New York Storm Protection New Designs

New York is set to enjoy a beautiful weather weekend, but is prone to suffering from hurricanes in the summer and fall/autumn. Now, the city has innovated lots of new ideas and designs to help cope with the destructive storms, and I’m delighted to say that all twelve reported by David Nield in an MSN article had elements of the greenYgrey elements in them.

New York Storm Protection

Hi, it’s Wolf Whitzer, intrepid satirical comedy newshound at the greenYgrey inspired by CNN legend Wolf Blitzer.

A lot of the grey in the images could of course be considered positive or negative, with the weather natural or destructive, and the concrete protective or destructive. Moreover, the yellow in the images isn’t usually in line with the yellow promotion in the greenYgrey trying to bring a bright new sunny image.

As there’s twelve images on the MSN site, I thought six of the best would be a suitable number to import into the greenYgrey world, because six is half of twelve. Here they are:

Starbucks Chasing Coffee Lover Achieves Perfect gYgboo

We love a modicum of multitasking at the greenYgrey, and a story by Daniel Binns in Monday’s Metro had the greenYgrey lot.

Starbucks World Traveller

Hi, it’s Wolf Whitzer, intrepid satirical comedy news hound at the greenYgrey inspired by CNN legend Wolf Blitzer.

The Metro article told how coffee-loving Rafael Antonio Lozano Jr had spent over £100, 000 (U.S. $150,000) visiting over 11,000 Starbucks. His original ambition was to visit all Starbucks, when they only had 1,500 branches.

While the story is amazing, and as a coffee-loving world traveller myself I admire Rafael’s ambition, it was the photo that totally intrigued me.

Coffee fanatic tries to visit every Starbucks in the world. Fails.

greenYgrey Boomeranging: the gYgboo

Yes, Rafael has been supplementing his Starbucks search with a lotta greenYgrey boomeranging on the side.

While he may never achieve his ambition to visit all Starbucks because so many are opening all the time, he has achieved the complete greenYgrey boomerang.

Rafael achieved the perfect  gYgboo by wearing a grey shirt under the green Starbucks sign in sunshine.

The computer programmer might have been showboating with that shop, because under the obvious upper level there’s another greenYgrey layer, with the outside of the shop having a green and grey look, and yellow lighting inside.

Max Clifford, Simon Cowell and Rolf Harris

Max Cliffwolf was found at the bottom of Wolf Cliff deep in the Greenygrey world yesterday morning. It is thought to have taken its own life after its human parallel Max Clifford was imprisoned last week.

Cliffwolf is the second loss to the Greenygrey world for such reasons, after Simon Wolfell was sacked for his human parallel Simon Cowell’s treatment of Carmen Electra and the husband of Laura Silverman.

While we always thought Cowell was a risky parallel, what with his past and continuing syco behaviour, we never suspected Clifford as being risky. This is because Clifford always seemed like a happily married family man when he was featured on television.

We think this is another example of the old adage that you can’t judge a book by its cover.

Rolf Harris

While Cowell and Clifford had the opportunity to be good parallels in the Greenygrey world, Rolf Harris was depicted as a baddie in Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

That was before he was accused of similar crimes to Clifford, although he has not yet been found guilty.

Britain’s Favourite Double Acts… and Trios

Did the recent greenYgrey rebranding cost Green and Grey a place in Britain’s top 50 pairings? That’s been the alpha topic of discussion in the office this week, after the Daily Express revealed a 1000-humans Elizabeth Shaw survey for their new chocolates range.

Britain’s Favourite Trios Theory

With the greenYgrey now a trio after the promotion of Yellow it might have made the great British public overlook the Green and Grey five-years double act.

Green, Grey and Yellow are probably the second favourite trio in Britain now, after the Bronte sisters.

Or did the royal couple Kate and William’s Oz visit happen too late to rekindle memories of Grey’s epic Oz ramble by Google Maps, with Green also making an appearance or two.

William and Kate not too Late

However, the above theory might well be disproved by the royal couple themselves.

William and Kate could also now be called a trio, with the arrival of George, or even four including Lupo the dog, but they still made it into the favourite couples list at #28.

Only one place below fruit and nut chocolate bars.

A better theory might be that the Greenygrey expected too much too soon, with even Aleksandr Orlov and Sergei not making the top fifty.

The most recent pair in the Greenygrey genre are Wallace and Gromit, who date back to the 1990s and made it into the chart at #21.

