Yetis are Polar Bears that Stayed in Mountains

Hi, it’s Chris Packwolf, wildlife correspondent at the Greenygrey in the style of Chris Packham in the human. Talking of Chris Packham, I think I must apologise for the Greenygrey, because since I took up a similar role in the Greenygrey everybody seems to want to go greenygreying with poor Packham.

Kate Humble and Me

Kate Humble gets a great perfect balance four-way greenygrey (Kate’s green top and green grass matched with the grey sign and wall) with Chris Packham captured in this image:

In this photo, Me looks like she sneaked the green bag into the photo once Chris was focusing on the camera to create a greenygrey foreground and background double.

I wonder if the man behind them is Me’s accomplice, getting in another grey to make it eight greenygreys by my reckoning (three greys in the jackets, together with sea and cloud, making five greys altogether, while the bag, trees and grass make three greens).

Greenygreying is of course still in its early years, and the scoring is therefore controversial. The sea could be classed as blue. Maybe one day we’ll have some kind of goal-line/magic eye technology to settle disputed calls.

Anyway, I have digressed, and now need a rest, without getting to the main story I’m here to present.

Last night I watched a fascinating documentary about yetis in the Himalayas. This has relevance for the Greenygrey as it is also looking for its origins of course.

The Channel Four documentary Bigfoot Files featured DNA analysis of ‘yetis’ found in Ladakh and Bhutan by Professor Bryan Sykes.

The DNA matched that of modern polar bears, so they think yetis are real, and that they are bears descended from the same origins as polar bears before they separated 40,000 years ago.

It’s a great discovery, but I hope it doesn’t lead to more yeti hunting!

There have of course also been sightings of Greenygreys in the Himalayas, including one of Greenygreys congregated in a groupack:

Kate Humble By Nature, Greenygrey by Design

Hi, it’s Wolf Whitzer with a Greenygrey News (GGN) newsflash, in the style of Wolf Blitzer on CNN. For readers tuning in hoping for the first weekly episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps, as we reach that midweek time of the week, we had hoped to bring it to you this morning, but this great greenygreying story took precedence. We hope to bring it to you tomorrow.

Kate Humble By Nature

In front of a great greenygrey backdrop Kate Humble talked about her fascinating sounding new book Humble By Nature and doing lots of good nature and charity deeds in Britain and around the world in a great greenygrey top.

Humble By Nature Farm

Being the intrepid newshound you all know and love, I looked for a link to Kate Humble’s book, and found the website for the Humble By Nature farm Kate runs with her even more humble husband Ludo Graham.

I think the coolly named sounding game Ludo is even more humble than Kate, as it is only Kate on the website header; but she no doubt looks more photogenic, being a nice looking female… in greenygrey:

Charlie Stayt Greenygreying

Charlie Stayt showed that greenygrey fashion is unisex, and looks good casual or formal, by mirroring Kate on the other sofa wearing a smart dark grey suit and olive green tie.

Susanna Reid didn’t get into the greenygreying spirit this morning to provide a greenygreying hat-trick, but perhaps a double is more apt for the Greenygrey.

HTC Advert Greenygrey Trolls – German Shepherd Howls to Wolves

Hi, it’s Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonhill. Without animals and the environment there would be no trolls. Without trolls, there would be less greenygrey in the new HTC advert:

German Shepherd Howls with Wolves

Without wolves, there would be no dogs. In this Wimp.com/wolfhowling link a German Shepherd dog remembers its ancestry by howling after listening intently to a wolf howling.

RSPB Advert Adaptation: Humans are Welcome

‘If you build it they will come…’ Wolf-lovers may have been wondering where are all the wolves for wolf week. Well, we’ve got good news for you: it’s wolf time… and human time…

RSPB Advert Promotes Wildlife Habitats

Hi, it’s Chris Packwolf, wildlife and environment correspondent at the Greenygrey, in the style of Chris Packham in the human world. I noticed the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) has a nice advert promoting the making of wildlife habitats in gardens; it includes the above quote, which reminds me of the Field of Dreams 1980s movie.

I was thinking that it is similar to us building the Greenygrey website and blog in the human world, hoping that you would come and treat it as a virtual world. Here’s the advert:

Defenders of Wildlife Matching Donations

While the Greenygrey world is just a virtual world, and Britain doesn’t have many big wild animals left, the U.S.A. has lots (and lots more space of course). Defenders of Wildlife is at the forefront of defending animals and habitat both in North America and around the world.

Until tomorrow, August 31st, the Defenders hierarchy are willing to match donations up to $100,000. And here’s some of the wolves you’ll be helping protect, in a nice greenygrey image, with a link (http://www.defenders.org/) to the Defenders website embedded in the photo:

2-G Winter Hamlet with Synchronised Greenygreying

2-G or not 2-G, that is the question…

Hi, it’s Max Cliffwolf, PR-guru@greenygrey. After the foxy PR stunt that snared us a Felix Baumgartner greenygrey photo last month, I’m over the full moon to say that Premier League greenygreying is all the rage this  winter season.

