Best Photos of 2011 in Amazing(ly Greenygrey) New Video

Hi, it’s Andy Wolfhol.  Our best of 2011 greenygrey photos proved so popular with us, that we made a fantastic new free video containing lots of greenygrey photos, and released it onto YouTube without further ado.

Dedicated to the Doors

I’ve also copied it below for your convenience. As the Jim Morrison documentary recently inspired a fabulous new FM poem on the fmpoetry site I’m dedicating the video to the Doors. Here’s the new free video, enjoy!:

Greenygrey is a Homeless Word: Remember the Strays

Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang, word expert at the Greenygrey and Countdown to the Full Moon.  Although we have made great progress in identifying a place for greenygrey in society, we must remember that it still has no place in any of the great word houses, known as dictionaries, such as Oxford, Collins or even our beloved Free Online Dictionary.

Greenygrey not at Home in a Dictionary

A search on Greenygrey in the Free Online Dictionary now brings up the sad message: Word not found in the Dictionary and Encyclopedia.

So although I have provided many reasons for greenygrey finding a place in the dictionary it is still at the moment out in the cold.

Homeless and Stray Numbers Rising

While the Greenygrey can survive out in the cold, due to its winter coat, it is not so easy for many people and animals.

And with numbers apparently rising in the difficult economic conditions, as winter arrives in the northern hemisphere, we should perhaps remember them.

Two-Sided Arguments are Too Long-winded?

Grey Area

Did this image foresee the arrival of the greenygrey into the grey area debate?

Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang, word expert at the Greenygrey and Countdown to the Full Moon.

Nearly a full moon ago, I started defining the word greenygrey for its place in human prosperity.  That time, I focused on upgrading the term ‘grey area’ to a ‘greenygrey area’.

Today, as promised then, I will be looking at how greenygrey can be substituted for a ‘two-sided argument’.

Greenygrey has More Rhythm and Flow

While it could be argued that greenygrey is a clumsier term than ‘grey area’, having three syllables to two if my calculations are correct (I’m not the mathematician!), there is no doubt that it is a much smoother and flowing term than ‘two-sided argument’.

I would much rather say, ‘It’s a bit greenygrey’ than ‘It’s a bit of a two-sided argument’, although I am rather biased.

So, Greenygrey it shall be

So, I think I have conclusively proved that theory, and greenygrey should take the place of ‘two-sided argument’ from now on, wherever possible.

Please try and be subtle during the transition, and consider the feelings of any staunch two-sided argumentists.

Returning to the Grey Area

And returning to the grey area, in this age of abbreviation, maybe the use of GG would make it shorter and smoother than ‘grey area’.  Example: ‘Yes, but that’s GG’ is shorter than ‘Yes, but that’s a grey area’.

I won’t claim victory on that one just yet, but I think I have made great strides towards bringing the two-sided argument, uh, I mean greenygrey, to a conclusive conclusion.

The splitting of greenygrey into greenygrey and GG will also differentiate the two uses of greenygrey, so there isn’t any confusion about which old term the greenygrey/GG is replacing.

Thank you for your time!
