Blue prose
Orange prose
Purple prose

@svaldezi,
A multiple choice question.

This is a question about idiom, not grammar.

What sounds better?

If you were making a speech which pair would you choose?

Purple prose. What's my reward?

@svaldezi,
google each one's description and do your own homework.

@Mame,
We used to get huge numbers of people, usually ESL, asking to basically write papers or answer work sheet questions, or questions from text books.

It always kinda got me: they were tech savvy enough to find a2k with some sort of google search, but not sharp enough to google the question they wanted us to answer.

Makes me wonder WTF is going on, sometimes.

@bobsal u1553115,
Yep, and they're still doing it. If someone posted a question asking what 'purple prose' was because they heard it somewhere, I'd have no problem providing my answer. But this one is laid out like a test question and I did my own homework and feel so should they. You learn so much more and better that way.
