Hi, it’s Greenygrey, with the weekend fast running out half way through it’s time for the next episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps. It’s another comedy classic weighty epic, so I’ll not keep you too long, as the clock is still ticking inside; quickly introducing you to a character that could be better branded with a clever crock hook.
We’ve organised a search party to look for Andy Wolfhol, so we won’t be able to bring you any thrilling episodes next week, but hope to return to normal service a.s.a.p. We may be gone sometime…
65. PIRATES OF THE FOOTWEAR REGION
I slept well, and dreamt of a reunion with Green.
Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle Of Rum: Treasure Island Hum
I thought I could hear humming, and presumed it must be Dec, as the words I could make out were:
‘Fifteen men on a dead man’s chest
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.’
I remembered going to the premiere of the Treasure Island play as one half of the Greenygrey back at the start of the twentieth century, so it brought back fond memories.
Green Crocodile’s Snappy Style
I thought I’d go and help Dec with whatever he was doing, but had a surprise when I ascended to the deck. Dec and Dai were nowhere to be seen.
That wasn’t the only surprise awaiting me: there was something green navigating the ship. I thought it was my Green for a minute, after the dream I’d had, but soon realised it wasn’t. When it turned around, I saw it was a crocodile. I was pretty sure Green wouldn’t choose that shape for a reunion.
I greeted the green crocodile, and asked where Dai n’ Dec were.
The crocodile stylishly snapped that they’d sold the ship to it during the night, before sailing off in another boat.
Pirate Lacost on Sail
I thought that was strange, as Dai n’ Dec seemed to be looking forward to reaching Melbourne before we called it a night. Moreover, I couldn’t remember another boat on board; just rum. I didn’t mention that, and just introduced myself as Grey.
The crocodile shook my hand and introduced itself as Pirate Lacost, before climbing up onto the sail.
I was becoming ever more suspicious of it.
‘Fifteen men on a dead man’s chest, Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum’ is from Treasure Island, a book by Robert Louis Stevenson.
Lacoste is a clothes and sportswear company.
