Friday poll – Making headlines

11 02 2011

This week, partners in rage Tony Abbott and Matt Newton proved themselves to be far too intemperate to love, Eddie Maguire stated his distaste for Mediterranean cuisine, and AFFPM took a leaf out of Bob Hawke’s book, giving bogans a very real Prime Ministerial Tear. In news most titillating to the bogan, a certain “sexual Everest” of a celebrity hurled herself into the plump arms of Australia’s best cricket bogan.  This caused nationwide panic amongst the bogans, as they attempted to come to terms with the fact that someone only slightly less famous than Russell Crowe was being mounted by Warney. In other news, political correctness continued to go mad in Egypt.

Results of last week’s polling indicate that the news which drew most attention from the bogan was ‘the terrifying news that Weetbix and bananas are no longer an economically viable breakfast option,’ which really hit close to home for the bogan. At the other end of the spectrum, responses suggest that the bogan’s concern for the sanity of political correctness does not apply to North African or South Asian countries, with ‘political correctness going utterly apeshit in Egypt’ proving least popular, just behind news of  increasing sanity regarding the correctness of Nepalese politics as ‘Jhalanath Khanal elected Nepalese PM, breaking 7 months of political stalemate, after the Maoist party withdrew their candidate.’

Kochie of course. The bogan wants the gypo’s to stop taking top spot off Warnie.

something is amiss with this poll. Using the link from the email took me to “polldaddy” – is that what you intended?

Also, is it always private? I never noticed there not being a result before.

Ha we all know another nation’s politics has nothing on the bogan superstar scoring with a supermodel. It’s every male bogan’s dream!

I’d do her. The bogan was probably thinking, like myself, what condition Liz Hurley’s boobs are in, given that she’s 45.

it tell me her breasts are actually quite small and perky, making them easy to dress well (push up/pad), and more resistant to gravity… like mine 😉

13 02 2011
GoldCoaster

They do look real. If they are small, then of course they will look perky in one of those bras that’s more pad than breast. BTW all these guys talking about wanting to sleep with her, well, I wonder what your partners would think? I’d hate for them to think you were a bogan like Shane.

11 02 2011

I think Shane deserves the likes of his wife and not Liz. One of the reasons I don’t watch sport Simon. You’re helping bogans get classy women.

The evergreen TISM can be relied upon for an applicable lyrical quote:

“Sell out, sell out, wherever you are,
Sell out and be like me!
A quarter-acre suburban block
And a nice colour TV!
I threw away my skateboard
And got a Commodore, by jingo!
I’m sittin’ in it, right about now,
With the exhaust pipe in the window!”

That’s the story!

We best ask Shane!

If I was to get breast augmentation, I would choose very small implants, so that no one was ever any wiser! Then they would never sag like things of that size tend to do when gravity affects them after 30 years (15 +30= 45 for Liz)

11 02 2011
Ash - Glasser of Carnts

But Alyssa, what’s the point then?

The only reason to get breast implants for the boguette is to flaunt her massive cans to attract bogue mates. And perhaps the odd less discerning non-bogue also.

11 02 2011
AlyssaKT

true, I would never want to attract more bogans. I stopped being a (Gold Coast) blonde for that very reason. Or perhaps I stopped wanting to be a boguette!

11 02 2011
Ash - Glasser of Carnts

You live on the Gold Coast…I can’t figure out a way for a woman to not attract bogans there. Get fat, you draw in the wogans. Get skinny, you draw in the bogans.

13 02 2011
GoldCoaster

If you cover up, bogans don’t usually try. I don’t mean like a burka, but I always wear pants or skirts that never go above my knees. I also have brown hair. Show flesh, go blonde=bogan magnet. Show class, stay natural, don’t swear=one decent, respectable, kind, intelligent, hard-working, handsome man, who is now my husband.

I must be somewhere in between then! haha

You sound completely normal. Maybe there are a lot of bogans in your suburb, or they’re encroaching on your favourite hang-out spots.

Oh I don’t think we can escape them anywhere we live. I’m in Broadbeach and live in a complex of old people. The only bogan in the building is my new flatmate. A 23 year old hairdresser from Newcastle who has no volume button.
Who evidently doesn’t know where the bins, letterbox, or vacuum are located. And who thinks I am “doer/supplier of all things I can’t be bothered doing/buying for myself”.
Yes, my resentment is rising.
At least I get my hair done for free.

here’s hoping the kraken can hound the happy couple into some sort of MVA situation. Before the monthlies go to print. does melbourne have any tunnels? I’d settle for going off the westgate bridge personally, but a tunnel crash would be more romantic.

