Random Word Post – bruin

I find a random word by flipping through my 2003 The New Webster’s Concise Dictionary and write a quick – often silly – little post about it. # “bruin – A bear. From the Dutch for brown.” But not all bears are brown. It would be like calling apples reds, or oranges …. Are there oranges that – once ripe – aren’t orange? I’m sure there has to be, but that seems really weird.
