  • How to be a bogan

    (Geez, 'ope I'm not talkin' from 'speerience 'ere. Yeah...nah.)

    Drop those pesky gs. Always be goin' somewhere, or doin' somethin'

    The names of everyone you know have to end in "sy": Bracksy, Maxy or "o": Jacko, Peto, Dicko,

    You live in Straya

    You never go to the football ---you go to the footy.

    Meat pies and sausage rolls take pride of place in your cuisine.

    Never say dollars when everyone knows they are bucks.

    You're not a slave to fashion, so you safely stay a couple of decades behind.

    Your pride and joy is the lowered ute

    If you can't afford that ute, make sure your 30-year-old car has one door of a different colour

    No point in having hidden tattoos, so both sides of the neck make the perfect canvas

    Getting drunk is your birthright, so proudly boast about it

    Begin your conversation with “yeah, nah”

    When carrying a slab from the bottle shop, perch it on your shoulder.

    Make sure it's Victoria bitter, Melbourne bitter or xxxx in Queensland

    You don't offer mates a beer -- you offer them a coldie

    You've been light years ahead of the media in dropping the C-bomb

    Next to the pub, your most frequented venue is Centrelink

    You've never heard of Noosa but know the Rosebud tea trees like a second home

              Invidious discrimination. They're no different than anyone else from Papua New Guinea. For shame.

                      They're so desirable, as neighbours, that the Department of Human Services won't disclose where they live. I can only suppose it's to prevent property speculators from unfairly profiteering on the sudden rise in property values. But, being the good citizens that they are, they do leave clues for those in the know.

                      Ps the people who make the rules miss out (on having such desirable neighbours) because they typically live in the more affluent suburbs. Almost as if they planned it that way.

                        Fair enough. They seem to think everyone else is fair game. Including their own, judging by their constant bickering.

                        Ps first hand experience unfortunately. When I purchased my house I naively checked things like stumps, termites and other relative trivialities, when I should have been checking out who the hell my neighbours were going to be.

                        Ps 2 does make life interesting though - but not in a good way.

                          I'm not a big fan of Bogans but the facts of life are that no matter how much your pay for your house you can end up with one next door.
                          In the final analysis however, my experience is that when you need a helping hand, a Bogan is the one that is most likely to provide it, rather than your snobby professional next door.
                          Your snobby professional likely has a Bogan wife or parents and wants to distance themselves from them.
                          By the time you get to my age you have seen it all and tend to accept people for who they are (their actions) rather than the superficial 5h1t that so many manifest.

                            Who is Shazza? .....oh Shaggs!

                            It was different here in WA. Bogan was never a derogatory term, the way it was in sydney. It was a black Levi 501, desert boot 'ripper sole', 80s glam metal fan. Mullet was preferred.
                            The title has broadened over last 20yrs, and become more of a insult.

                            Excuse me while I chuck on a bit of old Ozzy

                              The epithet "bogan" is perhaps a little broad and misleading. Apologies.
                              I was referring to the, in your face, antisocial element that usually, but not always, avail themselves of public housing and handouts. Any right you may think you have to private property, quality of life or safety means nothing to them.
                              The loud music, fighting, barking, revving, at all hours. The intimidation, drug dealing, feral kids, you name it, it's all their God given right and the neighbours and cops be damned.

                              Ps I'll take your "snobby professionals" over that, anytime.

                              Ps 2 Rocky, I'm envious of you. You obviously haven't had the pleasure.
