Bogans love watching gameshows that require absolutely no skill.
They believe that games like ‘Deal or No Deal’ do in fact require a great deal of skill, such as knowing whether or nor to trust in your ‘instinct’. They also put great faith in what complete strangers ‘feel’ are in their cases. They believe they can master the game in much the same way they can master Poker Machines.
Bogans also love this show for its use of the sound ‘Booyah!’ which many have appropriated to express joy in their daily lives.

31 12 2010
lainy

Oh my god, yes! Deal or No Deal is the single most ridiculous spectacle on television. All the contestants preface their answers with ‘I think I have…’. NO. You don’t THINK, you GUESS! You cannot think, that requires logical reasoning which cannot be done in this game beyond not saying the numbers that have already been chosen. There is no thinking, and therefore no skill involved!

So, basically, in one way or another, everyone is a bogan… Except people who waste their lives playing video games, and homosexuals who waste their lives playing video games…

Whoever wrote this, well done on being too supressed to function on any level. Clearly, you are anti-exercise, anti-alcohol, anti-going outdoors, anti-travel, anti-contribution, anti-sex, anti-sports, etc. Or maybe these are just things you have discovered you are no good at, and therefore, in a lame, nerdy, and complete fail effort to substantiate yourself as superior in some way, shape or form, you spent hours writing this massive piece of fail.
I couldn’t help but notice, World of Warcraft isn’t in the list. Ironic really.

Matty,

I agree with Matty. It also seems that you’re a bogan if you like anything or dislike people who dislike anything. So what country is this ‘creator of bogan identification’ from? My thoughts on this website is Epic Fail!

11 11 2011
Jesse

God, I agree! To be honest, I’ve looked through this site’s criteria for boganism and I have to say that Australian citizenship is sufficient to guarantee it. If you are an Australian then you are certainly a bogan….

12 11 2010

Is that how you measure greatness Matty? By being able to impress people with your awesomeness? That could well be another definition of a bogan.

No, it’s not about being intimidated…it’s about pointing and laughing at the mediocrity that so many out there confuse as success.

A Fair Go.

Bogans love the concept of “A Fair Go”. The rough translation to intellectual english language is “the government owes me a living”.

11 02 2011
Ash - Glasser of Carnts

The Fair Go, of course, being restricted to white Ozzie bogans.

The idea that immigants or homos or reffos or that should get a fair go? Nah.

James Hunter

Matt,
“From each according to his capacity and to each according to his need ” (Karl Marx)
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you ” (The Golden rule as found in the Christian Bible and as is found in various religions back to antiquity.)

Just think if we all followed this advice the Bogan alnong with the rest of us would have nothing to complain about.

Instead we live in a rampantly capitalist society where the rule appears to be ” Screw everyone before they can screw you” No wonder we are all a lot of sick puppies.

21 11 2010
Matt

I think Bogans assassinated JFK, James.

As soon as the Bogan heard “ask not what your Country can do for you, but what you can do for your Country..” the Bogans hired Lee Harvey Oswald and the rest is history.

My point is that a Bogan has an innate pespective that the world, the government and “the system” owes them a living. The catch-cry is “a fair go”.

Please discuss your anti-capitalist sentiments elsewhere.

In the spirit of your “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you ” ideaology, I will offer you the following suggestion : Read some Nietzsche rather than Marx. Life will make more sense.

Huh! I thought bogans liked things like Cold Chisel, Bon Jovi, AC/DC, Jim Beam (white label), Wild Turkey, Jack Daniels, VB Beer, Draught tinnies, Stubbies, Thongs (sometimes with socks), ugg boots (especially the lace up ones), BBQ’s, Bon fires, V8 cars (especially the older ones) and usually go by the name of Shazza, Dazza, Kazza, Wazza. The list above describes people who are insucure and feel the need to follow trends. (which is basicly everyone).

