Ever seen Houseos on SBS? Youtube it. That is Bogan lol.
Also Commodores, Trackies with thongs, 'Use dunnos whacha effing talkin bout' sort of talking (you know, horrible English that sounds really scungy) ummm I can't think of any more examples that I throw into bogan.
Interesting...I think the way it's used is generally less "self-deprecating" than "other-deprecating" (not a word, I know, but perhaps you take my meaning.)
I think the general use of bogan was often quite a masculine concept (mullets, V8s, beer etc etc) but it's expanded over time. I do think the BubHub Bogan ("Bubogan?") seems a more fluid and entertaining concept.

I call dp a bogan when he listens to AD/DC. When he moved in I refused to let him put up his ACDC print up inside because I didn't want to be known of living in a brogan house .
I've come to the conclusion that I'm a bogan by BH's standards... I wear thongs with trackies, uggies outside, own a coffee table and put head bands on my babies.
I think there are different extremes of bogansim...varying from slightly... to don't ever leave the house and please for the love of god don't ever breed!
Bogans unite in this thread.
I had a coffee table but we had to put it away so DD had space to play.
DD has her ears pierced and I have put a headband on her once or twice.
I like Holdens and I wear thongs with everything......!
Bogans display a general lack of sophistication in their choices.
I think most of us do, say or own something that would be considered to be 'bogan'.
I don't think people should take too much offence if they are accused of making bogan choices. Chances are the person accusing you of being bogan has a little bogan in them too
