In celebration of the Bogan

Skids, ned, chavs and assorted white trash rejoice. Australia’s bogans have finally been given official recognition by none other than the Oxford English Dictionary. It’s not yet clear how the word is to be defined but if they’re still taking suggestions I’d like to submit one:


bogan (boh-guhn) – noun and occasionally adjective. Defintion, this:


I’ll be growing a mullet and getting a Carlton tattoo immediately.

    Dear Messrs Cameron, Clegg, and Milliband,

    Take your PC and stick it where the Sun don’t shine.

    I like these Aussies, they are real people, which is more than I can say for you three.

    Regards etc,

    I think my Carlton (draught, of course) tattoo and (somewhat sparse) mullet are really cool.

    What?!?! Bleedin’ moderation on your site AE? Have you been under attack from the trolls? Gawd, what is this world coming to….

      First time moderation has always been switched on. You’ve come through on a new IP – so WordPress thinks you are a new commenter.

      How are things in Athens at the moment?

      Not my site, mate. I’m just one of the orphans who contributes now and then. Having said that I do have the same first time comment moderation on at my place as well, though I’m pretty sure you’re approved.

        It’s a badge of honour to be first-timed.
