I thought the point of camo was not to be noticed lol.
1917, noun, verb, and adjective, from French camoufler, Parisian slang, "to disguise," from Italian camuffare "to disguise," which is of uncertain origin, perhaps a contraction of capo muffare "to muffle the head." Probably altered in French by influence of French camouflet "puff of smoke, smoke puffed into a sleeper's face" (itself of unknown origin) on the notion of "blow smoke in someone's face." The British navy in World War I called it dazzle-painting.”

I stress camouflage with my fencers all the time. Fencing is warfare writ small, and deception is critical to success.
Apologies that this is not “funny.”
