While Greenygrey/greenYgrey history is relatively new in the human world, the search for the origin of species is gathering pace. No, I don’t mean the world’s largest known dinosaur discovered in Argentina, after roaming a very different planet Earth about 100 million years ago.
Google Celebrates Mary Anning
Hi, it’s Tony Loboinson, satirical comedy archaeological correspondent at the greenYgrey inspired by Tony Robinson in the human world. I was unexpectedly called into the greenYgrey office this morning after our search team made a great discovery on Google:
The image bears all the hallmarks of an early greenYgrey, with grey growing in the dinosaur fossil, and green above and below it. There is even an early splash of yellow representing the Y.
One branch of greenYgreyologists are even claiming the image shows that boomeranging was popular then, with the human definitely seeming to be enjoying boomeranging, while the dinosaur might be boomeranging with one arm hidden, lost or not drawn yet.

The Google image celebrates paleontologist fossil hunter Mary Anning, who was born on this date in 1799.
Perhaps her most important find, and the greenYgrey’s favourite, was the first ichthyosaur skeleton correctly identified.
