What is a Bogan Today?

An excellent question. It is time to bring to the world’s attention the means by which we can keep the world’s bogans happy. The word bogan has had a bad rap of late – still associated with wife beaters, flannelette, VB, utes and mullets. But this conceals the new, modern bogan. The bogan with money. The bogan with aspirations. The bogan with Ed Hardy t-shirts. And this is no mere Australian phenomenon – in the US, you have rednecks, in the UK, chavs. While there are variations, the crux of the discussion remains the same.

The bogan today defies income, class, race, creed, gender and logic. The bogan is defined by what it does, what it says and, most importantly, what it buys. Those who choose to deny the bogan on the basis of their North Shore home, their stockbroking career or their massive trust fund choose not to see the bogan. They merely see old class battles revisited. Likewise, the bogan is no mere ‘tradie’. Even if tradies remained low-income workers, many bogans are affluent. And they set themselves apart by their efforts to stand out by conforming as furiously, and conspicuously, as possible.

If you want to see first hand a perfect example of widespread boganism today, go to the Qantas Club at Perth Airport when the miners are are all flying out. Many will feebly try and disguise their boganism by substituting their fluro and reflective striped shirts and safety boots for camouflage pattern shorts and Bintang singlets Some of the more fashion conscious though will splash out on something with Billabong or Rip Curl emblazoned upon it.

I have had many a rant about the attire of frequent flying bogans. You should see the reaction I get when I suggest that airlines should have a dress code…even the term ‘un-Australian’ gets a run.

Oh, the frequent flying bogan is still upset about the bar in the Qantas Club not opening until midday. That’s lots of wasted drinking hours.

22 04 2011
Bogan Spotter

I agree with having a minimum dress standard. Unfortunately, the airlines have very lucrative contract with Rio and BHP who clearly don’t care about their bogan employee image.

I doubt Qantas expected that anyone other than “professional” business men would frequent their Lounges when they originally brought in the Frequent Flyers. But as usual the bogan’s overwhelming desire for maxtremity has brought the Qantas FF lounges to their knees.

I totally agree. Minimum standards should be slacks with a nice polo. Desirable standard should be morning dress, with court shoes.
Females can wear whatever they want. As long as they do not look attractive.

No, no, no to you dear ‘Bogan Spotter’, November is nearly upon us. Check out the herds and flocks of bogans heading to the Melbourne cup by “train” of course, so they can get totally pissed. Oh my, my that is one scary day. Being of the female gender myself, it almost makes me cry to see them staggering home, shoes in hand, vomit speckled dress, frozen and sun-burnt at the same time. The horrid cheap suits that the bogan boys seem to have found somewhere also brings tears to my eyes. In fact most of the bogan race goers look like they’ve robbed an op-shop in the dark. It must have been dark or they surely would never have chosen those outfits?????? Check out the Edelstiens, on race day………. I rest my case……………………Sigh x 1,000

Like what I’m reading, impressed by the observed bahavour on carriages. As far as modern CUBS, observe the sunglasses pulled back on the head, the beckham style ‘mohawk’ cut, the light colored fasion loafers, and the dinner jacket hanging off the back of the chair at the banquet tables.

Behold the ultimate in bogan self improvement courses. Mr Viv and I were approached by this cult of bogan nuff nuffs in LAX while waiting for our cancelled flight to be rescheduled. Our flight was full of bogan Australians that had just spent 9 days in Orlando at a brainwashing conference to learn how to be Avatar Masters of their own destinies. When the flight was cancelled they spent their time pestering the tired and distraught by offering us cards with pictures of flowers on them and exercises we could do to make the world more compassionate, oh and contact details in case we wanted to join the cult.
I was fascinated by them and listened in to their conversations. One guy had just started his on business and was getting the other cult members on board. It was a great deal, you see he purchased all of these nutritional sports supplements and then if he could get 10 friends to sell them for him, he would get a part of the profit. If they found 10 friends to sell for them, everyone would be winners! Great idea. Most amazing though, given that he had been on a self awareness course, was this. He opened up his book on the plane “The secret wisdom of the ancient flower of life” and started reading, the first pages had pictures of Pyramids and some crap extolling the secret wisdom of the ancient Egyptians. Pyramids, just after he was trying to recruit people into his pyramid marketing scheme. The stupidity was delicious. Was it irony??
Anyway, i know have the email address of Jan Potts, the fool who approached me with a flower card. I’ll wait a few more weeks and then start reaching out to her for some help I think. Yaaay , a new project. I see on the website that i can also purchase cards with flowers on them to hand out to strangers….

ilovemusic

I don’t think anyone can blame people for wanting to make a buck out of mining. This has been a boon to people who would not have another chance to make a good life. For example, mechanics or fitters earning around $30,000 per year, can now triple that rate if they have the nous to go out and look for mining jobs. A lot of these people may be genuine bogans , but there are a lot of ex teachers, graphic artists, cleaners etc who are looking for a better life. My grandfather gave up suburbia in Sydney to rise to prosperity ‘on the sheep’s back’, so what is so different about these people. Some of these people may not be so well educated, but they are seeking a better life.

16 06 2011
Mick

The answer, ilovemusic, is in your last four words…’seeking a better life’.

What constitutes a better life? Different folk have different ideas. Now, if you’re off chasing the big dollar so you can use it to improve yourself mentally, physically, financially,spiritually, ethically or whatever, I applaud thee.

If you’re chasing the big dollar to get a fully sick jetski, you’ve failed.

16 08 2011
Observation

Agreed. As a medical professional in a mining town I can tell you that all of these people who went in search of ‘a better life’ just waste the money on a mid-90s Nissan Patrol, early-2000s Commodore, boat, caravan and trips to Bali.

21 10 2011
Jesse

Perhaps you’re not really a medical professional. Maybe you’re really a financial adviser and you can advise miners about what they should be spending their money on?

12 10 2011
kris

Mick, you’ve pretty much nailed it —
Bogans are materially obsessive — a driving factor is bragging rights, (particularly CUBs), who has the latest/best/top/most ostentatious/most expensive stuff; lifestyle is nothing to them.
as long as you drive a tricked-out Conformodore or shiny SS, wear new Nikes, a labelled hoody and designer sunglasses, while your chick is blinged to the max and carries flashy designer handbags everywhere.
it doesn’t matter if your sprogs don’t eat well, get to school regularly, or stay clean (ie. drugs/gangs/juvie), as long as you can go home to your McMansion in Cranbogan, sit down in your LaZBoy with a sixpack in front of the 100inch TV to enjoy channel ONE or 7mate.