11 02 2011

Melbourne certainly does have tunnels: the Domain and Burnley Tunnels on the Citylink M1 (Monash Freeway) under the King’s Domain parklands near the city and the M3 Eastlink’s Melba and Mullum Mullum Tunnels under the Mullum Mullum Park in east suburban Donvale.

Both head to the undifferentiated South Eastern Suburbs agglomeration, bringing him closer to his childhood district of Ferntree Gully, thus hopefully closing the circle…how sweet.

LOL I heard Warnie did a porn star just now. I don’t do office work in my spare time unless someone pays me, so would a porn star act her part with him for nothing? Interesting to see when the tapes come out on that one…

She is?

If you were talking Jennifer Hawkins or Megan Gale, then yes I understand the use of the term.

But a 45 year old slashie (Zoolander reference) who hasn’t done anything much other than the Austin Powers flicks and who married her last husband for the money…I’d say she’s more of a sexual Kosciuszco.

I conquered Kosciuszko when I was 17 years old – that’s what I did for schoolies. A two-hour walk from the car park at Charlottes Pass along a wide graded gravel track with no rock hopping or even getting your feet wet, and a two-hour walk back. Unchallenging, rolling terrain for the first 90 minutes then a gentle uphill spiral the rest of the way. It would be graded Level 2 by most bushwalking clubs. Even many octogenarian grandmothers could do it.

Oh god. Now I’ve opened a can of worms. Mental pictures of grandmothers with walking frames conquering Liz Hurley. Apologies in advance, everyone. 😛

I’d say it’s sexual dumb luck. He’s got 30 million bucks so I hear on my travels on the internet. I wonder if he actually thinks when he bowls so well or if there is some sort of bogan god controlling him. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if there was a god and he or she was a bogan. Favouring the bogan idiots and making us good people suffer and traumatising us through the likes of well, bogans.

11 02 2011

Martin, I honestly can’t argue at all with you here. There’s a reason I gave up on religion years ago. Why waste time praising a God and trying to make him happy when he’s clearly more devoted to the idiots and dropkicks of the world?

For me the most bogan thing in the news this week was the Tony Abbott nonsense (“shit happens”) created entirely by Channel 7. I don’t really like Tony Abbott that much, but Channel 7 should be ashamed for taking something he said out of context and using a young soldier’s death to create hype.

I suppose it gives the bogan a chance to forgive him though.

11 02 2011
Pipergirl

My favourite part was the trashmedia continually playing and quoting Abbott’s comments – which were so insensitive and offensive they’ve felt the need to replay them over and over just in case we weren’t offended the first time. Abbott only said it once, whereas on the trashmedia, well, “shit happens” has become the new “inundated.”

11 02 2011

They weren’t even offensive at all, Channel 7 just told you they were offensive and then kept telling you they were offensive all week, lol

Looks like Berlusconi may slip on a banana skin, so to speak: http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2011/02/10/3134846.htm

It’s those small things that can be the catalyst of your undoing…let’s hope (albeit vainly) that the Italian judicial system prevails and the prosecution sticks, to put that putrid old sleazebag into prison. Not so much for procuring underage pudenda, but more for his hopelessly conflicted business and media interests that remain whilst assuming head of government, along with the systemic cronyism and corruption that he has encouraged.

It’s pricks like him that keep Italy from becoming a truly worthy and credible nation, allowing a continuation of the culture of standover, graft, profligacy and nepotism and the poor reputation of that nation and its institutions that comes as a consequence.

Ma, vaffanculo Berlusconi! (makes an “up yours!” gesticulation, said with feeling)

12 02 2011

doubtless italians have their bogans (Bogani ?) whose admiration for the putrid old scumbag has contributed to his political longevity thus far. equally doubtless there’s a Maxxo Marxoni in the wings waiting to capitalise on Sra. Lolita’s headlineworthiness.

The Guvmint needs the trashmedia to maintain the “circus” component of it’s “give the bogans HSV Utes, jet skis, bread and circuses” policy.
Turn it (the trashmedia, that is) off, and the boge’s might start to move up the evolutionary path, and begin thinking about stuff, like, how the whole system is in place to screw them from birth, and up to and after their last breath. All in the name of….what? A McMansion full of shit they don’t need and never use?

