Apple a Day Creates the Doctor’s Wordplay; Inspiring Poetic Display

This blog post title wordplays on the famous old phrase, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. While I have a couple of more serious themes to write about, I wonder if it’s worth it in the current media age, with less the better: less research, less truth, less content, less depth, less gravity and less morality.

This is largely a parody comedy blog post, with a message of how conspiracy theories can be seen everywhere, rather than Apple is in a conspiracy with me… I’m certainly not a-were (sic) of it anyway!

I’m not saying there are no conspiracies, just that not everything is one… but mostly I’m just having fun!

Apologies for an Unexpected Poetic Interlude
(this headline, which appears before the poem spacewise, but was included afterwards, timewise, was perhaps inspired by unconscious Monty Python memories, or Spike Milligan; I was reminded of the latter by a couple of Best Of specials after the recent Philippa Perry surrealism documentary, from his series between 1969 and 1982, which was prime inspirational time for me, born in 1965).

I usually find some greenYgrey-relevant news perusing the MSN news headlines, as I did with this today, and I think it’s worthwhile…
in a fun parody comedy way,
which is one side of the greenYgrey,

gYgPOPer Photo Bombs Apple Presentation

This photo in a story about Apple Live Photos has so much greenYgrey/PinkyOrangePurple relevance I don’t know were (sic) to begin! The photo contains a classic old-fashioned greenygrey scene, while the yellow circles icon looks like a technological representation of the sun, and LIVE could be a gYgPOP slogan.

Then the person below the waterfall in the image is doing what I called the boomerang during the writing of Werewolf of Oz. When a person is doing it their whole body looks like a Y, which also grew in relevance during the WoO writing (I have since seen a documentary about mid-twentieth-century New York protests where demonstrators used a similar arms expression symbol as a V for Victory).

The person in the photo is probably wearing red, and it would be stretching it a bit far, like his arms, to claim they were pinky or purple. Their hair does look orange though. Then the stage décor looks old-fashioned greenygrey, with a preponderousness of grey, and some green lines.

For heaps of classic coffilosophy there is only one book:

Wildlife is Free: fourYfive Forget Fur For New Readymade Art

Wildlife is Free is a simple slogan, but I Googled it, and didn’t find it, so am showcasing it here, with four images I just saw on a MSN News story, creatively crafted into a greenYgrey-relevant readYmade to celebrate the centennial anniversary of Marcel Duchamp’s most famous toilet to fountain artwork, which is considered the most important twentieth century creation by many aficionados.

Wildlife is Free Double Meaning

Wildlife is Free works as a double meaning, as much surreal art consists of juxtaposing different items or ideas:

  1. Animals living in the wild are free
  2. Animals living in the wild are free for humans to see

While some animal welfare activists don’t want any animals to be in ‘human captivity’, I take a more greenYgrey attitude to it, thinking that in the current global situation for animals some are better off protected in captivity, and that they act as ambassadors for future generations, as I recently heard them described in a wildlife park.

Anyway that’s enough written art, and here’s some artistic images carefully crafted into a great new greenYgrey readymade:

Satirical Comedy Harry Hill Inspired Television Adverts

Adverts can be very entertaining… and greenygrey. Today I’ve got five adverts that are both entertaining and greenygrey.

Hi, it’s Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonhill, satirical comedy television correspondent at the greenygrey inspired by Harry Hill.

Television Adverts

First there’s this Twix advert, which has multiple greenYgrey on many levels. Earl and Seamus are similar to Green and Grey, with the Twix like our Y. There’s also lots of greenYgrey scenery, and the factory path is shaped like a Y.

These two Mitsubishi adverts have classic greenYgrey scenery.

Outlander has futuristic greenYgrey:

Mirage has urban greenYgrey:

Talisker Storm has several episodes with great greenygrey scenery on YouTube.

These Geiko adverts stress 15 minutes to save 15% on car insurance.. and have 15% more greenygrey than the average advert:

Satirical Comedy Blog: New Television Adverts

Warm weather in Blighty is increasing thirst, so Strongbow’s great greenYgrey advert must be hitting the target now. It includes all the best qualities of the new greenYgrey rebranding, with green and yellow nature in one half, and green and grey in the other.

New Adverts

Hi, it’s Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonhill, satirical comedy television correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by Harry Hill. Please remember alcohol legal drinking ages, and drink in moderation.