The teaching (formerly a)profession is now a magnet for Boguns. Jocks ie “Bachelor of Human Movement” trained teachers are the quintessential certified Bogun. They relate to the students on a bogun level, travel to Bali, Phuket, brag about lewd sex acts in asia, getting smashed, are sports informed yet arts ignorant, love toys like jetskis, x box heaven forbid, are fully into branding eg:wear quicksilver and asics are obligatory, have chinese character tattoos on neck and worse are obvious tribal tatts that are just a rip off of polynesian culture that they are not actually connected to. They are the movers and shakers of sex ed in schools under the banner of “Health and Well Being” and at the same time practice promiscuity in their own lives. plastic elongated ear piercings, mega buck mountain bike, road bike cafe loitering in lycras with the ‘in crowd’. These are the “Role Models” (to students”I’m your mentor mate or guys”)and ” just chill and I’ll share with you stuff that will make you wanna be like me, team”.”we all make choices, thats why I’m here to give you the tools” to be party safe” extrinsic rewards are rife and “on friday I’m going to reward you with a trip to Maccas, mark that in your smart phones thats what I do”. FYI there is a BOGUN RD out the back of Deloraine in Tasmania

12 12 2011
urbanreverie

PE / “Health & Human Development” teachers have always been bogan, Alex. Even when I went to school in the 80s and 90s.

Not only that, but they are also intellectually inferior to teachers who have to teach real stuff like physics or mathematics and they know it. So they carry a massive chip on their shoulder, which often leads to a confrontational attitude towards their students, particularly students who have more brains than them (i.e., 90% of the class).

Can you imagine one of these clowns trying to read Macbeth, let alone understand it and teach it? Or trying to educate students about the valency of elements and how they vary across the periodic table? Yeah, I can’t imagine it either.

Your insights into their behaviour in the staff common room are definitely interesting. That’s it. If I ever have kids, I’m sending them to a Montessori or Steiner school.

Have you noticed the latest trend amongst the single bogan male? Replace your need for a ‘lady friend’ with the hideous dog breed known as a ‘staffy’. Perhaps you could offer a scientific reason for this trend? Does the dog serve as a replacement? A reflection? A penis extension? A more intelligent I can’t say I’m the only one who has noticed the latest boganic fashion. A rather polished Brighton lady (of course) just happened to ask me if I had noticed how many ugly young men walked around with Staffys and exclaimed that animal shelters are now full of them (I guess the some of the aforementioned bogans may have partnered up). Bogans LOVE staffys.

8 08 2011
Thetoonarmy

Have just come across this and its a huge relief. So many things that bug me about Australia are on your list so the fact that they annoy/amuse/amaze/disgust others makes me not feel so alone in my, largely, non Bogan world (although I guess there is a little Bogan in all of us).

Was going to add a few items to the list starting with Staffys but Andee Jay beat me to it (well done, you hit the nail on the head there).

But I’d still suggest gas babeques, 4WDs, revering ‘The Don’, Channel Nine news, talking about home renovations/how much your house is worth, sending your progeny to private schools, talking knowledgeably about obscure places in the country (that you’ve been to once) and … the list goes on.

You are exactly right. The apparent witticism and humour of this site is quickly smothered by the seething negativity pompousness and judgement passing which, although often amusing at first ultimately leaves a bad taste. I think there are some very insecure authors/ posters who are rigourously revelling in there own sense of grandiosity because they feel that intelligence/superiority/value/worth can be measured by way of specific examples of clothing, vocabulary, interests etc. I want to love it because there are some clever posts and funny good natured comments yet whether the Tongue is firmly in cheek is unclear and it makes me a little nauseous and sad that clever funny persons have let what could have been great fun become a mass of pointless jism of what is essentially negative hatespeak from nervous first world pseudo intellectuals wallowing in a personal identity crisis.

I think Flockokk is on the money in saying that there are lot of scarred people out there and I’m one of them. Your/our behaviour is at best no better than there’s and I wonder just how many of you are really bogans at heart, but have risen above the poo and can now see it.
I think we had better come up with an idea to either educate or eliminate this group, because they ain’t going away any time soon without intervention.
Personally, I’m for gated communities where anyone is welcomed, but must abide by a set of principals, just applying over inflated entry will not deter the bogan as is the case with the North Shore (NSW).

Yes, true bogans have no taste, style, are ignorant and racist, dull, predictable, boring, angry, aggressive with a tendency to violence and more likely than not, follow Collingwood. It’s worse now with the CUB’s, and that thanx to Jetstar, they get to travel beyond Queensland. I think before people can vote or breed, they should have IQ & EQ tests…

Yes, it has. I suspect they’re used by the sort of bogans who say “having a kid is my greatest achievement” and who hide behind their children whenever they’re threatened or feel the need to pose in an authoritarian or self righteous way to cover up what a f#cked person they are.

Along with the term “working families” it advances a repulsive meme designed to relieve the advocates of responsibility and to elevate themselves above people without kids without having to actually do anything to earn it besides go through the well worn and elementary machinations of child rearing.

The confused Anti-Bogan

I don’t want to be considered a bogan so could this enlightened audience please advise me on:
What car I should drive?
Where should I live (or not live) and what is the acceptable style of dwelling?
What alcoholic refreshements should I purchase or be seen drinking?
What should I wear:
a. In public?
b. Around the home?
c. At an informal gathering such as a bbq?
Who should I vote for?
What foods can I eat that are not prepared either in the home or restraunt kitchen.

Please help with my dilemma.

4 10 2011
Mick

What car should I drive? I would suggest an economical, reliable vehicle that can handle. Safety is a must. A small Asian or European maybe. Good value for money. For a performance job go for the Volkswagen…Porsche or Golf shall do. My one tip is to never drive a type of vehicle on the basis that everyone else thinks that it is cool.

Where should I live? It doesn’t matter where you live, there will be bogans. However, try for places that have services nearby. Schools, shops, medical facilities, public transport. When you find a place like this it doesn’t matter what type of dwelling you reside in. Find something that you are comfortable in. My one tip is never live in an area on the basis that everyone else thinks that it is cool.

Alcoholic refreshments? Your own taste is the big measure here but remember, everything in moderation. Don’t spoil your own night or the night of everybody else because of one too many. My one tip is don’t select your drink on the basis that everyone else thinks that it is cool.

Apparel? Wear whatever you think is comfortable and fashionable for you. Modesty, comfort and environment would be the most important factors.This holds true for every social situation. Good clothing can accentuate your strong points but poor fashion will emphasise your flaws. My one tip is to not pick fashion on the basis that everyone else thinks that it is cool.

Voting? Vote for whoever fits your circumstances.It differs for everyone. However, never vote for the political party that offers the biggest bribe. Vote for the party that offers the biggest future for not only your children, but their children’s children. It’s a big decision. My one tip is don’t vote for a party on the basis that everyone else thinks they are cool.

Takeaway food? Your own taste is the big measure here. There is lots to choose from and some is very tasty but remember, everything in moderation. Don’t want a nation of fatties do we? My one tip is don’t eat it on the basis that everybody else thinks that it is cool

4 10 2011
Mick

Oh, sorry…I did mean to add the most important point.

Make your own decisions. That is a strong trait that is terribly underrated. Once you know you can do that you will always be bogan-free.

I hope this helped.

moar caek

you are so cool Mick.

21 10 2011

Actually,

Only bogans drive cars. If you don’t want to be a bogan, do not drive a car.

