Let me tell you about A-list celebrity Katy Perry becoming an e-subscriber to the Washington Post, a story told in five exhibits. 

EXHIBIT A. Katy Perry goes to the dentist, apparently, and then finds out she can’t get the Washington Post, the one based in Washington, D.C., delivered to her home in California. “Problem”!!!!

EXHIBIT B. Showing the utmost professionalism, The Post’s customer service staff responds, essentially, “but 3,000 miles though.”

EXHIBIT C. PostVideo, which I’m not exactly sure how to format and hope I got it right by deleting the space in between, publishes this great little video under the “Department of Satire,” featuring Washington Post creative video member Dave Jorgenson. Best line: “Hurry, robots!”

EXHIBIT D. Very Important award-winning journalist Marty Baron — the former Boston Globe editor who was played by Liev Schreiber in the Spotlight movie, and who has been editor of the Washington Post since 2012 — is also Very Polite.

EXHIBIT E. The Post’s digital subscriptions, which impressively surpassed 1 million last year, grew by one.
