Hi, it’s Greenygrey. With time quickly running out on the week I think it’s about time we had the second thrilling episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps. This episode sees the return of Grey to its travelling companions, along with new addition Angry.
Tony Loboinson unearthed a great additional snippet of information about Angry’s human parallel in his research for this week’s historical background blog. He discovered that Angry Anderson has done a benefit gig for little-penguin research; I thought that was a coincidence with Angry joining the Werewolf of Oz story in little penguin land.
This episode also sees the Bonzo bagpipes bafflement banished, and more AusRuIcket sporting fun. Here it is:
51. BONZO BANISHES BAGPIPES BAFFLEMENT
When Elle saw us arriving she ran to meet us. She said she’d been worried, and was glad to see me back in one piece. I replied that in Oz I was already only a half of one piece really, remembering my green other half, but I was indeed still in one half piece.
Elle chuckled, before saying, ‘Well, if you’re going to be pedantic, it’s good to see all your Grey self again. I would love to meet your green other half one day, and see you all together as the Greenygrey, but I’ve only known you as Grey.’
‘Thank you kind Elle,’ I replied. ‘I should have been more laissez-faire, and especially at this joyous moment, but I do miss my limey other half ever so much. I do dearly hope that one day you will meet me as one half of the complete Greenygrey.’
AusRuIcket and Bagpipe Racket
One of the little penguins recognised us and told Bonzo, who was still playing the bagpipes. Bonzo quickly lay them down and sprinted over exuberantly.
After we’d greeted each other, I asked Bonzo what all the noise was about. He said the little penguins had so enjoyed playing AusRuIcket that they’d presented the bagpipes to him. They’d also burnt another set of bagpipes, and would play an AusRuIcket tournament for them every year called the ARIshes.
I said that was great news, but where had the penguins found all the bagpipes. Bonzo said it was like me: a mysterious grey area that went back a long time. However, little penguin legend said a Rockhopper brought them over.
Rockhopper is a type of penguin.
Bon Scott played the bagpipes, and wrote an AC/DC song called Rocker along with Angus and Malcolm Young.