Don’t live in a place that has services. Only bogans are aspirational.

Do not drink alcohol. Only bogans are boozers.

But all your clothes from Thrift Shops. Only bogans purchase new clothes.

Do not vote for any of the five major parties in Australia. Only bogans vote for them.

Do not buy takeaway food. This is bogan cuisine.

Most of all, do not listen to Mick. Bogans are way more immune to fashion that strident non-bogans. People desperate to be thought non-bogan try so hard to be cool by going against mainstream fashion that they are the greatest fashion victims of them all.

Maybe they want to go and die for oil or something. Suits me.

Putting a chevy badge on your car seems a lot like putting a southern cross tattoo on ya. Some lame arse thing that doesn’t do or mean shit. They’re all stinging to sell out like a big ho just like everyone else. If not more so.

The thing is the people who are most reliant on globalisation, ARE THE BOGANS. It’s the housing industry who want more immigration so they can make professional wages for scum f#ck year 8 skills knocking down houses and sticking up units. It’s the moiners who like the global market selling dirt and shit to India and Choina.

I’d love to get you box head inbreds working in factories like the good old days. But because you’re all unionised you’d want $100k for sticking your dick up each other and probably an extra $10 each time you made a crude joke.

Feel free to post your manifesto here Daniel. It might even be sensible. But I bet it’d be harmful to bogans.

I am covered with tattoos, have no people skills and design surf wear – could I be a bogan?

Pandabater

The Bogan has no self-awareness, so no.

8 09 2011
martin

Surfers are pretty bogan by default imo. But then again so am I and I’m a spastic at surfing. Using words like retard and spastic is also bogan but I don’t care because it’s funny.

8 09 2011
Daniella Ciano

can I continue pole-dancing?

8 09 2011
Pandabater

Sure, it’s a free country.
Do you do it because you want to
or are you being coerced into it
by relationship pressure.
The Bogan is more likely to be
the watcher, not the dancer.

Hi Pandabater – if the tattooed pole dancer is the Daniella Ciano I work with then she is definitely a bogan. Bogans are rude and have an ill-founded feeling of superiority don’t they?

Has anyone else noticed the essential bogan female fashion essential seems to be cheap, black work pants (the kind they probably got for free from the second hand shop so they could go to a job interview). And how they always wear them too long, so the backs get under their shoes or feet and get all dirty and ripped? I swear 97% of bogan women in my town partake in this fashion statement. They seem to blend especially well with giant prams.

Signs that maybe, just maybe you and your partner are 2nd generation Bogans.

Your Mrs’ name is Johdie or for the ladies, your old mans name is Wahyne (Pls note the inclusion of the essential silent/Bogan ‘H’)

You met your partner at Bathurst (She caught your eye when she flashed her tits, and your brown eye caught hers)

It was love at first sight….You both drank Bourbon…Jim Beam white , the real good top shelf stuff not that cheap ‘Woodstock shit’!

Being the lady that she is, she kicked off her muddy Moccies before she let you root her so as to not get mud on your Commodore’s bonnet.

Because you were so ‘into’ her and thought she could be the one, you only let your very best mate Macca have a go after you.

You let her ‘clean herself up’ afterwards with the Ford t-shirt that you stole for this very occasion.

Your other mate Chooka only let Macca ‘have a go’ because Johdie’s his favourite sister (half). And out of respect to Johdie he’s not even going to post the video online.

Your wedding cars were in the Commodore family (sorry but a HSV is still just a commodore, you can’t polish a turd)

If more than 10% of your male guests (not the bridal party) had to hire/buy a suit for the wedding. Then just said “Fuck it” and threw that tie away when they just couldn’t work out “….the stupid bloody poofter thing”.
And when they did eventually roll up their sleeves at 12:05 there was a second set of sleeves… featuring the very unique ‘scary’ underworld Benji tribal design.

Of course the ladies in your bridal party were far more discreet with the tattoos of their children’s names (with the silent/Bogan ‘H’), the asian scripture, the Looney Tune/Disney cartoon characters and of course my favourite…the butterfly tramp stamp! Which every red blooded male knows its true meaning…”i do anal”.

And of course you topped of your very special Friday lunchtime wedding with a classy honeymoon in Bali. Lucky for Johdie that she was able to get her other kids looked after by their respective fathers, except for Brooklyn’s, her Dad’s not out for another 21months. The DHS were able to place her with her ‘good parents’ that she stays with sometimes. Equally as fortunate is that Wahyne, Chooka & Macca are all miners, ‘coz you can take/sneak guests into the QANTAS club like 8 hours before you board and get smashed for FREE. Which was awesome for you and the whole bridal party, not to mention your footy club’s newly crowned reserves premiers, who were able to combine their end of season trip with your honeymoon …AWESOME!

What a pity your honeymoon was cut short because your waters broke whilst pole dancing and Mercedes was delivered on a car bonnet….ironically where she was conceived!

I’ve really enjoyed this site. Probably because it has confirmed my already strong suspicion that may ex husband’s new wife is a bogan. The buddha statue at her front door gave her away the first day. Her daughter’s names are listed here and apparently life stops at her house when Masterchef is on. My children shudder when I suggest they visit their Dad, now I understand why.

21 10 2011
Jesse

Your children will never be able to have a healthy relationship with their dad until you make friends with his new wife and stop assuming superiority towards her. To have a rich and happy life, you should befriend her daughters too since they are step siblings to your own children.

You can’t choose your husband’s new wife but you did choose your husband, and when you decided to have children with him, you took on the responsibility of working together with him for the development and happiness of your children regardless of what the future would bring.

Put the bitterness aside and admit that you are hurt because your husband has found happiness with her. You don’t have to degrade her to make yourself feel better.

5 10 2011
Brain Fart

Yep, definitely a bogan. The Buddha statue is a dead giveaway. Sneak over late at night and paint it hot pink, that’ll teach her….heeheehee

I was at a Dymocks book store the other day and (that moronic chump) Jesse James’s auto biography was on the top shelf. I am assuming bogans everywhere will be wanting to buy his autobiography on his version on why he cheated on Sandra bullock and to sympathyze with for his hard life. I reckon he wrote to manipulate the public on giving him the sympathy vote and to blame the other people involved

10 10 2011

I just thought I’d let you know I was checking out Lady gaga’s crowd outside town hall back in Sydney in July out of curiousity, anyway cut along story short I saw Richard Wilkins interviewing a few fans and without thinking I yelled out abruptly “RICHARD BOGAN WILKINS!!!” and he (yes he really did) and a few other people in the crowd turned their heads around to see who in their right mind would do such a thing. I wonder when I shouted it out he was thinking of your website god only knows, Did he tell his missus when he got back home after the event “oh some despicable guy in the crowd yelled out “Richard Bogan Wilkins” to me how disrespectful it’s probably because he was brainwashed too much by that irritating judgemental ambigeous things bogans like website that has been making me insecure for the past 6 months and making me ask questions about myself am I really a bogan?” The mystery will never be unsolved and who cares?. Yes I know it makes me a bogan to do that childish act of rude and crude behaviour but I felt I had to do it for honour in a way for you guys who are the founders of this website and in a way I guess as an unoffical messenger boy haha. I don’t intend do it again though doing my crude behaviour once is enough for that. Also just because he’s a kiwi doesn’t stop him from being a bogan check out the characters in the kiwi tv series outrageous fortune they happned to be the personification of the word bogan the kiwi equivalent and they are people like those characters luring around in New Zealand. Look at him in that pic you got on your website and on the book he’s got the accurate body language of a (cashed up) bogan and the mannerism as well

