    @Party of Three, you have succinctly and perfectly described what I think of when brainstorming bogan. I don't get how those others things equal bogan either...is it because they seem a bit 'try hard' in their delay to board the 'predictables' bandwagon?

    These can be regarded as cashed up bogans. Bogans who are middle income rather than low so buy extravagant stuff to cover up that they are still bogans Not that I think the things you list in isolation make someone a CUB.

    O I see! That was genuinely helpful! A 'money can't buy taste/originality' thing...?

    I'm boges and totally proud of it.

    Trackies and thongs in public (sneakers if it's cold). Mostly my Swarovski thongs.

    Major regrowth atm.

    Diehard Big Brother tragic.

    Zodiac tat AND a tramp stamp.

    Had the same nose stud in since last century.

    I love my metal.

    Own a thermomix. (Not convinced by this addition, neither :-p)

    Partial to UDLs and Beam in a can.

    Swear like a sailor.

    Adore Eminem.

    I'm sure there's more. I honestly don't get how people get offended by this stuff. It's all in fun :-)

    If you were truly bogan that would read "moccies if it's cold".

    If you refer to the crystal studded thongs as 'classy' however + added to your penchant for premix, you might just redeem yourself as a true boge.

    I didn't refer to my thongs as classy because I didn't realise they could be considered anything but! This one Thai stripper at the $ex show I went to in Bangkok fully loved them sick...

    This site cracks me up....

    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.
