First off, thank you for your silly question! It’s the only kind worth answering, after all. I was worried you’d all be so serious.
Let’s kick this thing off right, shall we?
The story of these babies goes way back. I made ‘em myself in my days as a traveling salesman among the mystic hillsides of Lake Schrew Shalloo. I wanted to stand out from the crowd (the crowd of traveling salesmen, you can imagine), so I sewed me up some ritzy-looking emerald opera gloves, and folks had no choice but to pay attention. I became known as “Greensleeves” in 3 counties and by less savory names in others, but I’ll tell you one thing. I sure wasn’t invisible anymore.
The rest, my friend, is history.
As for why I chose green, I’ve always been mighty fond of the color. Simple as that.
remember this fucker
