Welcome to Brainfarts, a sidestep from our usual, hobby-related content and into more menial, constantly annoying or sometimes interesting things we may think of or come across! Today...

What colour is this zebra?

As easy as that may seem to call, it's not. So let’s dig into it:

Everyone thinks it's either white with black stripes, or black with white stripes.
If you’re an average caucasian going with option 1, you run the risk of people on the internet calling you racist for whatever reason. If, however, you go for option 2, your pick is 50% correct, as it doesn’t paint the whole picture.

And the reason I'm saying that can be seen here:

Oh, sorry... that's just a poor, painted-over donkey. Let me fix that…

Aha! A zebra that's brown and white! Apparently they’re brown only when young… So how are we supposed to know what colour they are anyway if they can’t even make up their own minds?!
Actually, cartoons may help, Madagascar ain’t just a silly kids’ show, you know?

"Hmmm 30 black and only 29 white, looks like you're black with white stripes after all"

And by the way, our good friend Wik I. Pedia told us the following: "It was previously believed that zebras were white animals with black stripes, since some zebras have white underbellies. Embryological evidence, however, shows that the animal's background color is black and the white stripes and bellies are additions". Yeah, we know how to Google! Research!
