    Advancing on the Haka

    I used to love the Haka. Our Society is so female dominant with lies and manipulations a way of life, I used to say the Haka is so honest. Teams get fined if they advance on the Haka. But when Kiwis use throat slitting gestures, Adam Blair carrying a weapon advances on the other Team and one...

    Milk "made by cow milk"

    A new milk has been introduced to NSW starting today called Made by cow. Since it's still illegal to sell raw milk for human consumption in Australia, some of the wording on their website is less than honest in my opinion. Check it out for yourself...

Like 4 different variations of cable curls. I see this as pointless but then again I have little experience...

    What if advertising were more honest? Clif Dickens shows us with Honest Slogans blog

    A CATCHY slogan can do a lot of good when you're trying to sell a product. That said, a witty fake slogan can make for excellent satire. Clif Dickens, a graphic designer who clearly has a keen sense of humour, has latched onto that principle by creating a blog called Honest...