11 10 2011
Brain Fart

Don’t stress ‘fingers’, his ghastly hair,makeup, tandoori tan, plus botox made you do it. I thank you from the bottom of my bogan loving heart. I love them, I really do. Life would be so much duller without bogans to laugh at, we need them. Been living in Hoppers Crossing now for 14 months, best move I ever made. Going to the local mall is high on my list of must do’s, you should see them, gosh it’s fun. Could write a thesis on these observations, but that would be cruel. Shooting fish in a barrel is unsporting, to say the least. Keep up the good work, if in doubt…..SHOUT it out.

I find this hilarious I have worked in the mines for years now in city digging tunnels, my son and son in law are also tradies in the same job and we make a fortune 200K+ have done for years. We have big fuel guzzling 4wd’s that are great in the city for barging all the wankers in eco cars out the way, good for beach or forest action on weekends, we have boats, land in country and go overseas every year etc. I say to anyone with any drive at all to join in and go for it! let the latte sipping wankers and pushbike lycra wearing dickheads pay for our high paid jobs. funnily enough when you hit the innercity pubs its their wive and girlfriends who chat to us because they recognise some one who will give them a good time not take them to a secret laneway gig in some shithouse back street. hahahah thanks again and keep studying for those arts degrees makkas still need managers to make sure our grand kids are fed

This site seems to be attracting a lot of these drones on society. Wow you read the property pages and no I don’t work for either of these. Take a deep breath inhale a waft of latte, don the lycra and set forth on the pushy to the local free internet to carry on the key board warrior crusade. beeing a boomer as well as a cub gives me particular pleasure in thinking my consumerism may upset someone who is basically one of the leaches bringing this country down. In fact I think I will go forth in my road hog and by my grandson a massive LED tv just because I can haha this negative air is depressing!

I don’t doubt your grandson has a lot of use for a great big telly.
I see you never had much time for book learnin’s either, or is it just a comprehension problem? are you generally subject to a vague sense that you haven’t got a clue what’s going on these days? It’s probably common in your circles, perhaps it always has been.

I wouldn’t be caught dead in lycra. I won’t wrap my nuts in something I wouldn’t polish my (motor)bike with. You must be thinking of the other guy.

boomers are the greatest whingers in history. whinge whinge whinge about what’s “bringing This Country down” Ignorant, insular, greedy, self-entitled boomers are what’s brought this country down. You all reckon you got your slice and screw the rest of ’em eh? Grandkids can make do with the telly eh?
Got your caravan yet? I bet you’ve got a big hefty old nulla-nulla stashed away in there eh? Can’t be too careful. Lots of locks on the doors at home? Insurance all paid up? Thought so. You’re just another fat, frightened, aging peasant. If the muslims don’t get you, the coppers will.
Seriously though, I don’t care what you spend your hard earned on, I just think you’re shit. peasants have always been shit, it’s their role in the big beautiful circus, it’s when peasants like you start to think they’re not shit just ‘cos they bought a fancy gim-gaw that I get my nose out of joint.
200k is a commission not a wage. you’re living in a dreamland Mate. shut up and just keep spending.

We need to import heaps of g00ks and curries to tek ther jerbs. Well certainly ones like billy p00f who are on $200k a year and clearly do not deserve it. Except I bet he’s talking out his arse and makes about $70k and has debt up the arse too. That’s the thing about meatheads, they lie a lot just to piss you off because they’re g@y and they know it down to the bone. The whole boomer thing just makes it worse because they’ve had 30-40 years of adulthood to get a clue and or not be a dick.

“off the shelf personalities”
they model themselves on the commercials.

their whole sad lives imitating sad art imitating window dressed sad lives.
reminds me of my mum’s photo’s of all the boomers out at the stockman’s hall of fame in Longreach just recently: a bunch of fat, grey, suburbanites in “polarfleece” vests and hats all modeled vaguely on The Akubra (with not a skerrick of fur felt in sight – who the hell makes a cowboy hat out of leather and shade-cloth?) staring at the exhibits of The Real Australia and saying “Super” and “Beaut” and turning up the Lee Kernaghan when they get back in the Pajero to go and try and find a chemist open on a Sunday in Longreach so they can get some more coloxyl.,

where was I?

um… oh right. yeah. More than once I’ve seen 70k in used notes in a plastic shopping bag, but I don’t need to bollock on about whatever garish disposable legacy I’m plotting my spawnage, and I certainly don’t feel the need to proselytise (poorly) organised (semi) crime just to impress some moron who’s probably lying too. I built powerlines across the desert for $hitloads/hour back in the late nineties and kicked a hole in the Perth real estate market to boot. Then I stuck it all up my arm and was a homeless man in Brisbane, Sydney and adelaide for about six months by 2003. Last year we lost everything again and Yesterday I enrolled my daughter at Wilderness School and I’ll probably be dead of lung cancer before I’m fifty.
money aint shit and stuff aint shit
wtf with these people?

I still haven’t developed a fake laugh. Or rather I have, but it’s just “huegh” or something pathetic. One of the reasons I feel out of place amongst bogans. I never bought into that “I’m laughing therefore I’m happier and my life is way better than yours sucked in” shit. If there’s a god he(or she) will give me points for that.

I think I said “sweet” once, but I don’t have the tough voice to do it bogan style, and I still feel like a dickhead for it.

Check out the bluprint homes tv commercial currently screening in Western Australia. Is the dad in the commercial wearing a Travisty t-shirt?
I love the line, “and a HUGE home theater, where me and me mates can watch the BIG game! and with the money we saved, we can buy some BIG toys!” (pointing to 4WD hilux and mini cooper in driveway). Typical bogan mindset.

This is crap. Almost everything present in Australian culture could make it onto this website as a bogan ‘like’. Almost everyone can be considered partially bogan because they like some of these things. Worse than this is the way genuinely lowbrow and tasteless things (homophobia, the Herald Sun, Bin Tang singlets) are lumped in with reasonable lifestyle choices, like owning a four wheel drive, watching car racing whilst having a barbecue or enjoying bourbon. Perhaps it is the spirit in which these things are done, though there are plenty of well educated, culturally aware people who opt for elements of a bogan lifestyle.

14 12 2011

which we have all repeatedly acknowledged.
just because you like these things, it doesn’t mean you are bogan.

