A dirty old man is "a green old man". We get "yellow with envy" not "green with envy"."Black humour" refers to jokes about death (very frequent in our culture). If one gets black, it means one gets very angry, however. One gets red when one is ashamed. Maria F. Garcia-Bermejo Giner University of Salamanca, Spain. More[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
