Today was a very weird day for me.
First, I saw a rainbow with the colors white, pink, yellow, green, blue, beige, and orange.
Then, I drove my car across the sea.
Finally, I saw a dog convicted of a crime and then almost immediately pardoned.
My friends were with me the whole time, but so were Charles, George and Edward, who are not my friends. However, I do know their last name.
Do you?

  • $\begingroup$ Worth pointing out that (if the answer is correct), the second clue may or may not make sense depending on where the reader grew up. $\endgroup$ – SPM May 18 '16 at 12:50

  • $\begingroup$ @paste In Australia, we don't have seas on our board, only famous Australian streets, landmarks and utilities, so it wouldn't immediately come to mind. $\endgroup$ – Xylius May 21 '16 at 4:34

Charles, George, and Edward have the last name:

Parker Brothers

Today you:

Played Monopoly.

First, I saw a rainbow with the colors white, pink, yellow, green, blue, beige, and orange.

These are the colours of the money.
Monopoly Money

Then, I drove my car across the sea.

The car and the ship are pieces that travel on the same track. enter image description here

This clue could also pertain to the spaces (which are all named after streets in Atlantic City, NJ) have the names of bodies of water. (Atlantic, Pacific, Baltic, Mediterranean)

The asker has commented that he meant that the first space after the Go space is Baltic which is named after a sea.

Finally, I saw a dog convicted of a crime and then almost immediately pardoned.

The dog got sent to jail (Go to Jail Space? or other card) and then either payed his bail or had a get out of jail free card.

    $\begingroup$ @trevor You can also go to jail in other ways. I didn't want to copy the entire monopoly ruleset for my answer :D $\endgroup$ – LeppyR64 May 18 '16 at 14:01