How much do you reckon he actually earns per hour once you factor in all the FiFo and twelve hour shifts – wondering who is fcking your wife and stalking the kids while you’re away from the castle?
In a fcking desert somewhere.
Wanking yourself to sleep in a donga. Might get to fck the odd skimpy, geology student, or enviro officer too eh? 😉 Right Fellas?
Right.
(Have you socked away enough to pay for therapy for your underfathered kids champ?)
I bet he buys them awesome birthday presents if he’s gonna be rostered on. Probly Skypes them on the day even.

He thinks he’s better than us and he’s stoked.
because he gets to buy a bunch of cool shit. and say Aussie a lot. and have opinions about boats from the North and KRudd.
200k That’s for driving a haulpak or some shit? He’s no engineer. dumb as a box of Big Dumb Hammer brand Dumb Hammers and happy as a pig in shit.

Ok, sure. My wife married me so she can cheat on me with dirty, smelly fluro wearing manual laborers haha. My wife wouldn’t attend premises you were at let alone converse, or ‘fornicate’ with bogans.

Ironic how the bogans mind immediately goes to the financial outcome of a six year university degree. It is impossible for the bogan to comprehend one pursuing education for personal growth. Perhaps one simply wants to be able to express themselves without the appalling English skills you have displayed. But then, what is the point if it doesn’t help you put another vehicle in the garage?

Bogans want money for investment houses. Houses for which they then put up the rent. The bogan then complains about those who can’t afford the high rents being homeless and cluttering up the parks for which the bogan tax dollar pays for.

Here’s the best bit. They then complain about asylum seekers jumping the queue and being given homes that should be used for the homeless. Remember them? The ones living rough because of bogan investment rents going to the moon and they deserve it because renters are losers…

I hear the chinese are a bit toey about their exposure to Italy…
but wait Mick, surely chinese domestic growth alone can sustain our ekkanommik miracle???

I was dealing with a Chinese gentleman the other day. He was trying to beat me down on something, had no engrish so drew me a graph showing Chinese growth since 1979 at 12% to 2009 and then a dip since then for the next ten years at 6-7%. Bloody tightarse. Apparently this was good justification for a 50% disacount.

Watch out, the whirlwind is coming.

16 12 2011

It’s not an economic miracle, it’s Australian exceptionalism.

Chinese domestic growth. Yes, well…if by that you mean stealing the town of Wukan off of those who own it, I say yes. Or no. I will decide later after a round of golf and sixteen schooners. Where were we? Oh yes, Wukan. It’s all about taking stuff off people to make stuff to sell back to those they stole it off but they don’t really want back anyway.

The Chinese are very good at revolutions. Why don’t they have another one? Has their capitalistic economy made them lazy? It’ll do that.

One of the sad realities of being an Australian person is having to deal with how many Aussie’s hate their own people. I think you should take a good look at yourself and ask yourself “what kind of a parasite am I that I turn on my own people”?

And you wonder why the country has never had it’s revolution?

Well … maybe that is because self righteous fuck-knuckles like yourselves inhibit the country with your inane self-loathing bullshit

Dan

I do not understand the link between the first two sentences and the last two sentences. TBL

15 12 2011
Daniel Pascoe

Okay – the link is …because we have failed to care for ourselves as a people and consistently slagged our best efforts in the name of ‘culture cringe’ which is just self hatred. We have failed to become the best society we could of possibly been (culturally/spiritually/ethically/etc). Australian people and particularly Anglo-Celtic Australian people do not need the imput of other cultures to develop as a society. We all ready were all we needed to be. It is just the powers that be and self hating Australians that failed to let this come about because of their self loathing. Sites like this that allow people to criticise Australian people about such inanities like what car they drive and what clothes they wear continue to play an active role in stopping the awareness of Australians to develop as their own people seperate and distinct from all others. And that we have a culture that has to be respected. And if you do not respect it then you should leave.

We came from nothing; we achieved everything.

Yet there is so much more we could achieve if we gave ourselves the empathy we need to do so..

If you want to promote something that is worth promoting?

now go back and actually listen. the reasoning you have been fed is simplistic, selfish and built on half truths and prejudice. It demeans our culture and insults our intellect with its shallow premises. Our culture remains strong. Generations of migrants cook their vile wog muck on barbeques in front of the footy. Their kids hot up commodores and learn to surf and talk aussie just like you and me mate. believe the evidence of your own eyes. if you can drop the confirmation bias, you’ll see for yourself. someone’s sold you a pup Champ. it’s all bullshit, or we would have been talking chinese and letting off frigging firecrackers next to some fly riddled roast duck whilst wearing Kimonos and busting out the Kung Fu A HUNDRED AND FIFTY YEARS AGO.

Wogga boi-eeeee!!

I can confirm this argument. Anecdotally, so it should be enough to convince your average bogan. My archole wog parents fed me offal and pigs feet stewed in some sort of flavourless jelly. My archole dad gave me some crappy wog name, but my mum prayed to white jesus so at least I came out blonde haired and blue eyed.

As a result of growing up in the cultural heartland town of the cultural heartland state of Australiana, B&S utes and cracking sad jokes about gay aboriginal asylum seekers, I kicked back and became a bogan. I had to smoke a lot of pot to retard my mental functions, but now I am fully assimilated.

my ancestry is recorded in the state archives of tasmania as a (5th Gen?) descendant of John Bowers and Mary Hancock, convicted (on separate occasions) at Birmingham assizes and transported to Hobart. moar caek is too complex for you to comprehend I suspect, but it’s a play on greed, illiteracy, CAPSLOCK and self actualisation.

Er, sounds like he came from the same socio economic status as you. 5th gen hardly makes him a pommie migrant. If anything it’s the poms that made the place and had the empire and shit to back it up.

Problem with you protectionists is you can’t get your shit together. You’re seperated amongst about 5-10 partys so you can’t even get registered let alone appear on a f$cking ballot paper.

and I’ve run the odd gun in my time too. but that’s a story for another magistrate,
and the ancestry prior to the birmingham assizes was welsh and french, so I got ya gaelic and yr celtic up there.
and I don’t smoke a pipe, It’s a genuine hand painted afghan hookah.
and No you can’t have any.

26 03 2012

Pretty sure moar caek said he was a 5th generation migrant, which would put his family in Australia during WW2, unless they were very short generations. So what exactly makes him less of an Australian than you, Daniel, seeing as you state that your family is Celtic ( I’m assuming Irish, as you mention Ned Kelly)?

you know what actually happens to our great minds and achievers? they are ignored by the masses who don’t give a damn about ‘intellectuals’ in ‘ivory towers’. people who instead think running down a field with a ball is the pinnacle of humanity. so the real great minds leave to go somewhere that will actually acknowledge them. or they work thanklessly here and are ignored – or even mocked – by people who watch two and a half men and think charlie sheen is funny and interesting, people who get their news from yammering shock jocks, people who religiously read gossip magazines.

so yeah you’re right, australians have achieved a lot. but the majority of people in this country would rather hear about kim kardashian’s life or listen to kyle dickhead sandilands than know that this year’s nobel prize in physics went to an australian-based researcher. and that shallowness of culture deserves to be condemned.

