Salt + Pepper = Paprika


It's 1AM. I'm up with my two year old who refuses to go back to sleep, and to keep him from waking my husband I have been playing Blues Clues streamed from Netflix to our Xbox 360 for the past two hours.

I was first introduced to Blues Clues back when my daughter was a toddler. She was never a huge fan of the show though, and so I never payed much attention to the startling facts of the program. For instance, in the end of one episode, "Blues Clues" lead Steve to the kitchen counter, where Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper are waiting to introduce their newborn condiment: Paprika.

And then I began to ponder the breeding logistics of mineral and crushed seed shakers. Or why the offspring wasn't born as some sort of salt-pepper hybrid, like the mixed shaker at Subway. When a Caucasian person has a child with an African American, they end up with a mulatto...not an East Indian.

Was Paprika adopted? If so, did they get to pick the name? Are Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper the Brangelinas of children's programming?
