X-fILES ALIEN UFO ‘I WANT TO BELIEVE’ POSTER CODE CRACKED?

Alien was one of my first shenels (words within words, like nut shell and kernel), with lie within it; but seeing the above poster last week (usually seen in Mulder’s office in X-Files) in a report about UFOs and aliens I suddenly realised lie is right in the middle of believe too. Alien is a perfect five-letter shenel, and believe is a seven letter one!

Someone’s lying about aliens, but I don’t know who to believe! I want to believe though!!

*As I was linking to shenel above two of the three suggested pages were alien and believe! I remembered alien, but didn’t remember believe!! Then over a year on, they were finally linked together by seeing that poster again!!!

Defining greenygrey creates new word? Humanynature

Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang, word expert at the Greenygrey, with no time for literary nonsense.

I was just thinking once more about defining the word greenygrey
for posterity
in the English languagey
when I suddenly had an epic epiphany.

Human Nature Becomes Humanynature

I¬†thought how greenygrey’s uses within the human and natural worlds could be narrowed down to human nature.

Then I thought that in greenygrey style that could be made into the word: humanynature.

You may ask Y?

Get in the Queue Humanynature

While, we think humanynature would be a great new word, I would like to reassure all you greenygrey supporters that finding a home for the greenygrey is our first priority.
