The journalism+bands game

Dr Mumbo rather enjoys being a bit of a nerd, both as a wordsmith and as a music fan.

Which is why he likes the Twitter hashtag #copyeditorbands, which was trending nationally this afternoon.

It’s rather addictive… Jimi Appendix, anyone?

#copyeditorbands

Clearly produced by subbing departments not on a Friday afternoon deadline, the hashtag #copyeditorbands was trending third across Australia.
