punchon

When it comes to the evening entertainment of choice for Sydneysiders, heading into the Cross before throwing down a few bourbons, then throwing a few punches and finally throwing up in the back of a cab on the way home was always at the top. But the introduction of new lockout laws in NSW threatened to stop that. Here’s how […]

Discover the magic of Melbourne’s laneways, Australia’s most enchanting open sewer
discover

Melbourne’s laneways are a piece of Europe in our own backyard. A piece of Europe where you can see happy revellers relieving themselves on a Chinese restaurant’s latest vegetable delivery. A piece of Europe where people still use milk crates as quirky furniture pieces by day, and booze-soaked battalions use them to launch at any target at night.  And a piece of […]

ANZAC propaganda posters if they really knew what they were fighting for
aktifmag_VB

WAR – Get the footy jumper, eat the limited edition hot dog. Anzac Day – it’s now a big business. But as QANTAS and Woolworths know sometimes trying to make the most of it has its pitfalls. But it’s not just exploitative marketing departments having a torrid time. The cleaners at Gallipoli have to pick up everyone’s crap and the […]

Should gays be allowed to eat at Nandos near schools?
pretty-girl-pondering

The UK paper the Mirror bills itself as ‘The intelligent tabloid’, it even has its own customised hashtag #madeuthink. Gone are the days when the Mirror would do a preview report on a European football team’s fans, claiming they liked to wear shoes on their heads and sing songs about little potatoes, before it was revealed the incorrect information came from a vandalised wikipedia entry. Now, […]

Shane Crawford looking like a complete tit
509768-shane-crawford

The AFL football show is a throwback to Aussie TV’s golden period of the 70s and 80s. When entertainment actually meant that – blokes blowing smoke up each other’s arses, dishing out the toilet and racist humour before dressing up as women and grabbing each other on the cocks. Luckily, for us, zany Shane Crawford has been shining a beacon on that […]

It’s no virtual reality sex machine but here’s last year’s Famous Thinkers Quoting Herald Sun Readers
naomi

Every year we collect the best comments from our @heraldsunreader twitter feed for a special ‘Famous Thinkers Quoting Herald Sun Readers’ post.

Not a mug.  To say […]

You won’t believe what this leopard did when it realised it was going to be on YouTube.
leopa

You’re not meant to look into the camera pal. Closely related to lions and tigers, leopards are usually know for their grace and power. Sure, the leopard is a strong creature that often hauls their kills – up to three times their own weight – up trees. However, where they are not so mighty or comfortable is when in front of the camera, as […]

QUIZ: Is this a quote from someone important or is it just an actor tossing on?

Ben Ham last week. Who hasn’t thought ‘Fuck it, today I’d love to do the complete opposite of what I am supposed to do at work’, whether it’s a fire fighter sitting back and enjoying the flames or a diving operator deliberately leaving behind a couple of yank tourists in the middle of the Pacific? Well, illustrator and AKTIFMAG’s go-to-man Mr Ben […]

thesunuk14

The Sun UK recently posted a story on their Facebook page about a nutbag in China killing a bunch of puppies at a market. The Sun then invited readers to have their say. In between giving their opinion on the Chinese, wondering if Calvin Klein was going to distance himself from it (as the offender was wearing a CK t-shirt) and calling […]
