And the winner is....

About that whole yellow on the outside and black on the inside thing, I think it's pretty clear that chocodiablo won hands down with her entry of 'Pencil'. I'm still not sure it's as good as twinkie or banana, but at least it makes sense and is a common object that anyone would know. There really wasn't much of a competition, though smallvictories's suggestion of school bus did make me think for a bit. I mean, i guess it would work if it were a school bus full of black people, but that seems sort of cumbersome. I mean, if it were a bus full of white people it wouldn't exactly fit, right?

Unfortunately, there are no prizes for winning but I'll be sure to use pencil the next time I need to describe myself at an Obama checkpoint.
