For the first time in 100 years, Crayola is retiring a color from its 24-crayon box — and the big reveal happens Friday.

Enter Jimmy Fallon, who said on Wednesday's Tonight Show that the company wants something "relevant to 2017" and revealed a few shades up for consideration.

"Politics is dominating the news, so Crayola is considering Presidential Orange," the late-night host said, referencing the many jokes made about Donald Trump's skin tone. For a variation on one of its lighter shades, "They might honor Trump's entire cabinet with Super White."

"To honor the GOP health care bill," Fallon continued, "there's Paul Ryan Blue It." Democrats are even getting in on the action, he said, "proposing the new color Im-PEACH-ment."

Check out the clip to see which shade of red Fallon says Education Secretary Betsy DeVos got to personally name, and see Crayola's official crayon retirement announcement, both below.

The Tonight Show airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
