New Dinosaur Found in China Comedy Satire

The world was already greenygrey when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, according to the photo depicting the newly discovered Qianzhousaurus sinensis (right) in a Daniella Graham Metro article (Wednesday May 7th).

Meet Pinocchio rex, T.rex's fearsome relative

Hi, it’s Chris Packwolf, satirical comedy nature correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by Chris Packham in the human world. Yes, this could be an important discovery in the search for the Greenygrey’s origin of species.

The dinosaur’s bones were found in China, and it has been nicknamed Pinocchio Rex due to its large nose.

Dinosaurs’ Modern Relatives

The modern greenYgrey world isn’t so different, as shown by this photo of frogs posted on Google+ by Kurt Stocker:

This one of green and grey lizards in greenYgrey nature posted on Google+ by Mario Nahum is delightfully dinosaurish too:

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.

England Win Ashes Cricket, Li Na New Year Humour

We hope that Birds of a Feather fans weren’t offended that Harry hypothesised that Grey’s Werewolf of Oz humour was better than the sitcom starring three women.

Birds of a Feather Writers

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams with a sports round-up… greenygrey style.

Yes, we thought we’d better check who the Birds of a Feather writers are, and were quite relieved to find it’s three men.

So Harry wasn’t saying women can’t be funny in yesterday’s blog. And today I have evidence of a funny woman… although she’s Chinese. Happy Chinese New Year!

Li Na New Year Humour

The direct humour of China’s Li Na, avoiding mock humbleness and grovelling thanks,  although genuine humbleness and heartfelt thanks is nice, is more in line with the Greenygrey’s, as shown in her acceptance speech after winning the Australian Open last week:

It was described as the universally accepted best acceptance speech ever on Yahoo. Even the BBC commentator seemed to like it, although it would probably have been derided in the British media if made by a lower class British woman.

And would a British woman dare make such a speech, after being brainwashed with class, sexism, capitalism and religion from an early age.

Okay, Li Na did thank her agent for making her rich, which is pretty capitalist, and I’m not saying Chinese society is perfect. From the little I know about the modern China, it seems way behind the U.K. and Europe on animal welfare and the environment, although does well with pandas; and human rights often seem ignored too.

However, on gender equality it and other socialist heritage societies, such as in Scandinavia and eastern Europe, seem miles ahead.

England and Wales Women Win Ashes

England and Wales’s women’s cricket team did show the men how to do it though, when they beat the Aussies to win the women’s Ashes.

They sealed the win in Hobart, Tasmania, where the Werewolf of Ozzers were of course chased by the Tasmanian Tigers, which sometimes looked like Tasmania‘s cricket team and other times like Tasmania’s extinct animal, after Bart Simpson‘s practical joke provoked the Tigers.

I think you’ve been very lucky to have read this quite funny blog for free, but genuine thanks for reading it too; I know there’s a lot of other things to read and do on the web.
