You could write an article about Bogan word usage, such as using “loose” in place of “lose”?

CUB. Cashed Up Bogan. Old school bogan’s had flannies, loved the chisel & shagged in the back of a panel van. These new bogans are lame.

23 03 2011

They’re quite ghastly aren’t they. At least the old school bogan knew it’s place and was quite aware and comfortable with how inferior it was. Well, maybe not completely, but relatively speaking.

11 11 2011

Just wondering: do you prefer your ‘bogans’ poor? If they are rich, does that really offend you?

“Un-Australian” makes me want to reach for the vom bucket. When you boil it all down it is such an arrogant and bigoted thing to say.

It’s a term used to justify their mob mentality. I take it as a compliment because it means I am not following anything vaguely resembling bogan terminology.

It has become a bit much.
Anything some 20 cent millionaire doesnt agree with they automatically label it bogan. Things Aussies and Wogs have done for years.

There are a few people on this website who label anything ‘bogan’ just because they feel like it.

Pffft half the people on this site fit in to the category of hipster.

That’s 1000000 times worse than bogen could ever be. lol

On the very reasonable assumption that there IS intelligent life “out there”, with high-speed (trans light speed) capability, why are “they” not visiting us and assisting in our development?

. . . They read sites like this, do the basic research, and come to the inevitable conclusion; “avoid that third inhabitable planet, around “that” star on the outer western spiral of “that” Galaxy – they are all nutters / ferals / NOT “Mostly Harmless”!!

Boys and Girls – welcome to the equivalent of the Galactic Boondocks / Trailer Park!

Deep fat fryers (in their own home).

Mirrored wardrobe doors.

A perception that minorities (esp. Aborigines and Muslims) get special treatment from the government and cannot be convinced otherwise despite piles of evidence to the contrary.

A sense of pride in being ignorant.

Scientists and intellectuals are elitist wankers trying to destroy the “Australian way of life”. Except for the ones that invent the stuff they like.

24 10 2011
Jesse

I own a deep fryer. With it I make french fries, doughnuts and tempura. My wife makes whitebait fritters and Dutch doughnuts.

24 10 2011

Seriously, does owning a deep fryer (and using it) make me a bogan?

Actually what is a bogan? How can you be sure this category even exists?

Same here I cook all sorts of stuff in mine,

In fact the average bogan gets his greasy food cooked at the local take away….

I use it once in a blue moon but there is some shit you just can’t cook any other way…

18 04 2012
chi chi

The bogan sees the deepfryer as the ultimate kitchen appliance……it can cook all their favourite foods. Defiantly a bogan measurement. It ticks all the boxes.

someones jealous that they have to pay us bogan tradies to come out and fix there house/cars/ect while there sitting in there 9-5 desk job wondering if there wives are staying faithful to them, thats another thing we like saying bogan proud

22 05 2011
Tom

Um, just because you’re a tradie it doesn’t make you a bogan? Also, there are fucking millions of bogans in desk jobs, it is a very bogan profession as well!
also, your comment didn’t make any sense, why would the wives of a non-bogan cheat? :S

Grammar Nazi

*someone’s, *their, *they’re, *their, *that’s.

Another trait for a bogan:

Someone who doesn’t know the difference between there, their and they’re and doesn’t place an apostrophe where necessary.

11 11 2011
Jesse

Actually, that’s not necessarily an indication of anything. People who type fast make mistakes with spelling. A spelling error on a blog posting isn’t very serious….

11 11 2011
James Hunter

People who are obsessed by trivia realy need to go spend some quality time looking for a life. Most likely they wouldn’t recognise it when they found it.
These type fold the ends of the toilet paper and paper napkins, they wear the paint of their cars by washing the objects of their adulation twice a week.
Most likely have air freshners in every room and alcohol hand gel dispensers along side.
Most often you will find they have un-naturally tidy desk tops saying to anyone who listen that an orderly desk is the sign of an orderly mind.
I prefer to trell them that an empty desk is the sign of an empty mind !
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Actually, anyone who drives a car is a bogan!! If you don’t want to be a bogan, you should walk, ride a bike, take a bus, train or taxi.

Private car ownership is the most bogan thing in the world

‘Asian’ Food – I work in a Malaysian restaurant and I wish i get a dollar for every bogan who comes in and ask if we sell dim sims. And when they find out that we don’t they start asking me about Chinese food ‘staples’ like sweet and sour pork/ honey chicken and then move on to Thai food items like Pad Thai. They usually settle for a special fried rice and some ‘roti bread’ and (mild) curry. You would think that they would have read the menu before coming into the restaurant but who am I kidding, they probably don’t understand half of it anyway.

They probably think that since all Asian people look the same, their food must be similar too.

This seems insensitive. If someone erects a memorial to a loved one who has died, I don’t think there’s any reason to attack them. It is a cheap shot to label everyone who has died in traffic accidents as a “drunk-driver”. It is pretty mean-spirited!!

1. Thinking that the Mad Max trilogy is a lifestyle documentary, and Jersey Shore is ‘lifestyles of the rich and famous’… to be aspired to.

2. Having Zyzz as a role model (or Katie Price, if you are a boganita).

3. failing to understand that all the cars at Bathurst are THE SAME FUCKING CAR, just some are red and some are blue (confused by the slightly different shaped headlights).