20 12 2011
Daniel Pascoe

okay pbee …i have thought long and hard about your deeply anti – australian sentiments …and i have a few things to say too you …number one – charlie sheen is funny …and the need for australians to identify with him just shows our level of commitment to the war on terror, that must be won at all costs …so there – no 1 is done and dusted.

number two – as for this so called phycisist that you throw in our faces as some champion of the enlightenment? …do u know what this douchebag worked out? …that the fucking universe is expanding at an excelerated rate …my dog fucking knew that! …who doesnt know that? …the guy looks like something out of ‘the boys from brazil’ and his name is ‘shmidt’ so he obviously cannot be trusted in any matter great or small …so there pbee! …there is my reply to your deep ignorance and intolerance.

That said! …i want to talk about an issue that is close to my heart …and that is ethnics walking around the streets between 6 in the morning and 6 at night …i dont think australian people whose ancestors have thought and died for this country should be subjected to the shocking visual of seeing a non-white person in the daytime …on more than one occassion i have woken up and gone outside and seen an ethnic walking down the street …on more than one occassion they have looked at me …yeah – sure! my dick was hanging out …but that is beside the point …so can you imagine what it would be like for a small white child to see a black person for the first time? …the shock and awe! …so i went to spare white people from this affront.and sure you will all agree.

so what do i propose?

i would like to see a petition sent around the whole of australia (excluding tasmania and new zealand) to see this become law in every state and territory …because if we dont the flood of non-whiteness will engulf us …it will be a mighty surge – a tsunami of ethnics rolling down the murray river pushing us out to sea where we will become food for humpback whales, great white sharks and sea turtles …can you imagine it? …22 000 000 australians bobbing up and down in the ocean just off kangaroo island being molested by emperor penguins …can u imagine your child being eaten by a 200 year old sea turtle? …can you imagine how cold the southern ocean gets at night (particularly during the winter months)? …can u imagine us sharing little whiting between whole communities of destitute australians as we wait for the next big surge blowing off the icy saline hills of antartica to chill our lilly whiteness? …can u imagine when your children ask you “if you could of done anything to stop this”? …what will you say? …what will you say as you sink beneath the waves for the last time like that ponce out of the ‘titanic’? …what will you say?

hmmm – a lot to ponder?

once again i dedicate this communicado to all aussies who believe in a bigger, WHITER’ world …god bless you all 🙂

Gotta love Christmas. Oh also helped my dad select tomorrows wines. Bin 707 and a Rockford Special Pressings Shiraz, both 2001 and then a Black Shiraz to go with pudding. 2001 Mt Edelston in reserve if we are thirsty, which us likely.

match report from xmas with senior:2001 Killkanoon Mort’s Block Cabernet Sauvignon. 1998 Grant Burge ‘Meshach Shiraz. 2005 Metala Shiraz, 2005 Orlando ‘BJT’ Basket Pressed Shiraz (bottle N0. 07141) and some ’06 Bin 389. Some poxy Hunter Valley Semilon and some cleanskin ‘reserve’ Marlborough Savvy.
Clearly Senior had decided the Alcoholic/Bogan matrix indicated holding back. Not to sound ungrateful – the Killkanoon and the Mesach were perfect… but I’m lookng forward to the 33rd Wedding Anniversary in January.
Apon arrival home I thought Katie and I could commiserate over one of our treasured Grosset Gaias, but then just as the cork sighed out of one of the ’02s it hit me like a thunderbolt “Oh No! Baek’s isn’t drinking!!!” but it was too late Simon! it was already breathing.

Sounds like Stael Caek treated you well. The cheffery was good (8.5/10), Turkey just a touch over. The Rockford Special Pressing was outstanding and still has legs, protip – mark as drink 2014. The Penfolds was substituted out of the game and a Wirra Wirra 2003 RSW Shiraz was bought in at no detriment to the line up. A Turkey Flat Butchers Block was used as top up amongst the Moet and Black Shiraz. I hold that white wine is for amateurs. Sorry Baeks had to leave you alone with that last bottle, life can be unfair at times!

subbing the RSW for the Penfolds was a masterstroke. A truly class move. Wirra Wirra had a world’s best Shiraz at London recently-ish we think? Dunno, but I would kill to find a case of ’06 Woodhenge intact. Let alone an RSW That would be the one I would trot out for the old boys in 20 years. That is if I hadn’t already drank them. Which I have.

bogans are emotionally stunted immature individuals for whom being drunk and self important are essentials. They believe the glowing reports of the aussi spirit of big hearted kindness, can do no wrong, while thier dog threatens to tear your leg off. The young bogans drink to excess and are so shallow as to believe booze is actually essential to life. They are bigots, clicky, shallow minded and have to be drunk in order to be acceptable to other bogans . Dare to ask them to desist from some sort of behaviour that is having a negative impact one oneself and face the outrage and indignation of a tiny mind that will be out to “GET YOU” in revenge. Ie “Dont tell me what to do!!” I have rights!!!
Inflicting offensive noise onto thier neighbours is thier right. Boom boom cars, a caged parrot next to your fence shrieking in confined torture. DBB blasting through your home. They love jet skis. Lots of noise makes them feel important and noticed. Variations on the Bogan are sadly a large section of society. Thoughtless, selfish, the walking dead who swell with pride when they can prove thier worth by rushing to clean up the mud after a flood. When the clean up is over, its back to bogan business as usual.

ok here is a TRUE story of a bogan family…..
i sell a product which every household uses(water) bogan or unbogan,bogan dad rings
“hey are you the fking water bloke?”
well yes iam.how can i help this fine day?

now before i go on i saw the area code of the incoming call which corresponded to a area where bogans are aplenty so odds on i wasnt speaking to someone who NASA has on speed dial

“mate we are totally fked here.the fking tank shes a fking bone dry”
“excellent well you have rung the right number to rectify”
“recca fking what,nah the retec is fine mate,we aint go no water”

after a lenghty confo with multible fk words thrown around like undies at tom jones concert by bogan dad i told him i would be there in around 45mins

“oh your a fking legend,i will have a cold jim beam ready for ya”
“its 8.30am mate”
“yeah but its after noon somewhere in the world”

i arrive at bogandowns to stock standard sight of old carbodie,bath tub in the paddock and a dockers flag hanging skewif from the garage roof.
i start backing down the very narrow driveway,greenfinger bogan planted whitegums along driveway making it a operation in skill the same as a plane refuelling mid air one false move…..
bogan dad emerges from his bogan bunker
mullet-check
flannel shirt-check
acdc tshirt=check
black levis=check
overweight=check

he starts directing me down with arms flaying widly like a big dutch windmill,i hop out of the truck and was greeted with
“fk me you did that well fella,the last cnt that tried it wiped out his mirrors..both sides”
“ok billy ray syrus wheres the tank?”

