Denise van Outen: Elle Movie Part is Hers

Hi, it’s Greenygrey, with the penultimate chapter of the tremendous travel-tale set in the real Victoria, Australia town of Kerang and the rock and metal magazine Kerrang. This chapter is dedicated to the dark lord comic book persona of Ozzy Osbourne, who we weren’t too keen on when he was biting animals’ heads off, but overall he seems a nice character, and a heavy metal legend who has enjoyed renewed success with Black Sabbath this year.

This chapter also sees Elle come into her own, with some great body action to trip Ozzy up. It reminded us of Denise van Outen, whom we have admired since her days on the Big Breakfast with Johnny Vaughan in the 1990s, which is of course one of the decades of this Kerang-Kerrang travel tale.

Denise has been accused of playing the media celebrity game lately, but Wolf Whitzer hasn’t received any evidence of this from his news sources, so we’re keeping an open mind, and concentrating on her keeping in great shape and admirably showing off her fine legs amongst this stylish greenygreyish outfit.

Yep, we think she could play the Elle part if the Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps ever makes it to the movie screen. Here’s the Ozzy and Elle comedy satire love story:

Chapter 92.  Ozzy Osbourne’s Blizzard of Ozz

As we emerged out of the Whiskey a Go-Go I saw a cloaked figure acting suspiciously in the shadows. The next thing, it was barking at the moon, and I became more than a tad worried. Was it some kind of lone-human werewolf?

Less than a minute later I felt a chilly wind on my back as a blizzard blew up out of nowhere. The shadowy figure shouted that Oz was no place for a dog, and he was going to take it to Ozz, which had 33.33% more room because of the extra z.

I realised it was the 1980s Ozzy Osbourne. With his reputation for biting the heads off creatures I thought Angry’s dog might be in great peril.

Elle Uses Her Body to Great Effect 

Denise van Outen nice outfit, hiding tiredness.

My concern seemed justified when Ozzy sprang out of the shadows singing Steal Away (The Night). Angry was still buzzing from his performance and seemed oblivious to Ozzy’s overshadowing omnipotent obtrusiveness.

Ozzy looked certain to reach Angry’s dog and snatch it away to a cold dog’s life in Blizzardy Ozz, until Elle stuck out a leg and tripped him up. A Crazy Train was passing through town on the way to the 1990s, and Elle quickly threw Ozzy on board. I thought it was a great use of her body.

Ozzy seemed impressed as well, and shouted to Elle that it wasn’t too late to join him. Elle responded with a ‘No thanks!’ This prompted Ozzy to sing Goodbye to Romance. I felt sorry for him then, but he seemed to have recovered before disappearing from earshot, as the last thing I heard him sing was, No More Tears.

National Lottery Olympics 2012 Anniversary Run and Ashes

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, comedy satire sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. After I’ve had a quiet summer compared to last year, I was awoken into action this morning by the National Lottery Olympics Anniversary Run featured on the Andrew Marr Show.

I then remembered this summer’s Ashes, Arishes, Oz Lions series and Murray winning Wimbledon (the Wombles told us they have finally cleaned up all the mess!).

Olympics 2012 Greenygrey Games

Olympics 2012 has fondly become known as the Greenygrey Games in the Greenygrey world, or 3G-2012 for short. So it was fitting this morning that one of the heroines in London last year, Victoria Pendleton, joined Team GG for this morning’s anniversary run:

Yep, it is now a year since I was so overworked and rightly overexcited!

Ashes Cricket Series Reminder of AusRuIcket Arishes

WOOZ COVER 4
Smashwords link for multiple Ereaders.

While last year was an amazing summer of sport in Blighty, this year’s has been pretty good too. A couple of greenygrey highlights were the thrilling Lions (Wollions for those reading this in the Greenygrey world) series win in Oz and Murray winning at greenygrey Wimbledon.

Now, the Ashes cricket series between Blighty and Oz is reminding us of the AusRuIcket Bonzo’s bagpipes Arishes played for by little penguins on Kangaroo Island since the Wereweolf of Ozzers visited there; immortalised in the epic comedy satire classic you all know and mixed-up vole now.

