Just intrested to find out everyones secret (or not so secret) bogan habits? What makes you a bogan? Or what do you think makes you seem like a bogan even though you don't consider yourself to be one?? i personally love bogans and I think they are the salt of the earth! I dont think I am a true bogan but I definatly have some bogan tendancies..

for example -


i have various visiable tattoos

I sometimes let the kids stay in thier pjs, or just nickers and or nappy if its hot all day long..

I often play pool with hubby in the back shed/man cave while having a sneaky social ciggie and drinking beer and or wine after the kids have gone to bed

I swear!! I know, shocking hey...

i love watching the rugby with the hubby and his truely bogan mates and swearing at the ref

i wear thongs...all the time....

I own a pair of cut off denim shorts with holes ripped in them...

What can you add to this list?? Can you do me one better?

My baby was quite possibly conceived on the bonnet of the ute.  On a surfing / camping in the sand dunes trip.

I dont have/do any of the things you just mentioned but i dont think that makes you any more/less of a bogan than me. What does it really matter? Who cares - do you want to be the biggest bogan?!

If you're concerned you're a bogan than stop! If not - keep going. Simple as that. I frankly coudnt give a rats who's a bogan and who's not. Got bigger fish to fry.

No, I can't better you. But i am now thinking of starting an " are you a bigger dork than me?" thread. But then again, it would be too depressing when i won hands-down.

Yeah I'm not ashamed to say I also have bogan tendencies.

I like 3/4 pants.

I often don't get out of my pyjamas (not even for school drop offs!)

Thongs 99% of the time.

I smoke.

I swear.

I own a coffee table.

I let my kids go wild on sultanas, yoghurt, and numerous other "bad" things.

I give my 9mth old the occasional maccas chip.

I love beer.

I own an old car, purely because I see a new one as a waste of money for something that just gets from a to b.

I have a tattoo.

I let my kids be grubs, they love it!

There's no doubt many more...but I don't care, I'm happy, my kids are happy, life is good in my bogan little world  tthumbs.gif

I have two staffy x's.

We have a couch on our front porch.

I freaking love beer.

I ****ing love swearing.

I yell obscenities at other drivers when I'm driving, and pull faces.

I have a tramp stamp, but in my defense I had it done when I was eighteen and they were tres cool back then.

ACDC gets me kinda hard.

Eh???? I think the OP was starting a bit of a 'fluff' thread. Why so serious?

I wear Uggs in public.
In Australia that makes me a bogan, in the UK it makes me a chav.

I also have many other bogan traits.

All I can think of is I like my beer in a Pint glass (my, now husband, when we met tried to tell me ladies don’t drink out of Pint glasses, he soon learnt ), other than that not much (not from lack of trying ) we fed our son a McDonalds fry once but he preferred a olive/fetta and salami sandwich, I tried to feed him fish fingers but he prefers fresh salmon on a bed of spinach with a drizzle of olive oil (all true but where did we go wrong). Unfortunately what is not true but i have a strange feeling people believed me, I said on here once that we let our son (5) drive us home after we have a few but as we don’t own a car he has to help us stagger home on the bus!

After reading this thread (alright maybe not all) I really can’t say we do anything on here (we own a coffee table but use it at the side of the loungs/sofa not the front, does that count?)

Any tips on raising our bogan profile will be greatly appreciated.

Firstly I didn't know that owning a coffee table makes you bogan?  Can someone enlighten me?  

Okay, so I have two things that are considered bogan:  coffee table and a strong liking for Sizzler biggrin.gif

Bogans are the most maligned species on EB.

I don't have any discernable bogan traits, but i have bogan roots:

I grew up on a bogan (houso) estate;

I went to a bogan school;

I dropped out of the bogan school aged 15;

I married an Englishman who loves bogan cars (current model V8 commodore with bogan detailing).

We live in the bogan western suburbs with our 2 kids.

I also have a bogan attitude whereby I hate snobs and don't give rats a*se about most things which give people status anxiety.

And for those who think they are socially superior to bogans, our snotty English friends think all Austalians are bogan!

I can burp the alphabet and can beat anyone in a burping contest. Having said that, I haven't done these things for a long time.

I too easn't aware that having a coffee table made someone a brogan. Isn't is a place to put some books, the remote, TV guide, a drink.

#19 BadCat

Posted 10 December 2012 - 11:16 AM

I swear.

Um...

Actually, no I don't tend to bogue out very much.

Oh wait, I've been known to go to international sporting events and do the Aussie Aussie Aussie thing.  That would have to be bogan right?

#20 back*again

Posted 10 December 2012 - 11:17 AM

80% of the time I wear thongs, the other 20% is ugg boots (in winter).

My kids go barefoot all the time

Around the house, my youngest children are often in the nud.

I swear a lot (would put most bogans to shame I think).

I eat cold baked beans out of the tin

My 3yo can burp on command

Probably a million other things that I don't realise.....I didn't know thongs, uggs & barefoot children made me bogan until I read it on EB Tounge1.gif
