No Need for Wizard of Oz Theories for Werewolf

YouTube has many videos offering theories for the real meaning behind the Wizard of Oz, with most considering the book to have been an allegory for the economic situation in the U.S.A. at the start of the twentieth century. This video is an example, and also has some great greenYgrey scenery… at the start, before green takes over!

Werewolf of Oz

Hi, it’s G.G. Howling, satirical comedy fiction writing correspondent inspired by J.K. Rowling.

Luckily for today’s Werewolf of Oz readers, our Grey explained the background to that book. It turned the witches of the Wizard of Oz around to criticise fundamentalist monotheist religion through the monotonous monotheists, while supporting the right to follow monotheistic religions in a personal worth rather than personal gain way through the mildly monotheistic Moby.

It also featured the WWW of the greenYgrey world, with strong independent women; a (were)wolf leading an animal welfare and environmentalism theme, and working class characters rising above discrimination.

It also tried to throw in a lot of comedy, while providing geographic, cultural and historical information about Australia. It is still on sale, and as relevant today as when it was written all those moons ago.

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.

Where there’s a wolf there’s a way, and when AWOL A. Wolfhol is away there’s a were somewhere out there.

Start of Greenygrey’s Rambles 3?

Hi, it’s Baron Wolfman with the second batch of files sent into the Greenygrey world by my former head honcho at Greenygrey creation, Andy Wolfhol.

As his last shadow image postcard last weekend called himself the former aW I have decided to call these images the XaW Files.

Wolf Images from Google+

Yesterday we started off the files with the humans, because we’re weres, and already very big in the wolf world, and want to break the human market as successfully.

So, here are the greenygrey wolf images sent from aW, with the real people who posted them on Google+ cited in the captions below, when available.

Life of Pi – Pie in the Sky as Animal Species Die

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. I did go to the cinema once this year – to see the Life of Pi movie, which looked like a travel story comparable to my ramble across North America and Grey’s ozyssey across Oztralia. Moreover, knowing many animals are sacred in Hinduism I thought there’d be a positive message about the relationship between humans and animals.

Life of Pi God and Animals Message

I really enjoyed Ang Lee’s movie, and recommend watching it. I thought the storyline was entertaining and thought-provoking, and the cinematography majestic. However, I was disappointed that the central theme seemed to be that God made humans and animals separate.

Apparently the message is not so strong in the book, which I haven’t read.

I agree that you should take care when interacting with dangerous animals like tigers; as the warning on the front page of the Greenygrey website stresses; and that wild animals should live in the wild. What I don’t agree with is that there is a God-designed distinct separation between humans and animals.

Humans and Animals Similarities and Differences

I think this is a dangerous message for animals and wildlife conservation on Earth, because humans have used a special status under ‘God’ to treat their close relatives badly, pushing many species to extinction.

Ever-improving scientific knowledge and studies into animal behaviour, highlighted in documentaries such as The Wonders of Life show that animals share almost all the DNA and thought processes with humans, and this is because life on Earth has evolved together over millions of years.

Humanity and Animals Share Compassion and Emotion

Humanity is at its best when being caring and compassionate, but even this is not unique. Many animals will put their lives on the line trying to care for others; and even others of other species.

Stories of dogs mourning their masters are common. It could be argued that dogs have been trained to care over the thousands of years they’ve spent with humanity, since wolves and humans made friends, but there are also many cases of animals in the wild adopting or befriending animals from other species.

The video of polar bears and huskies making friends and playing was an example of this, and another even more remarkable one was brought to my attention by Stefan Latham. This showed a leopard killing a baboon and then taking pity on the baboon infant, and seemingly adopting it.

It doesn’t prove there is or isn’t a god or gods, but I hope it shows that there is not such a distinct difference between humans and other animals that the Life of Pi movie seems to suggest.

Werewolf of Oz Editing for Epic Fantasy Travel Book


Hi, it’s Green again.  We are busy editing Grey’s Werewolf of Oz rambles for a literary nonsense masterpiece, which we plan on charging a little for, as we’re putting so much work into it, and hopefully to keep the trolls away. It is the epic tale of one half of a legendary werewolf; that’s Grey; taking the long Oz dust sandy path on a quite amazing quest to reunite with its other half; that’s me.

Editing the Werewolf of Oz

Although Grey is doing a greyt job blogging from Oz, it is perhaps understandable under its circumstances that it isn’t the top notch quality prose of our combined North American Rambles.  So the remaining team at the Greenygrey have been carefully editing and interpreting its blogs to make them worthy of you.

We just caught up with yesterday’s Werewolf of Oz, and here’s the edit.  We hope you like the changes we’ve made, which are after the poem, and think it’s a worthwhile improvement.

108.  Bye Bye Bingie, we’re off on a Bottlenose Travel Fantasy

I awoke later than the others, and they seemed all ready to leave when I first looked up. They were chatting jollily, and there seemed to be a new spirit amongst them.

Buzzing Off from the Bees of Bingie

The bees put on a great brekkie of honey nut munchers, and I felt a new surge of energy flow through my body. I almost felt green, and thought my emerald cork hat might be glowing. I asked the others, but they could see no change in it.

After munching
all the munchers
we made our way
out to sea
for parley
with Barry
and family.

Be Safe said the Bees at Sea

The bees flew out out as far as the first horizon, which was the limit of their safe flight range; but some bungeed a little further. They all sang goodbyee. It was a beeautiful sight from the clear early morning ocean, lit up aquamarine by the new day’s sun.

The harness and raft worked well. Barry and I swam in the front, with Barry’s wife and three calves in two rows behind us. It felt good to be a dolphin again, and to be swimming in the open sea with great company; although sad to be without bee.
