The education potential of this is vast, fascinating, and somewhat gnarly. Citing Wikipedia:
Puce (variant spellings: "puse", "peuse" or "peuce") is a dark red or purple brown color, a brownish purple or a dark reddish brown.
Puce is the French word for flea. The color is said to be the color of the bloodstains remaining on linen or bedsheets, even after being laundered, from a flea's droppings or after a flea has been crushed.
The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) dates the first English use of "puce" as a color to 1787. The name comes from the French word puce, or flea, which comes from the Latin words for flea, pulicem or pulex. According to the Oxford Dictionary of English Etymology, the first French use of puce as a color name, meaning "flea-color," dates to the 17th century. A different source dates the first French use of puce as a color name to the 14th century.
The color puce became popular in the late 18th century in France. It was worn at the Court of Louis XVI, and was said to be a favorite color of Marie Antoinette, though there are no portraits of her wearing it.
Puce was also a popular fashion color in 19th century Paris. In one of his novels, Émile Zola described a woman "dressed in a gown of a dark color...between puce and the color of goose excrement (caca d'oie)."
Lately, the tones of puce have become popular among those in the Goth subculture.

Dude!!?? What's with the A D D ? If you were paying attention in surf class earlier, you'd know Leopard print is the sh!t.
Your racking up time outs like crazy. You must like staring at a corner with Chris Christie's digested Twinkie and half digested fried iguana laden underpants on your head.
So, yeah, puce.
