First impressions -
I started buying "Nuts" magazine a few months ago now, after having to buy something cheap to get out of my local supermarkets car park. I saw this on the shelves, with a cover that contained picture of two beautiful women wearing.. well.. not a lot really! A picture of the Audi from then-new-film "I-Robot", and various bold headlines such as:
"Drug test cheats",
"Crushed to death! - the snake attack story"
"Whos out to get BECKS?"
All of the above things made me very interested in the magazine, so i picked up a copy. I have been buying it religiously every Thursday/Wednesday when the new copy is out now. So lets look in the most recent issue (15-21 October) and have a look inside...
I'm not just being boring and listing every page here. The contents page every week lists the regulars, the features, the football section, and of course news. In each section of the magazine you will find mostly the same stuff every week. Such as:
NEWS: This section contains information on the latest Gadgets such as the new generation PS2, and all the latest on Cars, and Biking. The latest issue also has a story on Johnny Vegas on the set of his new show. - 9/10
FOOTBALL: This section is do-what-it-says-on-the-tin really. Contains funny captions from matches, and general information on Premiership and Footballers. 6.5/10 - because im not really into football
REGULARS: Now this is the interesting bit, and all of the Regulars are very interesting/funny to read, and they are as follows:
"Ask the Secretary" - This is a section where you send in letters about your sex problems or experiences and they get answered by The Secretary. 9/10
"Jokes" - Pretty obvious what this is. Q:"What do you call a snake on viagra?" - A:"A walking stick!". Most of these jokes are funny, but i have seen 1 or 2 jokes repeated in Nuts. 8.5/10
"Letters" - Also obvious. Not much to say about this section really, its just letters, some funny, sent in from other readers of the magazine. 8/10
"Babe Ballot Box" - This is where you look at a few pictures of ladies, and you can vote for which one you think is fittest. Whichever babe gets the most votes goes to a photoshoot and her pictures appear in next weeks issue! 9/10
"Top Tens" - These are lists published about really weird stuff, from longest film names to Hip-hop rivalries (Tupac VS Notorious BIG), and weirdest web page names 9.5/10
"Ten-second reviews" - Unlike this op., these are a few sentences detailing info on the latest books, games and music, each with a star rating. 8/10
"Spambank" - Funny pictures sent in by readers. If yours is the best that appears in the magazine you can win a phone or a case of Corona beer! But again, i have seen a few pictures repeated in this section :-(. 8/20
"Pub Ammo" - This is a section of random facts no one needs to know but its fun to know them anyway. Did you know that if you bought a telephone directory within six metres of the gravitational pull of a black hole, it would weigh a million tons? This section also contains "Readers facts, tips and tricks". Trick - if your caught without an umbrella, go to any hotel lost and found and youll be given a choice of hundreds!. 10/10
FEATURES: Last of all is the features. They do stuff like features on the greatest con men ever, most wanted, the SAS, comedians, etc. Its all good. 9/10
So thats whats in the magazine. Also, sometimes the magazine has a special offer every now and again, where the magazine is only 60p instead of its regular £1.20p price, but the 60p issues tend to be the weaker ones, not as good as normal full-price issues of the weekly mag.
If you subscribe to the magazine you get a VERY good offer - 8 copies free! Thats 2 months, and a saving of £8.60. The magazines get delivered to your door every week, and you get refunded on un-mailed issues. You can subscribe by calling a number, or go to there website, where you can also sign up for the free online nuts newsletter -
But you can also subscribe using a send away coupon provided in the magazine each week.
This magazine is very good value for money - although sometimes jokes & pictures are repeated, which is definitley a big let-down. I would reccomend this to men OR women with a sense of humour who arnt just obsessed with Football and Ladies. I am giving this magazine an overall rating of 5 Stars.
