Birds of a Feather Fifty Shades of Grey

Hi, it’s Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonhill, satirical comedy television correspondent in the style of erstwhile Harry Hill.

Fifty Shades of Grey

The Greenygrey decided to avoid the 50 Shades of Grey furore a couple of years ago, although Grey was in the middle of its epic Australian Ozyssey when it was published in June 2011 (as seen on the australiatraveller website), as we consider ourselves a family (of werewolves) site.

However, when the returned British sitcom Birds of a Feather‘s first series episode turned Fifty Shades of Grey to Sixty Shades of Green, written by a rebranded Foxywe thought we had to mention it.

60 shades of green

I only watched the first episode for old time’s sake, having quite enjoyed the original series. I haven’t watched any other episodes since.

I thought the comedy was okay, but not as original as that found in Grey’s Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps… but I am biased of course!

Fifty-Five Shades of Greenygrey?

Putting 50 Shades of Grey and 60 Shades of Green together would make 110 Shades of Greenygrey, although a better title would probably be made from going to the middle of 50 and 60 to create Fifty-Five Shades of Greenygrey.

The double 5 if using numbers, or F if using letters, would also be in line with the double G of greenygrey; and F is of course only one letter before G.

Not that there’s any relevance to anything, if you’d forgotten the satirical introduction!

We have no plans to write such a book though.

Birds of  a Feather is available on the ITV website, but just in the U.K. I think. The first episode is available for just over a day from now.
