Werewolf of Oz Hugh-gely Celebrity Packed Episode

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. It’s that Werewolf of Oz time of the week, and it’s a celebrity-packed episode. At the Greenygrey we’re careful to only satire celebrities, who are already in the public-eye; and we usually include celebrities we like, and in a positive manner. Similarly, we hope the Werewolf of Oz will create interest in the Oz towns and regions it visits.

This episode is evidence of that, telling the tale of when our terrific travelling trio reached the Aussie outback town of Hugh after the Great Gig in the Sky.

This episode also sees Elle on the road to recuperation, as she re-discovers the use of her body; starting off the body, mind and spirit health emphasis in the story, mirroring brain, heart and courage in the Wizard of Oz. So fasten your seat-belts, hold on tight, we’re off to Oz:


After returning to terra-firma we spent a couple more days with Alice and Wally before it felt time to move on. We thanked them for their hospitality, bade them farewell, and returned to the path.

There were none of the shenanigans we’d suffered before meeting Alice. Feeling chuffed with our progress, and thirsty too, we thought we’d stop for refreshments in the town of Hugh, although it wasn’t huge.

We saw a bar called ‘Who’, which looked like the local celebrity hang-out, so we thought we’d give it a try.

Heath Ledger and Crocodile Dundee were drinking together at the bar. I asked them who else frequented Hugh’s Who. Croc said Hugh Jackman used to pop in, but he now preferred Hugh’s ‘Here’ bar.

We got caught up in the friendly atmosphere at the bar, and it turned into a heavy day on the ol’ amber nectar. Later on, everybody moved over to Hugh’s ‘There’ bar for a nightcap. Hugh Jackman was there. I was surprised to see Hugh there in Hugh’s ‘There’, as Croc had said he preferred Hugh’s ‘Here’.

Bonzo was worse for wear by the end of it, and I wasn’t much better. Elle ended up carrying us both over to a bush telly they had burning on the edge of town.

I can’t remember much there, but I remember asking ‘Who’s there?’ when somebody bumped into me soon after I lay down… and the bush telly’s flames making it look like there was a heavenly hue over Hugh’s ‘Here’ bar.