F’in awesome. Picked up your book a few weeks ago. Mackay is full of nouveau riche 21st century bogans, and the online quick list of “what bogans like” reads like a description of the “likes” of the people I’m surrounded by here. One by one I went through the list and thought, “check”, “yeah, mate,” “there’s another one,” “got that”, and so on. I’m going to bring it with me to the Sydney north shore area when I go back for Chrissie, and show it to my friends to illustrate the shockingly foreign land I’m now living in. The sad thing is, this bogan thang appears to be contagious. I’ve been here less than 5 months and already I, a 38 year old who doesn’t have Kylie’s arms, am going out in public in studded singlets, drinking XXXX, expanding my knowledge of Pink’s song catalog, admiring large flat screen TV’s at Harvey Norman, and the other day I actually purchased an Ed Hardy purse.

But about “bogans like fascinators”…. most Aussies who are on-trend and don’t have $2000 to drop on a couple new race hats for the season like fascinators because $500 goes a lot further in the fascinator world than it does in the hat world.

29 11 2010

Oh, and regarding Brendan Fevola, most bogans around here (QLD) would say, “We like who?”. QLD is a League state.

Also missing is the obvious association between our convict past and bogan(ism).

Since moving to hillbilly Queensland two years ago (from WA) it has become apparent that the east coast is a hot bed for convict descendents.

Look up Mary Wade and her progeny…all bogans, all in NSW and Queensland. They have particular phenotypes – the skinny, thin lipped, ranga, Pauline Hanson type is one of them. Another is the thick neck, thick kneed, cowboy hat & flannelette wearing, rugby devotee…often bogan mixed with rural.

There’s thousands of them over here and they all came from Mary.

Hides, your sterotyping of the bogan as ‘poor’ is wrong. If you read the ‘What is a bogan today?’ page, you’ll find bogans nowadays are cashed up wankers, rather than your somewhat snobbish sterotype of a walfare recipient.

I found this rather belatedly. All I can say is that I trust all of you have seen family photographs, of the sort which depict your grandparents or even great grand-parents looking dignified on their wedding day. I have compiled a collection of just this sort of thing.

Panicking about Paedophile rings on their facebook with status warnings like this:

Tombarina

Thirded.

What is it with CuBs and their obsession with paedophilia? Suddenly, there’s one lurking behind every rock, shrub and grassy knoll?

The research indicates peadophilic activity is no more prevalent now than 50yrs ago, and probably slightly less so. It’s just that we hear about it more.

My Beloved is a professional news photographer, and you should see the death stares he gets if he happens to be walking to a job, several large cameras slung over his shoulder, within 300 yards of JaXXXson or Maddyhsynnnn. He’s been confronted by morons demanding to see his Blue Card – as he’s WALKING to a job, not actually shooting. Of course, this would no doubt be how a paedophile would surrepticiously blend in – by wearing a vest with PHOTOGRAPHER plastered across it, and lugging $40k worth of camera gear.

Interestingly, this neurotic reaction is almost exclusively confined to the “aspirational” suburbs comprised solely of new estates – the ticky-tack McMansions, the overfinanced cars, the Juicy Couture mums, the kids with stupid names. Never has he encountered this in the inner city.

Bogans relly love Christmas time, and pimping up their cars. Either with those reindeer horns, and cute little red noses……..or even better, by decorating their cars with tinsel, beads, etc. I saw one the other day with a Xmas trees lining the back of a bogans car.

Or maybe the person who decorates their car for Christmas loves the season and want so spread goodwill to mankind?

Occasionally I get on a bus that’s decked out with mad Christmas decorations and I think its pretty cool!

I have a fully fledged Bogan sister-in-law, and I have some classics that must make the list:
Arriving to your wedding in a Mack truck or on a Harley, or in either a Ford or Holden Sports edition.
KFC on a Thursday night.
Buying your kids 237 Christmas presents, but failing to feed properly them or buy them shoes throughout the year.
Anything bought from Jay Jays.
And my personal favourite, buying a lawn mower from Big W.

a few that u may want to consider for the next book….pitbulls, hanging boxing bags in the carport, 4-wheel motor bikes, Animal Stak suppliments, bog laps, Prada sunglasses, financing $70k Maloo utes whilst still living in and renting dilapidated housing units in fringe suburbs….

