BONDI AMUSEMENT PARK FAILS TO RAISE WINTER’S BONE

Having just returned from a trip to Hobart’s Dark Mofo festival, I lobbed up to Bondi for brunch with a friend at Speedo’s and was immediately confronted by a large erection in the middle of the beach. Such a sight is not uncommon in the summer months when amorous backpackers take to the bay and […]

LOCAL COMIC VICTORIA ZERBST PROVES THE DICKHEADS WRONG

If we had a dollar for every time we’d heard some dude shrug and say, “Women just aren’t funny, man,” we would literally have all the dollars in the world.

In fact, upon doing a bit of research I found that the historical average low temperature in winter is around 8 degrees Celcius, […]

Letters July 2017

BARKING MAD Dear Beast, Thank you for giving us the opportunity to voice our views. I live in a lovely part of Bronte, which is being spoilt by dogs barking day and night, especially at night. Selfish and irresponsible neighbours are leaving their dogs out where they bark for hours on end, which completely spoils […]
