Green and Grey Separate, but Vow ‘We’ll Meet Again’

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Sorry we haven’t been able to bring you your weekly Werewolf of Oz recently, but we were operating a secret mission to try and find Andy Wolfhol. We had a tip-off that he’d been sighted in the north, but  when we returned to the blog from our travel quest we found a postcard with ol’ Wolfhol’s distinctive and almost certainly impossible to forge signature suggesting he is somewhere southerly.

I hope you enjoyed the last thrilling episode of Werewolf of Oz, when MiMo Moby helped save the day and I was reunited with myself. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to last, and this episode is a bit of a tearjerker; although that wasn’t to last either, and we’re now back together of course. Anyway, I don’t want to give too much away, so on with the Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps show.

P.S. I also noticed that I had included Ant n’ Dec as a reference in this chapter rather than the first one they appeared in, so was getting ahead of myself when I added it afterwards in the last episode posting on this site. I remembered thinking of it, but thought I’d decided not to include it!

68.  GREEN AND GREY SEPARATE UNTIL ANOTHER DAY

Green and I were reunited once more into the Greenygrey; and Bonzo, Elle and Angry were excited to meet us together. When everything calmed down, we/I (Greenygrey!) cooked up a Bass Strait brunch for the whole bunch, and we discussed the previous day’s exciting events.

Bonzo said he’d been asleep when all the excitement happened; he’d been that dog-tired! Elle said Angry’d suggested she rush up and grab our assailant around the neck. I thought it was a good use of Angry’s mind, and Elle’s body; they certainly seemed to be getting their confidence back in those areas.

We all hoped MiMo Moby would survive the deadly duel, and wondered if we would see him again on our journey. My hat seemed to glow when we talked about MiMo. Unfortunately, there was no sign of Dai n’ Dec; we hoped they were safe somewhere.

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.

Werewolf of Oz Moby Dick Episode for Greenygreyliens

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. We returned from our unsuccessful mission to find Andy Wolfhol only to discover a postcard with ol’ Wolfhol’s uniquely distinctive and almost surely impossible to forge signature on the blog. We looked all over the Greenygrey world, but it looks like he’s on some alien world.

We’ve been looking for a collective name for Greenygrey fans, which I hope includes YOU, so we’ve decided, in honour of Andy Wolfhol, to name you Greenygreyliens.

Werewolf of Oz News 

So Greenygreyliens, I’m sure you’re all eager for another helping of the comedy-fantasy epic classic Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

Before that, a little news. Grey got a little carried away in the last episode, forgetting that we don’t have a clear understanding of our pre-Greenygrey’s Rambles past, so its recollections of seeing the premiere of Treasure Island has been changed to:

‘I thought I remembered going to the premiere of the Treasure Island play as one half of the Greenygrey back at the start of the twentieth century, so it brought back fond possible memories; remembering of course that Green and I woke up on the western coast of Canada not knowing from where we originated.’

We’ve also added that Dai n’ Dec are reminiscent of the lovable cheeky-chappie Geordie television presenters Ant n’ Dec.

After all that, I’m sure even the most diehard Greenygreyliens are glad it’s quite a short episode today. It is also an all literary nonsense exciting episode thrilling tale, with the pirate of the last episode revealing its true identity, leading to a sea battle of sperm whale and giant squid proportions.

Literary Nonsense Poem Inspired by Moby Dick

66.  MOBY DICK MEMORY 

I descended below deck to tell the others
the ship jolted violently before going overs
an eternity seemed to neverendingly pass
hurtling upside down in the strait of Bass.

The green crocodile rolled our ship
creating a nightmare morning trip
then it took us into a vertiginous dive
like a honey hunter digging into a hive.

It was looking for something but I knew not what
Captain Ahab hunted Moby Dick so I had a thought
that maybe Pirate Lacost was not what it seemed
but really ‘Monotonous Monotheist’ I screamed.
It emerged in bubbles, sound drowned in sea air
and maybe it was lucky, with panic not a good idea.

I swam back up to the top of the deck
wondering if I’d end up nervous on a shipwreck
and how could I survive a Davy Jones’s locker fate
with a green crocodile snapping at my sea legs gait.

Captain Ahab is a character in Herman Melville’s Moby Dick book.
