Superbrands Survey and Cartoon Commuter Art

There’s good and bad news in the Greenygrey world today. Maybe combined together, they suggest that the Greenygrey is still one of the people and wolves, and not yet a super brand.

Hi, it’s Wolf Whitzer, GGN (Greenygrey News) comedy satire correspondent in the style of Wolf Blitzer in the CNN world.

First the bad news. Paul Keogh recently reported the latest Superbrands UK survey of the most popular brands in the Metro

The Greenygrey was unfortunately not in the top 20. Looking on the bright side, we could have been number 21; we just don’t know!

Perhaps like the phrase always the bridesmaid and not the bride, our Werewolf of Oz and 242 Mirror Poems books did help Google reach number 7 and Amazon.co.uk number 13 in the Consumer Superbrands 2014.

Maybe we’ll be the bride next year, or even the Cinderella Werewolf, like the story of the boxer Ray Bradbury told in Cinderella Man!

Passing Public Transport Time 

How To Pass Time On  A Train

And now for the good news. Sharon Marris reported in the Metro last month that the artist Joe Butcher, a.k.a. October Jones, passes his time on public transport by drawing cartoon characters on paper and superimposing them on other commuters… and their seats!

The Greenygrey got in the story (photos below) thanks to some lovely seating (arm rest in the second), drawing and jacket-wearing. Moreover, our Mickey Mouse made the top photo.

Drawing Cartoon Characters

While it was great news to feature in the cartoons and story we’d have preferred to be paired with Wile E. Coyote (above), Sylvester, Tom and Jerry, Foghorn Leghorn, Pepe Le Pew, Yosemite Sam, Muttley, Hong Kong Phooey, Woody Woodpecker, Top Cat, Scooby Doo or Daffy Duck.

In the first photo Mickey looks happyish to be paired with Greenygrey, but in the second The Incredible Hulk doesn’t look so happy… but green is his angry colour, so at least he’s not ripping up the carriage!

Red Bull: we have Great Balls of Greenygrey

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. In the animal-orientated superbrands sporting teams tournament, Red Bull has hit back at Team GG after Marc Latham and Rafa Nadal brought early successes for Team GG in athletics and tennis.

Red Bull Roar Bellows

Red Bull’s Vettel and Webber  doubled up with a 1-2 at the Malaysian Grand Prix, but the race wasn’t without controversy, after Vettel disobeyed team orders to take victory from Webber; going head to head like the bulls in the Red Bull logo.

Is it a sign of the Red Bulls cracking under pressure from the new upstart on the animal-orientated superbrands scene; our very own Team GG?

Greenygrey Balls 

Red Bullions might think the above is Greenygrey balls, so prompted by a greenygrey mitre football on the Leeds United website, I went digging for greenygrey balls by googling ‘ball images’. It didn’t take long before I was up to my neck in balls, and they weren’t all sporting:

Apple Scales Reminder of Unbalanced Fruit Brandwave

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. I think Andy Wolfhol is off creating something extraordinary, because he’s nowhere to be seen. I was going to delegate this job to him, but he did such a good job introducing Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem that we’ll overlook this artistic license.

Victoria Ivanova Art of Greenygrey Balance

In fact, it was while at the fmpoetry wordpress site that I first had the idea for this job, after seeing the art of Victoria Ivanova on the emorfes wordpress site.

I was captivated at once, after seeing the greenygrey scales with a pair of apples and a mirror image on them.

Then I saw the Pear of Dorian Gray, which reminded me of an idea I’d recently had, about having a Greenygrey fruit communication brand, what with there already being apple, blackberry, orange etc.

As I’m like a conjoined pair, that has recently been separated, I’d thought of Pear. I just google searched it, and there is already a Pear Communications anyway.

So, to make up for that disappointment, I thought I’d create a new poem, which I do believe is the first full Greenygrey poetry production since Grey set the poetry world alight with its seventy solo literary nonsense classics in its now available at Amazon for Winter Solstice Christmas epic classic Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps. Enjoy!

The Pear of Dorian Gray
is not moi, Greenygrey
for we are one once again
and not a brand of communication.
