FYBF Featured Flogger – Mumabulous

by mamagrace71 on December 14, 2012

I’m sure many of you are now familiar with our seventh FYBF Featured Flogger, the fabulous Mumabulous.

If you haven’t, get with it! She’s delectably funny, with a sharp wit and a relentless crush on Michael Fassbender (Humana, humana!)

You can find the lovely lady flittering over at Facebook but for now, enjoy her side splitting post! Leave lots of comment love because you know it’s the thang to do, right?

Postcards From The Blog

In its short life my blog Mumabulous has been quite an adventure. For me the blogging experience is a bit like backpacking (unfortunately without the drunken shenanigans) in that it’s been undertaken purely for the joy of the journey rather than to reach any set destination. Here are a couple of postcards from the trip.

The London Olympics provided my stats with another much needed boost.  In celebration of the event I put together a mish mash of medal worthy Olympic humor. I mentioned that I was “childishly amused” by a Kenyan long distance runner with a funny name – Mr Mahboob. If only my own boob could attract so much attention. With the London cauldron long since extinguished I’m still picking up searches for “Mahboob” nearly every day.  Mahboob and I even caused a bit of a stir on Twitter. Some bright young thing tweeted the following enticing invitation “Click here to see a picture of Mah Boob”. You can imagine the punters’ disappointment when they were taken Mumabulous and treated to this.

The raunchy phenomena that is 50 Shades of Grey has also done much to arouse (snigger) interest in Mumabulous. I have no qualms about  jumping on a bandwagon. Despite not having read that book I blogged about my own interpretation with a post titled “Fifty Shades of Earl Grey”.  It basically described my steamiest fantasy involving of course Micheal Fassbender  (that goes without saying. I’m completely Fass-incated).  Foreplay would be a strenuous session in Chez ‘Abulous bathroom with Fass scrubbing all the mold from the tile grout. The scouring would slowly build to a climax where Fass would serve up multiple cups of tea.  It seems that a lot of people are on board with this concept. I’m still getting several searches per week for “Fifty Shades of Earl Grey” not to mention the odd Fass related inquiry. Whoever googled “Michael Fassbender, well endowed” is certainly on my wavelength.

The moral is blog fans – be very careful what you write because you just never know who will be reading.  I’m holding my breath waiting for a commenting from Fass!

Ummm, who is Michael Fassbender? Is it terrible that I don’t know?
Right, I’ve just googled him, but I’m afraid I still don’t recognise him. Oh well….
I had a little snicker from Mahboob too. I’m not surprised that your stats did well with that one :)

Poor Mr Mahboob. He’s probably got some kind of complex.

I love Mumabulous! I’d forgotten all about the Earl Grey post – that was comedy brilliance! Mah Boob – classic! Top marks Mumabulous!

Comedy brilliance is probably a bit strong Catherine – but it was fun to write.

Yey, who the hell is Michael Fass?? He’s obviously someone amazing but has never crossed my radar. Love the Mahboob tweet, v. cheeky … v. game … Love ya work sista xx


Mumabulous December 14, 2012 at 2:26 pm

If I have achieved anything with my humble blog – it has been to slightly elevate Michael Fassbender’s profile amongst middle aged Mums.

Mahboob. I can hear my inner teacher telling me that is wrong and immature to laugh at people’s names just because of my limited experience of the wider world … BAHAHAHAHA! Go Mumabulous, you’re fabulous :)


Mumabulous December 14, 2012 at 2:27 pm

There was a Japanese gymnast called Takeshita. I thought that was funny too.

Michael Fassbender is the upside to being dragged along to your husband’s choice of movie, like X-Men and Prometheus.

Hello Grace and Mumabulous! What a combination. Thanks for entertaining me on a Friday morning x
(Oh, and I don’t get the Michael Fassbender thing. I’d apologise, but it means less competition for you, right?!)

I love read Mumabulous blog posts! I believe his name is pronounced Ma-eh-boob which means in Arabic: the loved one. But I much prefer pronounce it Mah boob, much more funny!!!

That’s what happens when you fall out of the loop. I’m now going to have to read the final published edition of “Fifty shades of Earl Grey”- the thought of someone to clean my moldy bathroom is overwhelming…and followed by tea. Mumabulous – you are well on the way to being a star in your own rights – with a little help from Mr Mahboob.

“Harder, harder” I commanded as his manly scrubbing brush penetrated my tile grout. How could any woman resist dialogue like that?

This year’s Olympics was a feast of unfortunate names. This tweet from Paul Eacott sums it up perfectly.
“After Bo the archer, the cyclists called Wong Wai and Rich Fellers the equestrian, the faller in the 400m hurdles was called Stambolova.”

Mumabulous, I somehow missed your Olympic post – how did I let that happen? But at least I do know the Fass from his work in Hex and completely understand your Fass-cination with him!

You have that knack for words – hard to believe some people go to college for that and still come up with something like “i-Pad” or unmemorable names like Colin whats-his-nuts? Now excuse me while I Google your boob.


The Not So Super Mama December 15, 2012 at 8:49 am

Today I had to share a post about the unspeakable tragedy that happened today. I know all of our hearts are broken for the parents and children, and we will hold our babies tight in our arms tonight. (I didn’t do a link back in my post this week because it just felt a little weird to do so this time)

Do you *really* wish your boob was more popular than Mahboob? Somehow I don’t know that you’d love that kind of attention. I also don’t know who Michael F is… but anyone who can scrub grout like a demon is my kind of guy.
