Dr Mumbo

George Clooney and NANA has a new phone number

Dr Mumbo gets dozens of press releases every day, but in the last couple of days there have been a couple whose subject lines warranted further inspection.

The first came from publicist to the stars Max Markson, and was captioned simply ‘George Clooney’.

Wondering whether George had finally agreed to present a session at BE Fest he opened it and scanned the email, only to discover it was actually about a “revolutionary new development in entertainment technology” in Sydney which would be “perfect if you want to host a visiting star like George Clooney or Angelina Jolie”. Dr Mumbo will certainly bear that in mind next time he’s entertaining a Hollywood A-lister.

Another doozy came simply entitled “NANA has a new phone number”. This one was momentarily confusing, given Dr Mumbo’s Nana has been pushing up daisies for a good few years now. 

On closer inspection it transpires it was the Newsagent’s Association of New South Wales & ACT. Of course!

Anyway, if anyone is interested their new number is 02 9075 4692. But don’t panic, NANA’s fax number is still the same.
