Dr Mumbo

Sun sets on Sunrise’s Cash Cow… for now

Dr Mumbo hopes Sunrise’s Cash Cow is getting all the counselling she needs after being put out to pasture – albeit for just a few weeks.

Telstra is reportedly stopping SMS to premium numbers such as those used by breakfast TV shows like Seven’s Sunrise for competitions.

Dr Mumbo hopes Cash Cow is welcomed to the farm currently inhabited by Pluck A Duck, Fat Cat, Humphrey B. Bear, Blocky, Big Dog and Prime Possum.

You would imagine with all that money stashed away in one of her four stomachs, Cash Cow might even be able to buy the farm.

One thing Dr Mumbo hopes is that Cash Cow won’t be forced back to work too soon, but rather be allowed to roam freely, without the threat of having to supply offspring for Australian Lamb, or front up to the reality show “I’m A Former TV Mascot, Get Me Out Of Here”. If things get really desperate, however, she could audition for The Masked Singer. That show could use more cowbell.
