Other cities making the top 10 was Adelaide (tied 5th with Calgary, Canada) Sydney in the 7th spot, and Perth in 9th place.

It’s a timely reminder that Melbourne IS the best city in the world, after being crowned the Friendliest City in the world by Condé Nast Traveler.

Treasurer Joe Hockey is in strife after suggesting “poorest people either don't have cars or actually don't drive very far in many cases”.

“You know what I’d do if I was Joe Hockey? I’d attach monster truck tyres to my government car and just go and crush poor people’s cars,” Mick Molloy said on Triple M’s The Hot Breakfast.

“Then I’d stand out the front doing the Toyota ‘Oh What A Feeling’ with a cigar in my mouth.”

Social media lit up on Saturday night when the Channel 7 Saturday Night Footy team appeared wearing gloves.

"As you know Rosie I don't have social media in fact email's about as good as it gets but I occasionally get a text message," Luke Darcy said on Triple M's The Hot Breakfast.

"There's only one that came through from my wife, 'Are you f@#$ing kidding yourself', was the feedback."

"You should have seen him storm off to his chopper, it was unbelievable. He just got on and left straight after the game, the siren hadn't even blown," Mick Molloy said.

Shocking Front Page Photo

Eddie, Mick and Luke discuss the photo of Jihadist Khaled Sharrouf's son

A horrific photo has emerged online showing a seven year old Australian boy holding the severed head of a dead Syrian soldier.

The boy is the son of convicted terrorist Khaled Sharrouf and the caption reads ’That’s my boy’ (Triple M have decided not to publish the photo).

“Part of me says that you need to understand the savagery and the barbarism that is going on there,” Mick Molloy said on Triple M’s The Hot Breakfast.

“So we know what’s going on in the world and we know that this man has an Australian passport and could possibly come back and re-integrate with our community and be floating around on the tram you’re catching to work with or living in that suburb.”

“I’m really disturbed by this, I’m really upset and I don’t know what to do. That’s the most shocking photo.”