It was a thrilling first Ashes test, and Blighty looks to have the second test sown up to take a 2-0 series lead. We haven’t found much greenygrey action at the cricket, but then again, we haven’t been looking very closely.

Finally, we’d like to welcome Ricky van Wolfswinkel to Blighty. Ricky van Wolfswinkel is no stranger to the Greenygrey world of course, having been featured on this website when playing for Sporting Lisbon.

So we were thrilled to read that van Wolfswinkel signed for Norwich City, and will be playing for them in the Premier League next year; and in Norwich’s greenygrey ground!

Warm wishes to Wolfswinkel from the werewolf world.

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:

Oz Great Powerful Sailing to Tasmania Epic Poem

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. We thought you’d be on the edge of your seat waiting to hear what our Life of Pi-style boat-load of biodiversity were up to, so here’s the next exciting episode of your favourite werewolf fantasy-travels Australia by Google maps Wizard of Oz themed comedy-satire book; now not the newest version, after the release of Oz the Great and Powerful.

This is the third of the Kangaroo Island to Tasmania tetralogy/quadrilogy epic poem(s), covering the King Island leg of the quintessential sea quest, and fifty-sixth chapter of the Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

We have another wonderful Werewolf of Oz werileak for you, with hot-off-the-press news that the fourth and final poem of the tetralogy/quadrilogy is planned for tomorrow!

56.  KING ISLAND HAS a SURPRISING AMOUNT OF INTEREST 

Boatry Poetry is a Form of Libertree

Row, row, row the wave
surface of Davy Jones’s grave
we could sit back and relax
as roaring forties cut us some slack
not trousers to wear
but no rowing despair
as the wind behaved as it should
you know they say ‘well, it would’
sailing us towards Tasmania
I don’t know how to explain to ya
we just sat back and played cards
as the boat ate up the salt yards
it wasn’t long ’til we reached King Island
eating a Pearshape Egg Lagoon Currie by hand
shocked to see a Sea Elephant in Surprise Bay
but it was a fitting finale to a Bungaree day.

The clipper route followed by ships sailing be...

Notes 

Pearshape, Egg Lagoon, Currie, Sea Elephant, Surprise Bay and Bungaree are all King Island places. As are all the place names in the next poem.
Davy Jones’s Locker – sailor slang for sea.
Roaring Forties – strong westerly winds in the southern hemisphere, especially between latitudes 40-49, which is where Tasmania is situated.

Thrilling Comedy-Satire Cliffhanger in Book Covers Case

Hi, it’s G.G. Howling, literary correspondent at the Greenygrey. While my favourite greenygrey book covers of recent history are Marc Latham’s 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections, and Grey’s Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps Andy Wolfhol and Baron Wolfman of the Greenygrey Metro arts department advised me that there are some other great greenygrey book covers out there.

Green and Grey Book Covers

I didn’t know if I could trust them really, as arty werewolf types seem to see things differently to us ordinary werewolves; like in the human world, where David Hockney could see lots of colours in a landscape where I could only see greenygrey.

Wolfhol and Wolfman suggested I check out the Guinness Book of Records 2013, so I did. I was delighted to discover that it could have achieved a world record for the swirliest greenygrey cover ever.

Product Details

Next, I was sent on the trail of Lemony Snicket: All the Wrong Questions, and it didn’t take long to work out that it was another greenygrey cover.

I seemed to be on a roll, and felt something like happy, but then I checked out their next suggestion, Something Like Happy. Although the water and writing looked greenygrey at first, on closer inspection I decided that the writing was more yellow than green.

The book cover had not reached the greenygrey quality control standard. I had to unfortunately conclude that it was a red herring… maybe that was what the bird was after?

However, just as I thought that was the end of the greenygrey trail, there was a tension-building thrilling twist to end this comedy-satire blog.

Recollecting all the book covers in this record case, I realised I’d been asking All the Wrong Questions. So I was more than something like happy to overhaul my previous Sherlockian elementary deduction when I found The Overhaul, and saw it wasn’t a red herring after all(continued after the image…)

 

It was a greenygrey boat.
