Oxygenated Blood

I understand that the occasionally irrepressible science snob is not generally becoming, but, still, I cannot help to laugh and scoff at the fact that fashion publications must define and qualify the omnipresent tone of the autumn season, oxblood, explaining that it is in fact derived from oxygenated blood, rather than the blood from oxen. One day, hopefully, scientific literacy will be on trend.
