Australia Neknominate and Boomerangit Crazes

While there is no doubt that the satirical comedy epic travel quest Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps has put Australia on the map for the outside world, is there any evidence of it leaving a lasting cultural impact on the land down under.

Australia Still Winning Cricket and Boomeranging

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams with a satirical comedy sort of sports report. It seems that as long as the Australia cricket team are winning, the boomerang will continue, and having just won the one-day series, it looks as if the boomerang will continue for a little while more.

In fact, there is now a boomeranging kangaroo on the insignia of the baggy green, personified by Brian in the Werewolf of Oz.

It is surviving in Australia parallel with the more dangerous and unruly neknominate.

Boomeranging Rides Wave of Neknominating

Unfortunately, it is neknominate; which revolves around beer-drinking;  that is grabbing the headlines, such as in the Metro last Wednesday.

Fortunately, a surfer combined a beer-necking with the golden oldie craze greenygreying and a new development in boomeranging.

This meant that the first documented photo of a double one-armed twisting boomerang made it into the British media. Moreover, the surfer showed great skill to vary the boomeranging arms between the closed-armed boomerang seen above, and the open-armed boomerang below.

A new social media craze in which people are encouraged to film themselves skolling alcoholic drinks, including whole bottles of spirits  taken from www.facebook.com/neknominatevideos

He is obviously an experienced boomeranger, so please don’t attempt this pose in your nearest sea.

Knowing Me, Knowing You, it’s Goodbye to WoO

It’s goodbye to the Werewolf of Oz week at the Greenygrey, with just one episode to go in the epic 142-episodes serialisation of the first ever fictionalised virtual travel around Australia by Google maps.

In the words of the almighty Abba, breaking up is never easy, but like them, we’ll still be working with WoO.

Knowing Me, Knowing WoO, Photos for You

Hi, it’s Baron Wolfman, creative department head honcho in the absence of the legendary Andy Wolfhol. First of all, William Wolfsworth has done some further research, and clarified that the Parcel Force van logo mentioned in the last mirror poetry blog is ‘making red vans green’.

Your very own travel photos are always good for a trip down memory lane, and it’s no different for virtual travel.

That’s what Grey (as part of the reunited Greenygrey) told me this morning anyway, after a couple of greenygrey photos it saw on Facebook reminded it of the Greycliffe House mouse it met in Sydney. The poem is repeated after the photos.

Virtual Travel Photos: Virtually Greycliffe House

Photo: This is what's left of an abandoned castle somewhere in France.  Looks like it's being reclaimed by nature. Can you imagine the stories it could tell?? Pat

That photo was posted on Facebook rather fittingly for Goodbye to WoO week by the R.I.P. (Research and Investigation of the Paranormal) Files T.V. show, which I noticed has a greenygrey design when I followed it up.

Virtual Travel Photos: Greycliffe House Mouse

And if that house could be Greycliffe House, this could be the mouse, showing its support for the Greenygrey! It was posted on Facebook by the Rainforest Site.

It reminded me of Jerry, from the fantastic Tom and Jerry cartoons I grew up with.

Here’s the poem (and links to the WoO):

The Greycliffe House Mouse

Not long after I’d thanked Dr. Watson and turned away,
in a triangular hall containing a square ball,
I was accosted by a small mouse of my colour grey.

It said its name was Cliff and the house was named after him,
I replied it was built in 1852 so how could that be true,
It said it was on a special diet and low-fat cheese kept it quiet.