26 12 2010

They usually buy the maloo or XR8 ute whilst still in trade school(earning fuck all) and don’t need a ute, and prang it before they they are qualified, then start their career in dept. I’m a plumber and i drive my mums old car.

Spending $10,000 trying to get off a charge of DUI after “I wrote it off, mate” because “if I don’t don’t the fucking insurance won’t pay, mate.” Also, paying a “mate” to say he was driving when you went through that speed camera, so you can keep your last point.’

I’m pretty sure that a NSW High Court Judge is the exemplar

Here’s one for the list: The Wiggles. Bogans can’t seem to get enough of dragging their spawn to The Wiggles live shows and dropping a month’s smokes money on merchandise to commemorate the occasion. Totally worth every cent it costs so that two month old Branchelle can see her favourite, Murray, in person… from the back of a crowded auditorium.

I think it’s pretty cool that a great childrens’ entertainment act like The Wiggles exists! Why would you begrudge children the enjoyment of a live music gig??

Cop Bashing- not the actual physical kind but more the behind their back verbal kind. All bogans love a rebel, and while most people can appreciate the honest rebel (Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi or even Guy Fawkes), the Bogan chooses the less honest rebel, especially those who shoot at cops. Ned Kelly is the most popular of these less honest rebels. While not alot is known about the circumstances surrounding the Kelly’s and possible police and government corruption at the time (being the 19th century and before Wikileaks). The bogan will automaticly identify with Ned, even to the point of getting his final words inked on their body. They know that Ned is good and cops are cunts. Even today cops across Australia are being punished because of what they did to Ned. If the bogan drinks too much and drives and get caught, the cops are cunts. If they drive a piece of shit car with a loud stereo/exhaust and alcohol stickers on the back, the cops are cunts for pulling them over. Anytime they fuck up it’s the “pigs” fault. They don’t know that the cops are looking for anything that stands out, and if your rude to them expect more shit. The mere site of a cop will stop the bogan mid sentence to abuse the cops, usually out of audible range for that cop. And it’s not just cops, as a defence member i have put up with abuse from bogans(on ANZAC day) while in uniform(the same ones that get pissed and talk about joining the army), upon seeing someone wearing a uniform issued by the authority the bogan explodes. They haven’t got it that the same authority protects their bigass plasma, a rarely used tinny, the new ute they use to get to their sales job and their fuckugly fake concrete bunker of a house, from being turned into worthless shit should society fail. Most people know that without police or army, nothing would stop the ferals from taking over, it would be like Mad Max 2. But to the bogan who feels it’s ok to glass cunts, do burnouts during christmas at highpoint or start a fight at 11:30pm in the food court, the cop’arrhh is a mortal enemy. With respect for recent events in Melbourne involving a teenager being shot, i have heard many bogans claim “that they could have handled it better and wouldn’t have had to shoot him”. While there are sure to be bogans in the police force(shitload in defence), they are at least doing what many bogans are too scared to do, which brings them to a respectable level of bogan.

20 01 2011
Davo

Also dialing 000 to contact their local police station and cracking the shits when they acually have to go down there to make a complaint.
cop “what time was the bike stolen?”
bogan “i don’t fucking know, just find it”
cop “could you give a description of the bike?”
bogan “it’s silver”
cop “bmx, moutain bike?”
bogan “stop asking fucking questions and find the fucking bike, i don’t pay you to sit around, now get out there and find the fucking bike”
Arrested and without little Blaykes bike, the bogan will go to the pub and brag about how it took 5 cops to hold him down. True story.

Why do bogans build their McMansion complete with the Alfresco option then park their tradie ute and lancer on the drive way so that they can turn their double garage into their indoor/outdoor living area complete with couches, ping pong table and unflued bbq?

It’s “Things Bogans Like”, not “If You Do This You’re A Bogan”.

I’m guilty of about 80 out of 205 on the list myself, but I don’t consider myself a bogan because:
a) I’m aware of my bogan tendencies
b) I enjoy intellectual pursuits
c) I refuse to make important decisions with a “me first” mentality.

What about the current fashion trend amongst young Gen Y boguettes of wearing those strappy open toe roman sandle type shoes combined with cut-off denim shorts which would put Daisy Duke to shame. It was crap fashion in the 70′s/80′s and its still crap recycled this time around!

