is no more.

Will you be mourning crayon life sans Dandelion’s yellowy touch? Let us know your fondest memories of the waxen shade in the comments. 

Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks, Tracy Morgan, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Michael Moore, Padma Lakshmi and a whole host of other stars are teaming up for Stand for Rights: A Benefit for the ACLU. Donate now and join us at 7 p.m. Eastern on Friday, March 31 on Facebook Live. #standforrights2017

Michael Caine On Why He Won’t Ever Have To Retire

Michael Caine has been in showbiz for decades, but he swears his career peaked after turning 50. 

The 82-year-old actor sat down for an interview on British talk show “The Jonathan Ross Show,” which will air Saturday, to promote his new film “Youth” where he surprisingly revealed that not youth, but rather, age has helped his career.

He lamented being offered only “grandpa” roles at his age, and said, in his 60s he thought to himself, “uh oh, it’s over.” 

“If you’re the star of the movie, you have to get the girl but then they started making pictures which was great for me and people my age, where you didn’t get the girl but you got the part,” Caine said. “So I didn’t get the girl, I then won two Academy Awards.”

Caine has had several nominations, but his two wins came after his 50th birthday — one in 1986 for “Hannah and Her Sisters” and another in 1999 for “The Cider House Rules.”

Other post-50 celebs have also seen achievement with age. This year’s Oscar nominees include several older actors and actresses, including Bryan Cranston, Charlotte Rampling, Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Jason Leigh — that’s representation by a post-50 nominee in every best actor or actress category. 

It seems Hollywood might be sitting up and taking notice of older talent, despite Caine’s comments that the roles don’t come rolling in after a certain age. Other actors and actresses have also spoken out about ageism in Hollywood. Antonio Banderas called the pressure to stay young “ridiculous.” And similar to Caine, Meryl Streep recalled being offered more roles to play witches after she turned 40. 

As for Caine, he said he didn’t have to worry about calling it a day in Tinseltown. “You don’t retire from movies,” Caine said. “Movies retire you.”