Synchronised Greenygreying 

As Shakespeare would no doubt be tweeting through Hamlet now if he was of this age, ‘2-G or not 2-G, that is the question…’

For while individual greenygreying can show an independent finger on the colour-combination fashion pulse, synchronised greenygreying is twice the fun, and the Greenygrey is of course by name a 2-Gist.

Synchronised Sporting Example

After the Greenygrey has individually been playing in the Premier League this season, and made some great saves, Krul and Jaaskelainen put on a fantastic men’s-doubles synchronised greenygreying display last weekend.

Good British-American Culture in Brazilian Amazon

‘Welcome to the Jungle, we’ve got greenygrey…’

Sorry about the Greenygrey version of Guns N’ Roses‘s Welcome to the Jungle, but international goalkeepers are not the only world citizens getting a taste for synchronised greenygreying. Oh no, not on your Nelly, because Michael Palin has only gone and exported it to the Brazilian jungle.

In the second episode of his Brazil series on the BBC, Palin teamed up for a spot of mixed-doubles synchronised greenygreying with American anthropologist Emi Ireland to mirror the colourful culture of the Wauja tribe.

We hope the Native Brazilians can survive the deforestation and mining in their land, save the rainforest and keep their colourful peaceful traditions intact.

And as they’ve already imported a great British tradition called football into their lives, if they want to introduce synchronised greenygreying into their culture we’d be very proud.

Omnishambles Oxford Dictionary Word of Year

Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang. Catastrophically and totally undeservedly, greenygrey didn’t make the new version of the Oxford English Dictionary as a new word; despite my human parallel being the Oxford Press lexicographer.

More Omnishambles than Insider

The positive side is that it proves there’s no insider trading at the Greenygrey, and that we are still outsider werewolves. We think we’ve done all we can, and you lot have let us down by not using us enough; only joking, your readership keeps us alive.

Omnishambles was the word of the year, and we give it begrudging congratulations. Although its banality probably won it the award, it does also have a certain greenygrey je ne sais quoi.

Green-on-blue not Greenygrey

Green made it into the dictionary on its own as part of the green-on-blue phrase for the Taliban trying to preserve their fascist, sexist, homophobic, child-assassinating (attempted), dancer-executing (achieved) and racist cult-ure by cowardly killing NATO soldiers while dressed as Afghan police.

After no new grey words made the dictionary, The Society of Grey Words accused the Oxford University Press of greycism.

Green Chooses Greenygrey Balance

Green thought about boycotting the dictionary in support of the greycism campaign, but didn’t trust The Society of Grey Words’s intentions, and thinks they might be self-serving and prejudiced against other colour-words; thus harming the word-world for their own purposes.

Green decided instead to enter the dictionary with the support of the more balanced (greenygrey) Grey It In campaign, to support the NATO mission in Afghanistan and play for the English team. The Greenygrey is quite happy to be included in any dictionary though; within reason.

Grey fully supported Green’s decision, thinking that the Oxford English Dictionary might not be perfect, but it’s better than most in the world, and there’s no point destroying something old and established just for the sake of it.

Felix Baumgartner’s lost Red Bull Chip, and gained Peace of Greenygrey

Hi, it’s Max Cliffwolf, PR guru at the Greenygrey. I was delighted to see that our cunning PR stunt worked last week, with the Greenygrey appearing on national television with the hero of the week, Felix Baumgartner. After Felix Baumgartner’s totally amazing and awe-inspiring space jump, the Red Bull usually associated with Felix was put out to pasture for a day, thanks to the Greenygrey.

Felix Baumgartner’s Flight Ambitions Realised with Space Jump

As the drawing below shows, Felix always wanted to do amazing flights, and he might have had a chip on his shoulder if he hadn’t been able to accomplish his ambitions.

Instead, in the accompanying photo he has a Red Bull on his shoulder, as well as leg and helmet; the energy drink‘s slogan is of course that ‘Red Bull gives you wings’, so it’s very appropriate.

But Felix wanted to jump from space, and this month accomplished his ultimate ambition with what Marc Latham described as the ‘moon landing moment of my life’.

Felix Baumgartner’s Greenygrey Interview with BBC

And as seen in the photos below, taken from a BBC interview with Jeremy Paxwolf after Felix’s space jump, with the help of my cunning PR stunt, Felix has totally lost his chip, and his Red Bull, and looks totally relaxed with a Greenygrey on his shoulder:

Close-up of Felix and the Greenygrey:

So if the Red Bull slogan is that it ‘gives you wings’, maybe the Greenygrey’s should be that it ‘brings you peace’.

I’m going to send that to the Board of Greenygreyisms. To get a passed greenygreyism on my blog debut would be a dream. I didn’t make a drawing of it though!
