“The internets” makes Mombat happy

Mombat with some of the many cards she receivedWhen I happened to mention that it was Mombat’s 88th birthday recently, Twitter fans of the Wombatian mothership rushed to congratulate her. She was pleasantly surprised, mildly puzzled, and filled with smiley happy at the cards she received addressed to ‘Mombat’.*

You know, this is the sort of thing you should show those who whinge at how awful Twitter has become – it hasn’t; they just follow the wrong people.

* don’t worry, I only gave her address to trustworthy chums