the next thing all these kids start running out from the bunker of different ages,i asked one of them
“how old are you little man?”
“i i i im fking 3”

i look at the father expecting a telling off or something but…
“yeah but you be fking 4 soon wont ya”

ive dealt with heaps of bogans over the years but that little gem is best ive come across

14 01 2012
1/250th

I came across this site thinking it would be a collection of harmless, droll observations on the “working class”, maybe flannel shirts, 80s hairstyles, being unionised and sticking it to the boss.
Then I see: Donald Trump, Louis Vuitton, Palazzo Versace, Jersey Shore, Zumba, Wii Fit, designer drugs and Ministry of Sound… contemporary indulgences. So its not quite about what I thought it was, but a new picture is coming into view.
Perhaps what defines the ‘new bogan’ is the need to project unwavering ‘normalness’ and machismo, whose self worth is determined by strength in any field except intellectual, cultural or artistic.
A ‘new bogan’ will say ‘I’m better than you because I’m STRONGER, work HARDER, earn MORE, drive a FASTER car, have TOUGHER politics, and in a contest of sex and violence, I would WIN’. Kilowatts equal credentials, modesty and politeness are for the weak. Whoever screams loudest must be strongest.
The ‘normalness’ and machismo can be gotten by buying branded goods that sell the image to everybody in sight.
I’m not saying any machismo is bad, I’m guilty of some of this myself. And, without any ‘new bogan’ machismo traits whatsoever, one might end up resembling Caspar Milquetoast.
Which brings me to something else. Those coming on here to decry this website and blame whoever dislikes boganity as ‘hipsters’, as though these are the only factions that make up society. This is stuff and nonsense.
The opposite of a bogan, or more particularly the ‘new bogan’, is simply someone that is modest. This could be a scientist that wears cardigans and drives an old Subaru. Drinks tea, not coffee. Lives in a modest suburban home, not in a McMansion.
Or an immaculately groomed evangelical Christian family with a 1950s style household and polite children. Votes conservative.
Or a hard working, modest, no nonsense outback farmer. Eats simple food because that’s what’s available, not by choice ‘because fancy food is for sissies’. He fixes his truck because its his mode of survival, not because it earns him street cred with the twats down the road he hangs out with at the local Westfield. Substance over style, function over form are the antithesis of boganity.
Reminds me of the divisiveness caused in the Republican Party in the lead up to the ’08 presidential elections when Sarah Palin was named McCain’s running mate. ‘Country Club’ Republicans didn’t want anything to do with her. They are on the conservative side of politics, however only in the fiscal sense, and they probably detected a general lack of brilliance on Palin’s part as well (the subject of Palin’s bogan appeal could be a topic for another day). You don’t need to be a democrat to hate Sarah Palin, just as you don’t need to be a lefty to hate bogans.
So there you go, next time you get called a hipster or foreign for being a fan of TBL, you’ve got at least 3 valid defences. Try being MORE CONSERVATIVE and TOUGHER ON ELITISTS than a right wing Christian!

That is such a bogan trait. Thinking they have a monopoly on “hard work”. F#cken idiots. You’re mostly a bunch of year 10 dropout dead shits. Who puff themselves up to make up for the fact that you’re a bunch of meatheads. The average non-bogan could train up to do your job in about a month and you know it which is why you hide behind your unions and bullshit tradie licensing requirements to stop the g00ks and curries from coming in and doing your jobs.

If you think you’re so good move to the US where you’ll be paid about a third of what you get here. You’re just as bad as those overpaid libtard ivory tower dwellers which is why you both vote Labor.

Mind you atm I would prefer Labor but not because I want to be paid $100k to be a lollypop man and if I were one I sure wouldn’t think I was king shit for hiding behind a union.

ah James! there you are!
My God, I had a massive old Solo years ago.
it may have been my first saw…
the thing must have been about 90cc and still had the manual bar oiler. I used to fill it up with old sump oil and just pump frantically. By jingo I had some powerful forearms back in those days! I had the (everhot?) wood burning stove with the hot water built in so it got plenty of use. We had a kerosene telly too. not bad, but you had to turn it off and wipe the soot off the screen every hour. I did a year with a tree surgeon a while back, I got right into it, loved working on a saw. from memory I had an 044 (or o48?) magnum and a litlle 020 lopping saw. awesome pro. saws. These days I just have a sad little 023 farm boss. Fortunately the fire is just for ambience these days.

meet a Greenie who loves chain saws, I’m also a pacifist who loves guns! that’s just a little more about me….

any chance of seeing you at fringe this year?

I had a Husqvarna .280 hunting rifle once, with a 6.5×55 scope.
It was beautiful.
When I got married, the wife said she didn’t want it in the house, and with kids around, that made sense.
It was the only thing I’ve ever sold, and made a profit on.

Bogan Spotter

And as we head towards Australia day wondering which city will win the “Best Race Riot” awards for 2012, you can witness the sad plethora of cheap Australian Flags being attached to the wintows of bogan charriots of all shapes and sizes. Don’t get me wrong, I do like our flag just as it is, but the bogans could at least have the decency to source and purchase ones that are manufactured in Australia. But no, in order to save a couple of dollars, they will, in their Bundaberg or Jim Beam induced haze, buy the one that has “made in China” on the label. Yes Bogans are proud of Australia, just so long as it doesn’t cost them too much.

24 01 2012

Well, um, I’ve stuck a small, um, foreign made Aussie flag on my post box, coz I’m a proud Aussie, but I sure as heck aren’t a bogan.
I do it every Australia Day, and ANZAC Day.
At least the bouge and bougettes Bundaburg induced haze is Aussie, or are they making that in China now?
Someone should check…….I wouldn’t put it past Diageo, the huge Pommy corporation that owns the Bundy brand name…..

slight tangent, but what i’ve always found odd about the ultrapatriotic flag wavers is how terrified they are of any criticism of the country. it’s worse in the usa but we’re going the same way, with so many people seeming to hold the opinion that to ever say things are less than awesomely perfect that you’re an unaustralian traitor. it’s that ‘love it or leave it’ attitude which simply shows morons are too dumb to understand that such a thing as constructive criticism exists, let alone that australia actually isn’t heaven.

tony abbot tuff talking the border defence line sounded pretty down south tea party to me. I see an aussie flotilla of citizens militia patrolling off ashmore reef, pissed, calling the navy in on suspected illegal refugees. Corey Bernardi can hand out ‘impromptu’ banners – Bomb the Boats & BѠBs lol!!! and administer the Grass Roots refuelling station and Ammo Lounge.

I think the flag has been utterly defiled by jingoism and the fact that the average Australian these days is about as Aussie as the average con man. It’s meant to be about being a man but Australians are for the most part a bunch of gaylords.

Yeah, but kind of gay too. It’s like they’re trying so hard to not be gay that they’re gay. I reckon a lot of them secretly are stinging for some cock, what goes on in jail is proof of this.

Reporting live from Bright.

I bought a carton of beer Monday for our trip. The dude offered me an Aussie flag for my car which I declined. He said “can’t give these things away”. Guess I wasn’t in a bogan suburb.

