Dr Mumbo

Andrew Broad to the rescue

Dr Mumbo knows that December is often a time when politicians fall on their swords, but even he couldn’t have predicted the ‘Sugar Baby’ scandal which has engulfed Nationals MP Andrew Broad.

The politician is accused of using an app – which pairs rich, older men with company and wealth-seeking younger women – during a taxpayer-funded trip abroad. He allegedly told one suitor: “I’m a country guy so I know how to fly a plane, ride a horse, fuck my woman”. 

The youth-orientated websites of Australia have already had a field-day with Broad’s particular brand of sexy-texting, however today Dr Mumbo would like to draw readers’ attention to The Australian.

If a would-be reader of The Australian gets lost along the way, and finds themselves on the 404 error page, they are greeted by a politician, who explains the error in their own unique way.

Broad is now no exception, with The Australian quick to use him to entertain its lost readers. The latest 404 message reads: “G’day mate. I’m a country boy so I know how to ride a horse, fly a plane and… fix this link!”

Now, so that Dr Mumbo can enjoy his Christmas, let’s never speak of riding horses, flying planes or…. fixing links…. again!
