Is nothing sacred…?

Dr Mumbo was saddened to see that even Australian radio institution, Triple J’s The Doctor, has been subjected to the onslaught of the disgruntled social media user, based, it would appear on one man’s dislike of vegans.

The comment:

Hey “The Doctor”Thanks for ruining what should have been an awesome weekend of live music on the radio with your incessant dribble about how many bands you’ve “jammed” with on stage or one of your “zany” stories from the road like when you “lived on the edge” and ate a chicken satay stick at a BBQ because they were all out of Tofu.
Your constant self promoting douchebaggery is a blight on an otherwise great radio station, it’s not all about you mate.

SincerelyThe Entire Australian Population.

  2. Tim, I wouldn’t say that. This guy, aka, “The Entire Australian Population” seems to be more against The Doctor’s narcissism. The veganism thingy is just the icing on the cake – the thing that pushed him over, so to speak.

    It’s been a long time since I’ve listen to JJJ. I stopped cause I couldn’t stand The Doctor, ironically.

  4. 11000 Likes and more than 1000 comments, sounds like maybe the guy was right.

    As a fan of the Doctor i dont get it but.. them’s the numbers.

    Mind you, social media” likes” etc need to to taken in context, the world…(and the ad industry in particular) must to start to recognise that social media needs to be judged by the KONY12 rules.

  8. I have no problem with the Doctor, but he does occasionally remind me of the old joke

    How do you spot a Vegan at a dinner party?

    Don’t worry, they’ll let you know.
