Will Ferrell on Hub Pages!

How I Found Out.

My suspicions began a few days after first reading so called "Mark Ewbie’s" Hubs. His stray remark prior to this on another person's Hub advertising “English lessons” had me laughing out loud here in the government state library (i.e. "If anyone wants some proper English lessons - Queen's speech and all that dear boy - then toddle off down the Busmen and Ferret watering hole and ask where "Tophole Ewbie" has got to"). This casual post led me to visually scan his hubs. On average I was getting the same amount of laughs as watching a movie by my favorite comedian Will Ferrell. For certain Hubs this averaged out to several "hard to suppress" laughs per minute, as well as several major belly laughs in a row at high points within very short time spans. I then began to seriously read his Hubs in earnest and found the same pattern occurring in almost every single Hub.

I became suspicious.

Due to a recent leg injury I had plenty of time to do the necessary research to follow up on my suspicions.

Even as I began to ruminate on these things I was still breaking into spontaneous bursts of uncontrollable laughter as I walked down the street, while brushing my teeth at home or trying to sleep! In fact I was unused to such laughter as I had not experienced it for a long time due to an ongoing family crisis. It was as if my body wasn't used to laughing any more and during these laughing attacks I had to be careful not to laugh at inopportune times to avoid choking or to appear publicly unusual. My "laughing gear" was like an old car engine spluttering to life with occasional gaseous back fires. Only Will Ferrell has ever had this comedic effect on me, or perhaps Jim Carey in his prime.

The humor I witnessed was far too distinctive and preternatural so I started examining all the nuances of so called “Ewbie’s” Hubs. I made a study of "Ewbie" humor.

Man-Child Art and Stick Figures.

The first thing to strike me was the continuous use of stick figure drawings combined with highly advanced humor. It took a long while for this to gel: the stick figures are actually a classic form of “misdirection” often used by stage magicians. This use of childlike stick figures is of the classic “man child” mentality: exactly paralleling Will Ferrell who is noted for his whimsical childlike nature. The stick figures often contain gems of comedy hidden in their simple almost clumsy execution. Their effect is similar to Lego figures combined with humor.

I recalled that I had seen these stick figures before but didn't pay enough attention and never bothered to read the excellent humor associated with them. My mistake.

Immediately the dominoes began to fall. Although “Ewbie” was obviously a false name, and many Hubbers of course use false names, it was the combination of this (and many other things) that rapidly put me on the trail of a famous celebrity. I checked the genealogy sites to make sure, and not a single "Ewbie" has ever been recorded as a surname. As with Ferrell's "Gary Sanchez" name we see the combination of a relatively normal Christian name with a funny twist for a surname that somehow manages to tickle our funny bone. Only this time the name "Ewbie" went too far and was just a shade too unbelievable, as if Ferrell wanted to be found out.

And where is "Mark Ewbie" stationed? Euroland!! I ask the reader to now pause for just a moment, close their eyes and imagine Will Ferrell pretending to type up a Hub, trying to be secretive, and coming up with Euroland. This could have only come out of the mind of Ferrell.

“Why would Will Ferrell be doing this?” I thought to myself. The only answer could be that Mr Ferrell is doing research about the internet, blogs and social media. He wants to find out what makes people laugh. Perhaps he also wants to succeed by himself without the considerable team of writers he always has around him. What better way to get "back to one's creative roots" than to start an anonymous Hub? Ferrell has proved that he really is a one man show with his Mark Ewbie Hubpages persona.

However I needed more evidence. This can be found by anyone as Mr Ferrell’s “fingerprints” are all over his Hubs: the style and nuance of his humor.

For example, so called “Mark Ewbie’s” Hub entitled “The Funny Story of How I Became a Lesbian”. Who else but Will Ferrell could write an inoffensive but highly funny Hub about the Gay theme? Who else could be so self-effacing? What other comedian has that strange ability to make people laugh without ever being offensive? EVERY ONE of "Ewbies" very numerous hysterically comical hubs listed on so called Mark Ewbies hub account has this character.

This is a constant theme in “Ewbie’s” Hubs: inoffensive humor that escapes any hurtful or distasteful subject matter. Exactly mirroring Will Ferrell's popular good guy behavior.

Of course the great Will Ferrell has one remote streak of indiscretion: jock humor. This can be found in hubs entitled “Ten Funny Fart Gags and Gas Jokes” and “How to Remove Your Head From Your Ass”. Need I say more?

A frequent use of cute dogs and cute dog themes also haunts the films and humor of Ferrell. Sure enough we find in “Ewbie’s” Hubs several cute dog themes.

In one of his tongue in cheek questions we see the theme of “pipe smoking”, another of Ferrell’s frequent comedy props. (" Is a pipe still fashionable for men? We all know that smoking is cool. But is a pipe better than a cigarette for impressing the ladies?").

There are many other Hubs to choose from but I have listed a few more here so the reader can get the feel of where I am going with this: "Funny and Annoying Optical Illusions and IQ Tests" and "Humorous Tips for Picking Up Women In Stores" and "How to Win Internet Arguments: Best Tips for Funny Forum Fighting".

Many other facts kept occurring to me including the fact that both Will Ferrell and his online persona on Hubpages both made inroads into the internet at exactly the same time four years ago!

Need I say more?

After contacting high ranking CEO's from several film companies I was able to get what I wanted to almost clinch the deal: no comment!!

Postscript

The only possible alternative viewpoint regarding these observations is that Mark Ebwie is just another struggling Hubber with the same comedic powers of a Will Ferrell.

A part time writer who can in his spare hours write high quality work equivalent to a team of comedy writers for a legendary star?

I don't think so!

If this is the case it would be incumbent upon us to assist struggling talent.