The new Karrimor advert also has a lot of great greenYgreyness, with street scenes mixing concrete and nature:

Rated People Adverts

Rated People have produced several adverts featuring different tradespeople, but all containing a good slice of old fashioned Greenygrey:

Plumber

Electrician

Painter

Travel Thru History Article Celebrates Greenygrey

While it’s great to see Marc Latham talking greenygrey here and in his articles, it is always nice to read other people noticing and appreciating greenygrey.

St. Kevin‘s Kitchen, Ireland Article

Hi, it’s Jack Wolfpac here, with exciting news from the world of greenygrey travel writing.

J.M. Bridgeman did just that in her St. Kevin’s Kitchen, Glendalough, County Wicklow, Ireland article on TravelThruHistory. Wondering what drew her to the monastery, she wrote:

‘Perhaps what propels me to Glendalough can be attributed to the romance of ruins. Or is it the literal tug of history, of grey moss-munched stones informed by human hands?’

There’s lots more interesting observations and five nice photos; which are all greenygrey; in the article, and here’s a couple more greenygrey ones of the area from Zemanta:

Yetis are Polar Bears that Stayed in Mountains

Hi, it’s Chris Packwolf, wildlife correspondent at the Greenygrey in the style of Chris Packham in the human. Talking of Chris Packham, I think I must apologise for the Greenygrey, because since I took up a similar role in the Greenygrey everybody seems to want to go greenygreying with poor Packham.

Kate Humble and Me

Kate Humble gets a great perfect balance four-way greenygrey (Kate’s green top and green grass matched with the grey sign and wall) with Chris Packham captured in this image:

In this photo, Me looks like she sneaked the green bag into the photo once Chris was focusing on the camera to create a greenygrey foreground and background double.

I wonder if the man behind them is Me’s accomplice, getting in another grey to make it eight greenygreys by my reckoning (three greys in the jackets, together with sea and cloud, making five greys altogether, while the bag, trees and grass make three greens).

Greenygreying is of course still in its early years, and the scoring is therefore controversial. The sea could be classed as blue. Maybe one day we’ll have some kind of goal-line/magic eye technology to settle disputed calls.

Yeti and Me

Anyway, I have digressed, and now need a rest, without getting to the main story I’m here to present.

Swimming Polar Bear

Last night I watched a fascinating documentary about yetis in the Himalayas. This has relevance for the Greenygrey as it is also looking for its origins of course.

The Channel Four documentary Bigfoot Files featured DNA analysis of ‘yetis’ found in Ladakh and Bhutan by Professor Bryan Sykes.

The DNA matched that of modern polar bears, so they think yetis are real, and that they are bears descended from the same origins as polar bears before they separated 40,000 years ago.

It’s a great discovery, but I hope it doesn’t lead to more yeti hunting!

There have of course also been sightings of Greenygreys in the Himalayas, including one of Greenygreys congregated in a groupack:

Kate Humble By Nature, Greenygrey by Design

Hi, it’s Wolf Whitzer with a Greenygrey News (GGN) newsflash, in the style of Wolf Blitzer on CNN. For readers tuning in hoping for the first weekly episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps, as we reach that midweek time of the week, we had hoped to bring it to you this morning, but this great greenygreying story took precedence. We hope to bring it to you tomorrow.

Kate Humble By Nature

In front of a great greenygrey backdrop Kate Humble talked about her fascinating sounding new book Humble By Nature and doing lots of good nature and charity deeds in Britain and around the world in a great greenygrey top.

Humble By Nature Farm

Being the intrepid newshound you all know and love, I looked for a link to Kate Humble’s book, and found the website for the Humble By Nature farm Kate runs with her even more humble husband Ludo Graham.

I think the coolly named sounding game Ludo is even more humble than Kate, as it is only Kate on the website header; but she no doubt looks more photogenic, being a nice looking female… in greenygrey:

Charlie Stayt Greenygreying

Charlie Stayt showed that greenygrey fashion is unisex, and looks good casual or formal, by mirroring Kate on the other sofa wearing a smart dark grey suit and olive green tie.

Charlie

Susanna Reid didn’t get into the greenygreying spirit this morning to provide a greenygreying hat-trick, but perhaps a double is more apt for the Greenygrey.