Have you been to jail and dropped the soap Martin?

I’d never go to jail I’d last about 2 seconds.

perhaps it’s in the name Simon. For example if you had been buying a carton of beer in Dolt, I doubt there would be a single Aussie flag to spare.

If you say anything conservative arsehole poiticians or shock jocks or uber- bogans-with-access-to-TV-air-time don’t like, they call you “un-Australian”, even if your mob has been here for, like, 150 years.
Prime example – John Howard played the un-Australian rhetoric when the majority of the population said we shouldn’t go to war against Iraq.
That little creep is still in the game too, pulling Tony Rabbitts strings.

sick of white trash bogans

I think the latest bogan drink is Rekorderlig, at least here in Perth. It’s probably been around for ages, I don’t know, I don’t go out that often any more, but now when I do go out pretty much every bogan is swigging a Rekorderlig, and whenever I go to the bottle shop it seems at least one bogan is buying a pack.

Another thing bogans like is ‘Premium’. Not premium anything in particular, but premium everything. I guess it makes them feel like they have succeeded in their aspirations, they are successful enough that they can afford to pay for premium, and they are of such good taste and discernment that they can identify, say, a premium potato chip from a non-premium potato-chip. It helps that many premium brands state ‘premium’ on the packaging.

It’s ironic that the writer criticizes a bogan for actually trying something new – other then whatever passes for beer or wine as swilled out in Perth.

It’s good Swedish cider. Maybe you’ll luck out on a blonde should you imbibe some. Or stick to a chardonnay if you want to play safe, I don’t care.

sick of white trash bogans

LOL @ DP!!! Am I to assume that you are a fan of Rekorderlig? A good mate of mine in the industry in Melbourne assures me that Rekprderlig id generally drunken by bogans who think they know about cider and think it is a good cider, when it is in fact far from it. I’m not saying you are definitely a bogan, you might be an exception…

As for the “beer and wine swilled out” here… Having recently moved here from Adelaide, where some decent wine is produced (maybe you’ve tried some?), I’m still getting my head around the wines here. I’ve already had some good ones though.

What is a Bogan?
When the term bogan first arrived in the 1980s it was simple. A bogan was some semi-educated lower class Australian living in the outer suburbs or small country towns. It is interesting to see the word coming back into use but it is differently now, it is used vindictively. In the 1980s people would admit to begin a bogan but now nobody does. What has changed to Australia where once we were supposed to be egalitarian but now there is barely controlled hatred for tradesmen from university graduates; whom I suspect are the majority of people writing on this site. I lay the blame on encouraging two thirds of the population to get university degrees, many of which are partially or entirely useless and provide graduates with limited real skills. This is large scale fraud. Tradesmen, however have skills and can do useful tasks. They deserve the pay they are earning. So if you are an media studies graduate with a HECs debt and work as a government bureaucrat writing reports and emails that nobody ever bothers to read do not direct your anger towards the electrician who earns three times your wage and is spending it without the discretion or middle class taste. Direct your anger at the governments and education systems that launch mediocre students into an inflated university system to prepare them for work that does not exist.

“They deserve the pay they are earning.”

No they do not. Well some of them do, some of them are cool, some of them are even underpaid, but there’s also a lot of them who are overpaid and are rip off bastards. Just as I agree there are a lot of white collars who are overpaid and should be sacked. Like anyone in HR.

We need to import more tradies imo and get women working in HR back in the kitchen. Make my dinner.

Hello, Newbie here.
After reading through some comments, especially the ones defending the bogan’s. I don’t think the intention of this site was to criticize what certain people wear or eat – these things don’t really matter.

Bogans are rude, ignorant, mostly uneducated, sometimes racist, sexist, quite often criminal, shameless people and is a culture within its own. The Bogan culture just like any other culture or group of like minded people share characteristics and similarities and their similarities are what people are listing here – 4wds, Ed Hardy, babies at 15, fluffy pink Playboy merchandise ect. People claiming that the site is hating on Australians is utter garbage, bogans are bogans and there are many Australians out there with class and self respect who detest these lowlife bogans for even claiming that they represent Australia and true Australians. Bogans are not the pinnacle of true Australianism and are just as detested by respectful Australians as they are by any other nationality that has to experience these lowlifes in this country. Pointing out truths about a certain type of people does not make people hateful, same way it does not make a person racist for pointing out another’s racist behaviour. It is the truth, and well done on people for pointing out the truths.

On a slightly different note, another aspect of boganism, which I don’t think has been touched on, is Bogan cops. The police force seems to be filled with them. Racism, Sexism and even favouring like-minded Bogans are not beneath them and if anything is a gateway for Bogan cops to express their hatred and ignorance. I see it happen so often it sickens me. Ugh.

Orrhhh, I got a sore belly from laughing at these comments, but that doesn’t mean i find the subject to be a joke. Boganism is very real and evidence that Australia has some serious problems with its society and culture.

Perth is the Epicentre of Boganism! Both old and the new CUB’s are in their complete element over here. The mining boom has given the bogan serious clout and they now openly challenge the yuppie for superiority on the streets and airport terminals. The Bogan is thriving in the West and they’re loving it. One thing i’ve noticed a lot, its actually Ok to be racist and comment openly about your dislike of foriegn visitors and migrants. The W.A Bogan is proud and cares little about what others from the East think.

I think they are deserving of their own title, “Wabogns”. They have surely earnt it.

Haha I guess you would be one of these fuckwits that gushes when a celebrity visits Sydney and states they love “Australia” or one that goes to Hollywood and loves America or one that sips their latte whilst bemoaning the bogan as you collect your double dipping government paid maternity leave, child support handout and baby bonus and every other welfare benefit you can get your hands on, and you cunts have the gall to bemoan the bogan. If none of the above then a fuckwit none the less.

In answering the question, “What is a bogan?” one must bear in mind that, conservatively speaking, 90% of all Australians can be regarded as bogans, in that their behaviors are predominantly bogan-esque.

Wow. I stumbled across this website and assumed it was light hearted humor, however it is evident by certain comments and opinions that individuals really believe a “bogan” is a parasite. I am dumbfounded at the idiocy of such revelations. What ever happend to “live and let live”?

I have several friends who are “bogans” and tertiary educated alike, we all are accepting of the each other based on common traits, not individual preferences.

This form of elitism on either side is why our beautiful country is going down the proverbial drain. Why cant we be more accepting of our differences within? We have such emphasis on multiculturalism, yet we cant allow our own Australian differences.

I identify with both, without our “bogan-isms” Australia wouldnt be the laid back and carefree country we are. Likewise with the educated community, Australians would still see “spag-bog” as a foreign treat.

Interesting. Most of the traits you list as bogan, at one time were considered exclusively the domain of inner city wankers. Its a bit like watching the hiphop community cry over skaters stealing their style.

Perth has a serious bogan problem, and its growing fast with the FIFO’s increasing. I have a theory that if a non bogan spends enough time with a bogan, they will eventually become a bogan, this is happening in mining!
