I have a friend who is constantly mistaken for albino, and I've never sunburnt, so we look rather odd next to each other. Reply JetAngel on May 27, 2010 at 7:11 pm =D I'm glad I'm not the only person who thinks over-tanned people look like they've bathed in Cheeto dust. Reply Itsamee on May 27, 2010 at 11:43 pm I don't think that there's anybody who DOESN'T think that. Unless they've never heard of Cheetos. Reply KittyCasey on May 27, 2010 at 9:54 pm Awesome. You also forgot permanent tans too. (just right category maybe?) Its funny, I have a couple albino friends, and I actually do turn white when I'm sick (or haven't slept). Reply WhoShallRemainNamele on May 27, 2010 at 11:45 pm xD. Nice. In my last year of high school there was an anonymous article written in my school's paper entitled "Attack of the Oranges". Advice was given to avoid them at all costs, and suspicions that they might be radioactive. Needless to say the people that this applied to were outraged. It was pretty awesome. Reply Andrechi on May 28, 2010 at 1:56 am I'm not tanned… I'm brown Reply DavidW on May 28, 2010 at 2:09 am Haha, I've had worried friends ask me if I might have amenia. I tried tanning once and lasted about five minutes before going inside to do something more interesting. Reply Todd on May 28, 2010 at 5:18 am Some "Oompa Loompas" are the result of artificial spray tanning (which never, ever looks good.) Reply Jep on May 28, 2010 at 5:47 am I'm the 'I'm too pale' guy. Reply Someone on May 28, 2010 at 6:29 am During winter, I'm just right. In summer, between indoors and out, I look like both too little and too much. 😀 please don't ask how, it just happens Reply PJ Grogan on May 28, 2010 at 12:00 pm How 'bout the category just before "none" the anti-tan. This one actually suck away any available light away. Sort of a human black-hole. Reply â¬¡ on May 28, 2010 at 2:29 pm That's Goth. Reply DAVIDE on May 30, 2010 at 3:38 pm My buddy has that, he's gray Reply Freya on May 29, 2010 at 5:36 am heck you poor souls. I was born tanned, and have been told its just right, eventho I feel its a tad too dark 😛 so i guess i know where I go! Reply Calvin on May 29, 2010 at 9:31 am My Albedo is the somewhere between desert sand and ocean ice… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albedo Reply Jazz on May 29, 2010 at 1:04 pm Tans look delicious when they're natural. Jus' sayin. Reply Watcher on May 30, 2010 at 5:01 pm Big ball in the sky did not like me at all this weekend. Got sunburned a little on my face and got heat exhaustion. I usually end up with a farmer's tan, rarely burn, rarely pale. Reply Goeber on June 1, 2010 at 12:16 am I have arctic camouflage! lol Reply Makyubex on June 4, 2010 at 10:42 am Well, Indians don't need a tan but they get tanned anyways. So..everyone ends up looking like oompa loompa here. O_o Later P.S:Am not talking about the Red Indians. Reply Chelsea on January 23, 2011 at 1:36 pm I always say "feather" Indians or "dot" Indians… And I'm a feather Indian. XP My skin's weird. I look kind of Asian in the winter because I lose my tan and my eyes are almond shaped, but in the summer I turn super dark and have been mistaken for Hawaiian. Reply Sam on June 6, 2010 at 2:22 pm In high school one of my friends was so white she looked kind of blue. Reply Ty on June 17, 2010 at 1:16 am I just feel like being that nitpicker who pisses everyone off – considering that it's a penguin, it would have to be -Antarctic- camouflage. Reply parkerer on June 17, 2010 at 7:18 am It's a penguin on holiday. Reply Amy on August 11, 2010 at 8:23 am I'm pretty close to naturally-oompa-loompa, especially in the summer. It's even more noticeable when I wear light-colored clothing or stand near the just-right tan people and leftwards. Reply Krysie on August 18, 2010 at 6:53 pm If that isn't the cutest, armless penguin I've ever seen… <3 Reply Bud Tugley on October 5, 2010 at 7:29 am So, the pile of charred remains in the last panel is the victim of some kid with a magnifying glass? Reply damnit my name sucks on November 11, 2010 at 8:46 am Skin cancers are God's way of hinting you should have spent more time in front of a computer and less time outside. (For the purpose of this comment, yes, they are mutually exclusive. shut up.) Reply Elkian on November 23, 2010 at 12:30 am I love how your comics are almost always about real things, stuff we actually think about, etc. Reply Hunter on January 2, 2011 at 8:50 am I've seen "otherworldy" people. Orange tans are taking it too far. Reply NeonF1sh on January 23, 2011 at 12:12 pm You forgot to put the "Jersey shore" category. Seriously, those guys look like carrots with hair. Reply Dean on January 28, 2011 at 1:06 am I'm unable to tan….. I just turn a lovely shade of pink. Reply James on February 5, 2011 at 9:43 am Haha I once had to have "visible make up" applied once, for a church camp game/activity. They tried lip gloss, didn't work, put on bronzer on my cheeks, stepped back and said "oh my god". Yeah…I'm kinda white. Reply Jesse on March 7, 2011 at 2:06 pm In the winter I become the Arctic Camouflage guy. In the summer I become Just Right Guy. Reply Cari on April 29, 2011 at 11:37 am I’ve been accused of having glow-in-the-dark legs. Reply Computerbug on September 24, 2011 at 9:31 pm Haha, I actually have anemia so I’m the 2nd option. Reply MortalAnonymous on May 3, 2012 at 1:05 pm I’m quite happy with my pasty paleness. = ) Tanned people gross me out, especially the artificially done ones in the Too Much category. I’m good if it’s natural skin tones. Reply TheLaziestUsername on August 10, 2014 at 9:59 pm Yeah, I’d rather be too pale (like creepy pale) than have a fake tan. But I personally don’t see why skin-tone matters to people. I mean, how dark or light your skin doesn’t really have that significant of an effect on your attractiveness. So why even care? It’s like symmetry or curves or anything. Reply TheLaziestUsername on August 10, 2014 at 10:01 pm Sorry, I mean not like symmetry or curves. Symmetry’s pretty important in terms of attractiveness. Reply georgieboy43 on October 20, 2012 at 7:37 am Sorry, but the Arctic doesn’t have penguins, that would be the Antarctic. Reply Steve on October 24, 2012 at 11:26 am I don’t tan at all, and I’ve actually been told I could blend into snow. So naturally, I live in Southern California. Reply Izzie on May 27, 2013 at 8:04 pm Cool, I have arctic camouflage! 😀 Reply Camolot the Creator on March 30, 2016 at 2:42 pm My arms are in the “too much” category. The rest of me is in “too little”. I call them “The Amazing Color-Changing Arms!” Reply Trackbacks/Pingbacks Tweets that mention Bug - How Tan Are You? -- Topsy.com - [...] This post was mentioned on Twitter by Steven Willoughby and Adam Huber, Cindy Berghuizen.