      The pipe connection proves the Ewbie/Ferrell connection as does the other numerous facts.

      Oh I don't doubt you worked this out while smoking a pipe. The question is, what did you have stuffed in the pipe at the time? I have my suspicions.

      Alicia.

      thankyou.

      It's all about pipes people!

      Sherlock smoked a pipe too in order to work things out.

      If possible we can help expose so called Ewbie so he can get his just desserts. No one can be that funny and get away with it unscathed.

      This is so funny! I think that you have definitely proved that Will Ferrell and Mark Ewbie are the same person. Your deduction powers are awesome!

      Funny hub. I had a few laughs admittedly some were due to the stick drawings. Haven't read Mark Ewbie for a while, but I haven't been on hubpages for a while. Must check out his latest writings.

      If I'm wrong at least Markus Ewbius gets some help. If that's not Will Ferrell he is just as funny as Ferrell so he deserves the attention.

      I hear Elvis and Michael Jackson have hub accounts under pseudonyms too, and Shakespear didn't write his own hubs, but had a team of comedy writers, who were regularly rotated with his team of tragedy writers. I guess if anything you have everybody flocking over to Ewbie's profile now. Interesting speculation.

      yeah he likes to be "normal" like the rest of us.

      Isn't the internet a wonderful leveller?

      I want him to make a film called "Him" about a lonely guy who has an online romance with a sweaty Russian male con artist who uses voice transformation technology to change his voice into a females'.

      Starring Will Ferrell as the sweaty Russian, and Borat as the lonely guy.

      I can assure you the facts presented here are 100% correct. This has been confirmed online. Believe it.....or not.

      Dear Headly... you have me quite perplexed. Are *you kidding? And if not, have you never heard of tongue in cheek?

      Oz, I disagree with your findings as I have been stalking Mark for a few years now, and from my vantage point (the tree in his yard) I can assure you he is not Will Ferrell, but I am not at liberty to reveal his identity. I can tell you there is a cape involved, but that is *all I can tell you.

      I have tried to contact Mr Ferrell for comment and I am waiting for a return call.

      "Mark Ewbie" is pretending nothing is happening re "move along nothing to see here folks", while slowly winding back his Hubs. Suspicious?

      This was a well written hub. What does your subject think of it? Has he read it?

    • Insightful Tiger profile image

      Insightful Tiger 2 years ago

      Okay Oz,

      I checked out his hub on being banned from Reddit. It was too funny! I'll need to do more research, before I can fairly guess/vote on whether he is or he isn't Will Ferrell.

      Keeping it Scientific ;)

      I don't make any money form HP as I have well under the required minimum 10 Hubs.

      If getting hits to my Hubs is part of the game that is permissible by HP rules and also a requirement of HP to stay online. ie not unethical.

      If anyone makes a few extra bucks from the Hub it would either be

      1. Will Ferrell, who doesn't need the money, or

      2. Mark Ewbie, perhaps just another struggling comedy writer.

    • HeadlyvonNoggin profile image

      Jeremy Christian 2 years ago from Texas

      I'm pretty sure Oz isn't anyone you should wonder about. I'd like to think Will Ferrell would have more going on in his life to spend the amount of time chatting on the internet that Oz and I have.

    • Insightful Tiger profile image

      How do we know you yourself are not Will Ferrell?How do we know you are not just trying to channel readers to another one of your hub accounts to get feedback? I mean, I am interested now. I think Will Ferrell is brilliant! However, now I'm wondering about you!

      Dressage

      I don't make any money on HPas I am well short of the 10 hub requirement.

      Perhaps my ego likes to show how clever I am at solving mysteries. "Ewbie" is pretending nothing is happening. "Move along, nothing to see here" etc.

      Knowls

      I am sure there would be many many incognito IDs on HP which adds proof to my assertion.

      It is interesting for the next reader to see that this Hub was actually featured by Mark Ewbie so maybe all three of them are Will Ferrell and it is one large conspiracy to add interest while gaining readers and thereby increase their overall income from HP!

      Unamed

      It is easy to check that "I am me" by making a few checks on the HP record.

      I am hoping that Will Ferrell fans will compare "Ewbies" humour. It may be harder for a non fan to appreciate the similarity.

      David Hunt 2 years ago from Cedar Rapids, Iowa

      I never got Will Ferrell's appeal, let alone his sense of humor. Mark Ewbie is a frustrated, angry commentator/doodler author/artiste who is hilarious. Oz, come on. YOU'RE Mark Ewbie, aren't you?

    • HeadlyvonNoggin profile image

      Jeremy Christian 2 years ago from Texas

      The issue I have, Oz, is that you didn't know that. You thought you had some information you felt needed to be made public. It's simply a matter of respect for others. If you were to write under a pseudo-name, if you wanted to keep your actual name secret, how would you prefer people who maybe know who you are to act? To spill the beans in the interest of making themselves look good in some way, or to respect your wishes?

      Headly

      Perhaps things have now changed. If you read those hubs "Ewbie" says he is now winding things back and stated this some time ago.

    • HeadlyvonNoggin profile image

      Jeremy Christian 2 years ago from Texas

      Huh? It seems to me that if he's writing under a false name he probably wants to be anonymous. I imagine he probably just wants honest feedback on things he writes. If people knew who he was he wouldn't get honest feedback. Everybody would probably be falling over themselves to tell him how great everything he says is. Sometimes honest feedback can be hard to come by, but no less valuable.

      There are some very discrete discussions going on behind the scenes.

      Lets just say "a nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse".

    • HeadlyvonNoggin profile image

      Jeremy Christian 2 years ago from Texas

      Come on, Oz, if this is true, why would you out him like this? Can the man not just anonymously hub? Does it really require you dedicating a hub to it?
