Silver, and I believe the road was originally gold, not yellow.

Answer: Silver. The film was one of MGM's first in Technicolor, and studio chief Louis B. Mayer felt ruby red would stand out much better as Dorothy traveled along the yellow brick road.

I'm also going with xylophone.

Honestly I knew the instrument before Bacon posted but I had forgotten what it was called so welp.

Answer: On your fingers. The PIP joint is the second (middle) joint of the three on each finger; the DIP joint is the last joint, nearest the tip of each finger. PIP is an acronym for proximal interphalangeal joint; DIP, for distal interphalangeal joint. (The thumb, which has only two joints, has a DIP, but no PIP.)
