ISSUE #1

A ‘ZINE ABOUT METICULOUS WORKERS. [AND ANTS.]


HET ANTWOORD This magazine is literally for people who are obsessed with detail. We are obsessed with random shit and details and ants. It’s our job here at 72andSunny. So we made a ‘zine that does exactly that. Putting together random shit and ants with great detail. We’re proud to present our very first issue for ant, detail and nit-picking lovers.

THE ORIGINAL ANTFUCKER STORY Picture the scene: a man had parked his car on the sidewalk to quickly withdraw some cash from an ATM. When the man got back to his car, a traffic warden was already writing out a fine. You’d be angry, right? Well, sure enough, the man got angry and called the warden a ‘miereneuker’, which translates from Dutch as ‘antfucker’. ‘Nit-picker’ in English parlance, ‘enculeur de mouches’ en Français…the term crosses borders in equally weird and wonderful language ways. But back to that Mierenneuker warden. Well, he felt offended and threatened, so promptly had the driver arrested by the police.

Enjoy anting reading, The Editors Valentina Mandozzi Mareka Stake Mark Jenkins

The driver refused to pay the 220 Euro fine and went to court with it. Based on the authoritative Dutch dictionary Van Dale, he concluded that the word ‘miereneuker’ is not offensive. The judge on his case said that a ‘miereneuker’ or ‘muggenzifter’ is a person who is very meticulous at his job. His ruling was that the remark was inappropriate, but the traffic warden could have interpreted ‘miereneuker’ as a compliment too.

Antfuckers love detail enough to scan QR codes.

FAMILY LARVA White and grubby.

QUEEN ANT Has a Kim Kardashian ass. Gives birth every day.

MALE ALATE

Gets pampered by her slaves like she owns the world.

Needs to be carried around and cleaned like a baby. Also basically useless (unless you are a weaver ant.)

Sex slave. Dies after losing virginity.

REPLETE

Basically useless.

The most miserable slave in the colony. Force fed until they could explode. Has to boringly hang from a wall for its entire life.

WORKER Actual slave forced to serve a dictator who you can’t replace. Has to spend days in the scorching hot sun and do back breaking labour. Doesn’t get paid or rewarded in any way.

MAJOR/SOLDIER

SUPER MAJOR

Big slave.

The biggest and toughest slaves.

Forced to risk their lives for an evil tyrant.

Living transport for smaller ants.

Has to witness their siblings die in front line combat.

First line of defence, so always gets killed first. ACTIVIST CORNER: Although ants are frustrating when they get into your home or when you’re having a picnic, ants do help the environment.

ERVIEW AGONY We sat down with RENÉ REDZEPI, Head Chef at Noma in Copenhagen, and heavy user of ants.

“I’m getting bullied in the colony. What can I do?”

Antfucker: So René, we’re really interested in why you included ants in your cooking. Can you elaborate on the detail? You’re obviously very passionate about that...

Antastasia Super-Major, 31.

René: I have to believe there is greater meaning to my life than just providing forty people with sustenance every evening. Antfucker: So there’s meaning to the ants then? They’re not just an Instagram ploy for your restaurant?

“I’m not an ant abuser, they’re my best friends”

René: No, they have great value. Taste-wise. They add salt and flavour to our dishes. Antfucker: Wow, never knew that. Tell us more.

René: You know when you work hard, you sweat? And it has that salty tang? Well, ants work super fucking hard. So you’re basically eating ant sweat. It’s an amazing ingredient to work with. It’s the taste of attention to detail. I love it. I’m a total antfucker.

Agony Ant: Firstly it’s great that you’re speaking up about it to someone, well done.It’s the first step to making your life as an unappreciated worker much better. Next, I’d tackle the bully head on about it, as there’s an outside chance they don’t realise they’re being an asshole to you. And then if that doesn’t work, head straight to your HR Queens and make it their job to sort it out and get the bully back in line. Go get ‘em!

“I feel useless in my role. How can I get some more optimism and positivity in my life?” Anthony Replete, 19. Agony Ant: Oh sweetie, you are the farthest thing from useless, let me tell you. We all have a role to play in life, whether we are cogs in a machine or the beautiful, shiny output from it. Just focus on the detail, and remind yourself daily of every little accomplishment. And you’ll soon find that they all add up to a big pile of awesome. Proud of you already!

“People say I’m a bit of a nitpicker and that I should relax and let it go. Should I listen to them?” Antgela Queen, 26. Agony Ant: Absolutely not darling. When people are too nice, and don’t really say what they mean, then it gets us nowhere. Nitpickers are important people to have around. Without us, shit falls through the cracks and life as we know it generally falls apart. So I say keep on ‘mierenneuking’ with pride. I’ve got your back.

Antfucker: Thanks Rene, we certainly agree! Ants are social insects of the family Formicidae and, along with the related wasps and bees, belong to the order Hymenoptera

PULL-OUT POSTER

FACTS

SURPRISING (MAYBE?) THINGS ABOUT OUR FRIENDS, ANTS: There are more than 12,000 species of ants all over the world. An ant can lift 20 times its own body weight. If a second grader was as strong as an ant, she would be able to pick up a car! Some queen ants can live for many years and have millions of babies!

When foraging, ants leave a pheromone trail so that they know where they’ve been. Queen ants have wings, which they shed when they start a new nest. Ants don’t have lungs. Oxygen enters through tiny holes all over the body and carbon dioxide leaves through the same holes. When the queen of the colony dies, the colony can only survive a few months. Queens are rarely replaced and the workers are not able to reproduce.

Ants don’t have ears. They "hear" by feeling vibrations in the ground through their feet. When ants fight, it is usually to the death!

Fire ants cause over £3 billion worth of damage a year!

There are over 12,000 ant species worldwide
