Meaning of chach

chach means: (ed: have added this verbatim - I have no idea if it's serious or not, but since it's Californian - and weird - it could well be true! Personally I'm quite happy with saying 'orange orange'.) Chach describes the color of something that is orange. It's very confusing to have the color and fruit both have the same name, and sounds stupid to say, "Hey, look at that orange orange!" Also, a foreigner might get confused when they hear "Look at that orange book," and not see any fruit on the cover. In order to clear up the whole mess, this new word describing the color previously known as orange has been invented and spread about Northern California, and now everybody knows what it means and is grateful for the substitute word. It needs to be spread to the rest of the world, appeasing the minds of all others who speak the English language, and the word 'orange' no longer has any meaning when dealing with color. "Hey, look at that chach orange!" Doesn't that sound much better? something to be 'chach', We are grateful for the word 'chach', and this should be a big step in informing others and should soon become a common word everywhere, and the word currently used for the color, 'orange', will be erased from the world of adjectives forever!
