I was out shopping today, looking for red dye to create a "blood fountain"
for halloween . In the art store I was at, in the cake decorating section
where all the food dyes are kept I found an interesting example of
reduplication. One of the paste dye jars said on it's lid that the dye was
called "red red" (and "rouge rouge" too). I took it to mean that this was
your basic red color (though they could have just wrote "red").

Anyway thats mmy story for today, thank you