4. Thinking that using terms like ‘Mirrin’ and ‘Jelly’ makes them cool.

5. Telling you the story of their tattoo.

6. Telling you about how much fun they had in London – going to The Church, the running of the bulls, the Bavarian beerfest, and then travelling round Europe in a kombi for 2 months before heading back to Oz. Via Thailand.

7. Watching ‘Outrageous Fortune’ ritually, then posting about it on Facebook.

8. Thinking it’s really funny to walk around London wearing a t-shirt that says “I support The All Blacks/Wallabies (pick personally relevent bogan rugby heroes) … and anyone playing against England”.

9. Believe that hanging a tarp along the edge of the deck is home renovation

10. Believe that lino and formica are perfectly acceptable products for home and pub

11. Beleive that a rats tail or platted pony-tail are acceptable hair styles for men (and are secretly waiting for the mullet to make a comeback).

12. Fail to understand why ‘The Castle’ is such a funny movie.

Yep, Bogans love certainty. You should hear some of the footy journos whinging about how they have to wait until the end of the year to find out what people like Tom Scully and Mick Malthouse are going to be doing next year. They want it to be like the NRL where players and coaches often announce that they’ll be moving on at the end of the season well before the season is over. But what difference does it make if you find out now or later on?

Re certainty: How upset was the media with Ross Lyon? They obviously resented the fact that he left StKilda for Freo because

a) He blindsided them.

b) They didn’t leak the story first

c) They missed out on speculating about Mark Harvey getting the sack, which they love to do because when they speculate about a coach getting sacked and then he gets sacked it makes them feel important.

You can add the Royal Melbourne Show as a thing Bogans Like. I went there today and my God the Bogans were disproportionately represented. I reckon there’s another website in it. It could be like the People of Walmart site and feature user-submitted photos of overweight, poorly dressed, or awkward looking people at the various Royal Shows from around Australia. It’d be hilarious.

11 11 2011

Since you were there, doesn’t that make you a bogan?? If ‘attendance at the royal melbourne show’ is something that you are proposing is an indicator of boganity, then you just ticked that box, huh?

I think The Castle is loved by most Australians, whereas Kath & Kim fell into the “beating a dead horse” category a long time ago… so is therefore almost exclusively loved by just the bogans.

I think the more disturbing trend I’ve seen lately comes from facebook photos of the bogan male posting a picture of himself with his mates, completely naked, holding and covering his ball sack and dick up with his hand while posing in some erotic fashion. It boggles my mind that this isn’t deemed gay at all with their usually rampant homophobic attitudes, just crazy good LOL fun with ur mates. Fucking idiots.

Cycling is actually the ultimate anti-bogan sport. It doesn’t use up any petrol or other fossil fuels, it requires fitness and endurance, lycra (which the bogan is undoubtedly wont to say something homophobic about), paying a reasonable amount of money for something other than a car with a V8 engine or a huge TV, and most rides take a few hours, more time than the bogan is prepared to invest in anything besides watching the Bathurst 1000.

I must say I am quite shocked TBL has left out the one of bogan’s favourite things. You’ve touched on it briefly, and I was given a glimmer of hope thinking it would be expanded upon at a later date. Unfortuntely not. I am suprised TBL has mentioned racism and homophobia without sexism. Sexism and misogyny is a huge part of the bogan landscape.

I dunno. I used to find this site amusing a year or two ago but recently I reckon it’s been going downhill. I agree the old flannelette shirt, mullet, VB, packet of Winfield stereotype is becoming increasingly irrelevant but I can’t help thinking you’re trying to completely redefine the word “bogan”. This site also seems to be showing more of a political agenda. I’m no fan of Andrew Bolt but I can see two sides to that one. Despite all the howls of “political correctness gone mad” I don’t think it’s quite as simple as he’s been shown to be a racist in court and only a bogan would think otherwise. Besides isn’t saying “this is my point of view and anyone who disagrees is a bogan” pretty much the same as a “bogan” saying “this is my point of view and anyone who disagrees is a faggot”? Btw if this site goes full circle and turns in on itself to the point where everyone’s a bogan I saw it coming.

Yes, bogans and non-bogan civil libertarians found themselves oddly aligned on the Bolt case – it was an amusing alliance. TBL

Fick – Thick

Fiona of Mount Lawley

Neither. When I was in school, we were taught phonics. They don’t do this anymore, sadly.

The articulation of speech is a skill, and skills are the result of education. Some sounds are harder to form than others. The “th” sound is one of them. In their formative years, teachers and parents either oblige children to repeat until they have it right, or say “Eh, that’s near enough”. Consequently some people never learn to pronounce some of the diphthongs.

Some numpties may even decide that a child’s speech impediment is cute and not only fail to remedy it, but encourage it. Something which is adorable in a ten year old, is pitiable in a thirty year old.

Irregularities in the formation of the buccal cavity, particularly the hard palette, make certain sounds harder or impossible to learn.

I expected this list to be funny, but it was pretty unamusing. Many of the items listed aren’t representative of the bogan population, so it’s not accurate enough to be humorous. Take a trip out to Blacktown and do some research.

Some of the titles are deliberate decoys. All are hyperlinks to articles that explain in detail. However, we agree with all of your points, and are willing to offer you a 100% refund on your money. TBL