Old greats Sooty and Sweep were at #26, and Keith Harris and Orville were the only other anthropomorphic couple, just making it in at #46.

Royal Tour in Australia 2014 reaches Ayer’s Rock

After the royal couple, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, last week re-enacted Green and Grey’s Oz meeting in New Zealand and Princess Catherine led the yellow fashion spring colour craze after the greenYgrey rebranding, they have landed in Ayer’s Rock / Uluru this week.

Uluru / Ayer’s Rock was of course the scene of the macropod Great Gig in the Sky in Grey’s epic travel fantasy Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

William and Kate Ayer’s Rock / Uluru Photos

Hi, it’s Wolf Whitzer, intrepid news correspondent at GGN inspired by CNN legend Wolf Blitzer. After meeting a koala in Sydney about the same time as our koala mirror poem reflection was due for posting on this very blog, the Mirror reported today that the royal couple reached Uluru / Ayer’s Rock this week.

It was of course the setting for the first ever fact or fiction gig in the sky, as far as we know, inspired by the Pink Floyd song The Great Gig in the Sky.

And now, in a Greenygrey News exclusive, we can reveal that the royal couple fitted in some great greenygreying at a rock famed for its redness.

Moreover, Kate and William greenygreyed without even wearing green themselves. They ventured out into the red rock desert, also famed for its aridity, and still found some greenery to go with their grey clothing.

This pose and photo really gets the new greenYgrey rebranding:

Sensational greenygreying by the royals, and it probably even upstages the Great Gig in the Sky Grey enjoyed… but it’s still worth buying the Werewolf of Oz as an Oz royal visit memento:

William and Kate Bring Back Oz Memories

This morning Stella reported that the Duchess of Cambridge was leading the yellow spring fashion charge in line with the new greenYgrey rebranding. However, I think I can trump her story with this image I brought back from New Zealand, where William and Kate visited before flying to Oz.

Kate and William Royal Tour

After William, Kate, George and Lupo gave the Greenygrey a royal send-off as it left Blighty to fly to Russia on a daring mission to find our Andy Wolfhol, it looks as if the royal couple got into the flying Greenygrey mood while in New Zealand.

Hi, it’s Paco Wolfsang, apprentice fashionista at the Greenygrey; inspired by Paco Rabanne.

Yes, it was like the scene where Green and Grey separated again in Oz, after the epic battle with Pirate Lacoste in Bass Strait, told in a classic Werewolf of Oz blog episode:

‘At the end of the meal we, Green and I, unfortunately had to announce that we would be parting again. The others were disappointed, but the Greenygrey world needed Green, and I thought I should conclude this quest on my own.
Green shapeshifted into an albatross for the long journey back to the Greenygrey world. We climbed to the top of the mast to wave it off, singing Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll meet again.’
As Green albatross reached the horizon it looked back, did a roll, and tipped its wings; before disappearing from view into the azure.’

World Cities to Escape Pollution Under Bubbles

Blue sky city park days could be a thing of the past if humanity continues to pollute the planet. Ross McGuiness reported in the Metro last week that Beijing’s pollution level has hit Orange for the first time: ‘The World Health Organization says the presence of tiny pollution particles – known as PM2.5 – should not exceed 25 micrograms per cubic metre. In Beijing, the levels were recorded at close to 400.’

Johnson and Osborne’s U.K. Future 

Hi, it’s Wolf Whitzer with the Greenygrey News. London mayor Boris Johnson and UK Chancellor George Osborne of course cited China as a role model for the U.K. after visiting there last year.

I think China can be an example of hard work, innovation and industriousness, but Beijing and other cities pay for industrialisation with terrible smog: reminiscent of Victorian London.

Johnson also used Harry Potter to try and bind the nations together, as Potter had a relationship with a Chinese girl called Cho Chang.

Maybe if Johnson goes to Australia he’ll mention our very own penguin classic Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

City Bubbles to Breathe

The article also reported ‘a British architecture and design firm based in London has a plan to let people breathe in clean air. A team at Orproject is currently working on bringing a park enclosed in a bubble to Beijing. The design proposes housing a botanical garden under a bubble dome-like structure, which could also cover office buildings, retail outlets and apartments…’ up to a whole city.

Here’s what it could look like, as featured in the Metro:

The best way to beat the Beijing smog - live in a bubble

While it could be good for the Greenygrey brand to get more coverage, and is creating work, we hope humanity tackles pollution rather than having to use bubbles for clean air.