New to your website. Having been living in the US (bogan free as there is no reciprocal 2 yr work visa program) for the last 7 years, I am enjoying the list of bogan cultural crimes.
Not sure if you have covered it but you might want to collate a list of bogan wedding songs. I attended a wedding back in 97 where the lovely couple danced to Pearl Jam’s (“can’t find a”) Better Man. That’s bogan gold!

No bogans in the US? Get a grip. They are there in droves, but they don’t go by the name “bogans”. I don’t know what the generic term is but you can find plenty of them via google in “walmart people”. Take you ten seconds. Why has everyone here seen emails of these creatures but you haven’t? That’s puzzling. I first got one maybe 5 years ago…

Your suggestion of wedding songs is a classic, the the way.

20 01 2011

Why doesn’t the US have a name for bogans? They created the whole bogan culture, we just classed it up a bit and gave it a name.

James Hunter

Davo, I think either “Rednecks” or “trailer trash” would go close.

20 01 2011

Rednecks and trailer trash arent bogans, they’re just like our ferals. I was talking about the real bogan culture the USA created. Fast food, megamalls, megachurches, multistorey carparks, wiggers, SUVs, hollywood, the mid west, megafreeways, kings of leon, las vegas and all celebrities. Just about everything on the TBL list can be tracked back to the US. Their bogans set the trend for ours.

21 01 2011
Will S

It is amplified in Australia because we are so small-time compared to the USA. The Aussie bogan aspires to be what the US bogan is. P!nk, for instance, is not nearly as popular over there as here because there’s just so much more going on over there, culturally.

To quote a delicious slice of irony, TISM style, with their song “Opposite Day”:

“Just imagine an opposite world, though it is hard to do
Newspapers for illiterates, leaders say untruths,
The best people in this world ignored, while the brats it mollycoddles,
Rock stars are seen as serious, also supermodels,
And the actors would all treated as if they were like kings,
And normal folk would be just like…anonymous nothings!

The young girl put down her book and laid her sleepy head,
‘But that world could never exist. Thank you, Satan’, she said.”

I’m certain that they were referring to the Herald-Scum and The Daily Terrorgraph there as the said newspapers for illiterates, all pictures and bold headlines.

MOTHER – LOW CARB

I’m no dietitian, but from my knowledge carbohydrates are energy and as Mother is an energy drink that promotes itself as being in the maxtreme league what we have here is, at the very least, a contradiction, possibly even an oxymoron but definitely a brilliant piece of bogan trapping on the part of CCA.

5 02 2011

I can see your point the Nood and to support you there have been a number of commentators in the U.K. citing the denegration of ‘Chav’ culture as a form of racism, so the same can be said about the predjudice against ‘Bogans’.

At the same time those who ascribe to Bogan culture (knowingly or not) have a lot of influence in the socio-political activities and development of our country and therefore a critical commentary of their culture is required.

Bogans attack many other cultures and minority groups in our society and in a much harsher and uninformed way and are far more hateful than the people behind this blog ever will be!

Dear Nood,

I suggest you rent and watch the Movie “Idiocracy”. This is where main stream Australia and the Bogan are headed. I like people who are different from me, alot. But the Bogan isn’t just different, it is insidious. It needs to be denigrated, scorned, belittled, humiliated and exposed for what it truly is…. a social, physical, moral, ethical and mental cretin.

There’s one missing! The most bogan thing ever … scrapbooking. It’s pure marketing genius – selling worthless crap to the unimaginative to make them feel fulfiled and creative. Self realisation through scrapbooking.

Let’s sell little packets of scrap paper for $10. While we’re at it, let’s make the pages a new format (30cm square) so they have to go out and buy more paper, folders etc. Oooh – lets sell teensy packets of diamantes, letters and cutouts. I know a new word! Brads. Do you like it? And even though we sell them all the preprinted bits and magazines with layouts to follow, they can show how creative they really are.

I’m sure it has nothing to do with people keeping their photos in digital format and the entire photo printing industry taking a nosedive. That would be cynical.

