Posted up here for completeness, and in case anyone wants to add anything, more research to follow in time,

Question: What colour is your brain?

Forfeit: Grey

Answer: Pink - kind of a salmony colour was decided I think.

A note jumped on in my male-female question is that grey matter is not actually grey when alive, but a kind of pinkish colour. This is due to the blood flowing through the brain's cappilliaries (sp?), the grey colour appears when the tissue is dead, and the blood is no longer flowing.

Incidentally a quick google shows that the inside of the brain may be yellow-ish, but this question requires more work. Would you call it a fair one Gray?
