Sax Appeal - Great on street, struggling on the web

This years UCT Rag's Sax Appeal sellers hit the street this morning in Cape Town.
The first year students dress up (kudos to those at the Meadowridge Engen, you looked good in those slinky outfits) and descend on the the various busy intersections around the city, coaxing as many people as possible to buy a magazine full of humourous, trivial and silly articles and cartoons. It's all for a good cause, the majority of the R20 charged goes to their charity SHAWCO a student run community development project.

The Sax Appeal mag is the largest student-run publication in the world selling around 50 000 copies each year.

I haven't had a chance to browse through my copy yet, but experience tells me that one's interpretation is very subjective and each year different people are disappointed and highly impressed.
So I thought I would rather point you to their online presence so you can get a feel for it yourself. Unfortunately their website still seems to be under construction which is a bit of a lost opportunity, nevertheless they do state that articles will start appearing after the 14th Feb and you can place an order should you wish to get your grubby paws on a copy.
