Dr Mumbo

Seth and Zac and Laurel and Britney

For those who don’t spend 24 hours a day in the blogosphere, you’re going to need the back story to understand why this is funny. Otherwise it’ll be like coming in on The Wire, half way through the third season.

Allow Dr Mumbo to help you with the story so far…

Seth Godin is a remarkably good US-based writer/ thinker/ blogger. He writes an excellent blog here. His fans can be remarkably devoted.

Britney Spears is a remarkably talked about US-based singer. When she went off the rails, one of her devoted fans created this:

Zac Martin is a remarkably young, talked-about Australian blogger. He writes an excellent blog here.

Laurel Papworth is a remarkably grumpy social media stormtrooper. But she writes a very good blog here.

Got it so far? Good.

So Laurel doesn’t like Seth, because Seth doesn’t allow comments on his blog, which she thinks is bad. So Seth tried to be nice, and sent Laurel a lovely message on her blog. But Laurel was mean to him, put her fingers in her ears, and told him she couldn’t hear him.