Oh sweet baby jaysus on a unicycle. Scrapbooking…. making piles of shyte out of other piles of shyte. The awful CUB hambeast across the road from us holds scrapbooking evenings at least once a week, and the boguettes who show up are referred to as “the brides of satan” by all in my house. The street is clogged with shitty KIA people movers and chevrodores until late when they all depart in a fashion resembling the stampeding bison in “Dances with Wolves”. Her indoors got an invitation once and responded with a polite “thanks but no thanks”; since then, the hambeast has either ignored her or responded with mild-to medium hostility. God I hate scrapbooking.

The Gold Coast is long overdue for the TBL treatment. It combines so many TBL classics in one handy location: Footpaths outside nightclubs, Ed Hardy, glassing cunts, last year’s designer drug, franchises, Tiffany & Co, the casino, massive cans, tramp stamps, 3-park superpass and of course, weddings (barefoot on the beach, obviously).

Not on the list, but also essential elements of the Gold Coast experience are: stretch Hummer limousines, canal estates and faded 80s “luxury” hotels.

This stuff is worthy of spot on any Bogues mantlepiece. No in fact it’s just plain cringe worthy. C’mon TBL, you know you want it!

Thanks for nothing, Dux. Now I have to clean the coffee-spray of the screen (not to mention deleting my browser history; like I want people to see I’ve been looking at this sh!t.) I can’t remember the last time I saw such a pile of crap in the one place; this site makes kitch look good. Seriously: a “Baby Obama” doll next to a figurine of Robert E. Lee.. WTF. And a Sons of the Southern Cross Ring… should come in handy at the next Cronulla riot.

In a way, it’s a shame TBL exists as a website. If it didn’t Bradford Exchange could change their name to Things Bogans Like.

Best not look at “Baby Umi” the life size baby orangutang, with a free ‘pacifier’

There is no God. I’m going to put this as simply as I can: What kind of freaking pond-scum buys this crap?

What do you think they were thinking when they put the bow on the head without any evidence of a clip or band? http://www.ashtondrake.com/products/301156001_so-truly-real-vinyl-doll.html

I agree that it is unattractive, but at least some proceeds go to preserving the rainforest.

That is the nastiest shit I have ever seen.

Bogan Panic du Jour on ACA last night: The Killer Plasma tellies. Apparently little rugrats are crawling up said big screen TVs and pulling them on top of themselves. A story no parent can afford to miss.
Fembogue pops out sprog, collects Bogan Bucks, buys the big screen TV, TV falls on sprog. Kind of a neat little circle of life thing going on there.

If a child was really hurt by being crushed in this way, why are you crowing about it??

And why do you watch ACA?

You gotta love those people who keep filing the creators of this Blog nerds…
So sad. :P

This doesn’t make any sense. Get Wyatt McCoach to do it for you next time, he’s worth the Wesley school fees. TBL

Can I suggest you do one about collectible figurines. You know those lovely ones with medieveal ladies, knights, dragons and unicorns? They usually feature those stalwarts of bogan culture … crystal, glitter and a hint of porn. http://www.ashtondrake.com/mcategory/fantasy-dolls.html

I haven’t even had a thorough look through this website, but i can say this already just by looking at the names of these posts, how many of you from melbourne have personalised plates and foxtel? My guess a fair bit. People are people, who gives a damn if their tradies or not. Just because they have the guts to say stuff that you say behind closed doors does not mean that they are bogan.

I love the way that everyone must be a closet racist, everyone who lacks personalised plates must secretly covet them etc. etc.

And it must be asked, what are the tradies doing (or not)?

No article for over a week (and the last one was more of a pious rant than thought-provoking). Is this the end of TBL? Rest in Peace. We had some good times.

We’re still trucking – we’ve churned out a 90,000 word book manuscript in the first two months of 2011, which has knackered us a bit. Also, we drafted 90% of a boganomics article for last Friday for MacroBusiness, but it got knocked back due to a bit of unexpected editorial sensitivity relating to Australia’s richest person. TBL

I find the boganomics book ultra cringeworthy. I was at the Sydney Opera House when Chas McSween spoke. The audience booed him.
