Life after subs

While Dr Mumbo is always a little cautious of images that arrive via forwarded email or Facebook sharing, this has been sent to him three times this morning and does appear to be genuine.

If so, it would appear that News Limited’s reduction of sub editors at the Geelong Advertiser is not going entirely according to plan.

  2. Two things: 1) It’s “Fairfax”, not “Farifax” and 2) the Geelong Advertiser is actually owned by News Limited.

  4. 1) The Geelong Addy is a News Ltd paper
    2) “Farifax’s” – see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muphry's_law

  6. What is more amazing is that Dr Mumbo thinks that Fairfax publishes the Geelong Advertiser. Er, that would be News.

  10. Hi Scott,

    My bad (I originally said Fairfax – now updated. If only I had access to a sub…)

    Cheers,
