Werewolf of Oz Moby Dick Episode for Greenygreyliens

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. We returned from our unsuccessful mission to find Andy Wolfhol only to discover a postcard with ol’ Wolfhol’s uniquely distinctive and almost surely impossible to forge signature on the blog. We looked all over the Greenygrey world, but it looks like he’s on some alien world.

We’ve been looking for a collective name for Greenygrey fans, which I hope includes YOU, so we’ve decided, in honour of Andy Wolfhol, to name you Greenygreyliens.

Werewolf of Oz News 

So Greenygreyliens, I’m sure you’re all eager for another helping of the comedy-fantasy epic classic Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

Before that, a little news. Grey got a little carried away in the last episode, forgetting that we don’t have a clear understanding of our pre-Greenygrey’s Rambles past, so its recollections of seeing the premiere of Treasure Island has been changed to:

‘I thought 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 possible memories; remembering of course that Green and I woke up on the western coast of Canada not knowing from where we originated.’

We’ve also added that Dai n’ Dec are reminiscent of the lovable cheeky-chappie Geordie television presenters Ant n’ Dec.

After all that, I’m sure even the most diehard Greenygreyliens are glad it’s quite a short episode today. It is also an all literary nonsense exciting episode thrilling tale, with the pirate of the last episode revealing its true identity, leading to a sea battle of sperm whale and giant squid proportions.

Literary Nonsense Poem Inspired by Moby Dick

66.  MOBY DICK MEMORY 

I descended below deck to tell the others
the ship jolted violently before going overs
an eternity seemed to neverendingly pass
hurtling upside down in the strait of Bass.

The green crocodile rolled our ship
creating a nightmare morning trip
then it took us into a vertiginous dive
like a honey hunter digging into a hive.

It was looking for something but I knew not what
Captain Ahab hunted Moby Dick so I had a thought
that maybe Pirate Lacost was not what it seemed
but really ‘Monotonous Monotheist’ I screamed.
It emerged in bubbles, sound drowned in sea air
and maybe it was lucky, with panic not a good idea.

I swam back up to the top of the deck
wondering if I’d end up nervous on a shipwreck
and how could I survive a Davy Jones’s locker fate
with a green crocodile snapping at my sea legs gait.

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.

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.
