Luis Suarez Biting Theory and Satirical Comedy

While the debate and inquest into the Luis Suarez bite on Giorgio Chiellini in the World Cup 2014 game between Uruguay and Italy dominates the human sporting media we can confirm that Suarez is absolutely not a werewolf.

We can also put forward a theory that Suarez bites instead of punches, and offer possible reasons for his unusual actions.

Luis Suarez not a Werewolf

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams with a satirical comedy sports round-up virtually from Brazil.

Suarez showed no signs of the stereotypical werewolf change before biting Chiellini, and it was not a full moon last night. He could be a vampire who has learnt to live in daylight as well as dark, although that also looks unlikely, as he didn’t try to drink any blood.

Bad Research

Bad researchers not knowing much about Suarez, and his previous two cases of biting, might put it down to jealousy, with the Uruguayan star player envious of Chiellini’s handsome Romanic looks.

Others might put it down to the heat of the moment, or a provocative act to try and get the opposing player sent off when they react, but his first biting incident for Ajax v P.S.V. was after the final whistle had blown.

With the Ivanovic incident, while playing for Liverpool v Chelsea, Suarez didn’t seem to claim he’d been hit by Ivanovic; maybe he would have done if Ivanovic had swung an arm more.

Suarez did seem to claim being hit by Chiellini when he swung an arm to push Suarez away in yesterday’s game.

Suarez Bites Instead of Punching

Although Suarez has been in lots of trouble on the football field, with three biting incidents and a racism allegation, we can’t remember him having an actual fight; and throwing punches.

We don’t know if Suarez thinks he is more likely to get away with a bite than a punch, or that a bite is more effective, or if he is actually trying to provoke the other player into a reaction, or if he just enjoys biting.

We can say in a good research way, from the evidence we have, that Suarez bites rather than punching.

Suarez is considered one of football’s biggest geniuses using a ball, and maybe it is that part of the brain that allows him to see things other players don’t, that also makes him interact with other players in a way that other players don’t.

No Need for Wizard of Oz Theories for Werewolf

YouTube has many videos offering theories for the real meaning behind the Wizard of Oz, with most considering the book to have been an allegory for the economic situation in the U.S.A. at the start of the twentieth century. This video is an example, and also has some great greenYgrey scenery… at the start, before green takes over!

Werewolf of Oz

Hi, it’s G.G. Howling, satirical comedy fiction writing correspondent inspired by J.K. Rowling.

Luckily for today’s Werewolf of Oz readers, our Grey explained the background to that book. It turned the witches of the Wizard of Oz around to criticise fundamentalist monotheist religion through the monotonous monotheists, while supporting the right to follow monotheistic religions in a personal worth rather than personal gain way through the mildly monotheistic Moby.

It also featured the WWW of the greenYgrey world, with strong independent women; a (were)wolf leading an animal welfare and environmentalism theme, and working class characters rising above discrimination.

It also tried to throw in a lot of comedy, while providing geographic, cultural and historical information about Australia. It is still on sale, and as relevant today as when it was written all those moons ago.

Dandelion Named as World Flower

Many countries, states and counties in the human world have a symbolic flower. With the loss of our PR guru this week, the Greenygrey world has decided to bring in a werewolf flower instead of a werewolf human. We have chosen Dandey Werewolf, which is known in the human world as the dandelion.

Dandelion Great for Greenygrey Rebranding 

Hi, it’s William Wolfsworth, poetry correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by legendary Romantic poet William Wordsworth. We were first alerted to dandelions by the greenYgrey rebranding and dandelions being the most common yellow flower around.

When we looked them up, we first realised that they are also a grey flower we thought was another totally different flower until then.

Mirror Poem with Dandelion Centre

Our decision to bring Dandey Werewolf on to the Greenygrey team was a doneydeal fait accompli once we read Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem with the middle folding line: do the dandelions dance, like leopards in love.

Dandelions are also like wolves of the flower world living alongside humanity. They are just as nice and beautiful as many domesticated flowers, as wolves are to pets, but because they live wild beyond human control they are also considered a weed by some gardeners, as wolves are considered a pest by some farmers and ranchers.

Admittedly, but also in line with Greenygrey theory, dandelions are not the perfect flower in line with the greenYgrey branding. They seem to look either greenY or greengrey, but never greenYgrey at the same time. However, I think that’s in line with Greenygrey werewolfism.

P.S. I forgot to tell you that last week’s reflection 10 mirrored the Driving Through The Desert  Folding Mirror poem in 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections.

Theories of Humanity’s Place in the Grand Scheme of Things

Hi, it’s Andy Wolfhol. The Martin Rees quote about our place in the universe at the end of the previous blog: ‘We’re not directly aware of the big picture, any more than a plankton whose universe is a litre of water would be aware of the world’s topography and biosphere’ reminded us of Marc Latham’s ant theory of humanity, so we thought we’d bring you a few more theories about our place in the universe. It ends with a Buddhist theory from 2500 years ago, which is eerily similar to some of the most popular scientific theories of the present day.

Isaac Newton, Mathematician and Physicist, 1642-1727:

“I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.”

Albert Einstein, Theoretical Physicist, 1879-1955:

“The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God. We see the universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws but only dimly understand these laws.”

Alan Watts, Philosopher, 1915-1973:

"Imagine a multidimensional spider's web ...
"Imagine a multidimensional spider's web in the early morning covered with dew drops. And every dew drop contains the reflection of all the other dew drops. And, in each reflected dew drop, the reflections of all the other dew drops in that reflection. And so ad infinitum. That is the Buddhist conception of the universe in an image." --Alan Watts Alan Watts Podcast - Following the Middle Way #3 alanwattspodcast.com. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Car Adverts Love Greenygrey

Hi, it’s Wolfswagon Otto-Bonnet, the car expert at the Greenygrey. Skoda initiated the car industry‘s love of greenygrey with their Fabia vRS ‘Mean Green’ advert:

That advert had very masculine connotations, but now Kia has balanced the greenygrey car advert gender count with the sleekly feminine Picanta advert, which seems to be aimed at the roaring girls market.  It brings a new angle to the evolving use of greenygrey in British culture by using a green coloured car and mostly grey cat (with green eyes):

Whatever next for the greenygrey!?