Man oh man. I generally try to be stoic about this issue, but tonight I’m in a píssy mood so get ready for some tl;dr

Well I was a kid, I thought myself to be well educated about finances. I thought I knew about saving, not borrowing beyond your means and generally how to get by in this crazy world. How I wish someone had told me about the wonders of scamming your way through the welfare system…

I got the boot from my parents at 16 and had to live with my grandma, whose disability pension barely kept a roof over our heads, let alone food on the table. But! I had peers at school who were living with only one parent and where able to claim youth allowance, so I thought I’d give old C-link a go. Wouldn’t have a bar of me, said I was still dependent upon my folks and I didn’t qualify. I managed to plead with my parents to get $25/week to live off, which I spent on milk, cereal and a dial-up internet connection (this was 2006, not exactly cutting edge tech).

One and a half years later it was time to move to Brisbane to try to get a university degree. At this point, every one of my peers was on youth allowance, they were considered independent due to having worked part-time for over a year. I didn’t have the luxury; it was an hour’s walk just to get to school. So I moved into my brother’s lounge room, studied from there but was unable to find work. I tried to convince C-Link of my plight but in the end was taken to a back room and threatened with legal action because apparently I was trying to commit fraud by saying I wasn’t dependent on my parents. Yay.

In the meantime I had applied for a living expenses scholarship with UQ – they said I wasn’t quite good enough for a straight-up scholarship but would give me $2000 a semester if I could give them documentation showing I was on C-Link payments (apparently this was their way of outsourcing means testing). After quite a heated interview (at the end of which I cried like a little bítch) they determined that if I’d lived without welfare up to this point, I’d be fine for the rest of my degree. Fµck ’em.

At this stage my parents had stopped paying any money, and I lived thanks to my brother, but he only bought me about $10 food per week. It felt like I went the whole year without actually handling any money… And on the flip side I had a mate who didn’t work, whose parents paid his rent, and was on full Youth Allowance + Rent Assistance. I try not to hold it against him – it’s his money after all – but most weeks he would spend about $200 on ‘going out’. FML, as they say.

When my brother moved out of the share house I had to go to. I was able to rent a place with my girlfriend and a few other students; she paid our share of rent by working part time at a liquor store. A new avenue! C-Link independence can be given if you live in a domestic de-facto relationship. Gave it a go… denied. I couldn’t find any part time work, but was offered a full time spot so quit university to save up some money for a while.

After doing the requisite amount of full time to finally be unquestionably independent, I thought I’d go back to uni, and I also joined the army reserve so I’d have some part time work. After getting back from basic training, I finally got on Youth Allowance! The task that had been so simple for everyone around me, I could now complete. And at $10000/year for doing nothing, all I had to do was not spend it like a díck and I’d have $30k at the end of my degree. Nice.

3 months later, I get a letter from C-Link. No more money, apparently now I’m in a de facto relationship! And of course the missus earns just enough over the threshold to reduce my payments to nothing. Brilliant. At least with our combined part-time works we could finally get educated…

Six months from there, Centrelink want every cent they’ve paid me back. They’ve reviewed my case, and it was all a mistake, should’ve never gotten anything in the first place. So for three years I’ve been in dire straits, the exact person that Youth Allowance was designed for and in the end I got nothing. Not one fµcking cent. At that wouldn’t even bother me that much, if over that period I hadn’t watch my peers receive (and piss away) over $30000 each. Welfare is Fµcked. FÜÜÜÜÜÜCCCCKKKKKEEEDDD I tell you. God I’m in a shítty mood now.

Epilogue: About a year after I had resigned to a life as a second class citizen, a very strange thing happened. At 5:00am my door was broken in by AFP officers, who seized about $2000 worth of computer equipment, took me downtown and told me in no uncertain terms that prison was in my immediate future, for some bullshít ‘hacking’ charge that I had no part in. I couldn’t deal with it – if you can guess I’m not the most mentally stable to begin with. After being let out of the police station I was going to throw myself to the rails… instead I took my girl with me on the next plane to Central Europe, where we have since been making a new life for ourselves. I can’t return of course, being on passport control (not to mention those tickets have never technically been paid for).

Boy was that nice to get off my chest. Whoa
There was probably a lot of typos in the above, I think I was seeing red the whole time I typed it out. Thanks for reading if you did

Oh yeah. There are a bunch of us in society who will never be able to claim any of these things, and they are:
– childless;
– working full or > 50% part time in a lower to middle pay bracket;
– not able to afford to buy a property;
– able-bodied;
– without private health insurance; and
– may have a degree,
ie, me, and my husband. We get nothing! My degree was paid for though, but that’s not welfare. We are neither of us eligible for middle class welfare.

“Affluenza” is a great book on Bogan consumerism and has a chapter on middle class welfare. I recommend it.

you forgot though, MAcmansions don’t have huge backyards – they’re crammed into every last corner.

Really, it’s having the biggest HOUSE on the streeet that is important, not the biggest (shadiest and greenest) backyard.
