    I sold mine because it was just way to heavy. I wanted something lighter and easier. I didn't know they were a bogan pram until I joined BH though?!

    Things like ugg boots, thongs & track suit pants alone do not make you a bogan. I know lots of people who joke about being bogans for having a southern cross tattoo or driving a ford ute etc but they really aren't bogans.

    I've worked in a certain victorian eastern suburb for 10 years almost and it's known for bogans. The same ones who live out that way are always hanging around the park and shops during the week in the afternoon, drinking cans of Woodstock (cheap bourbon) smoking, swearing a lot and sometimes arguing and fighting with each other. Loudly.
    They cause scenes and just behave like animals. Literally off the set of the show Housos (mentioned earlier)
    I sometimes get approached by them on my break "how ya goin love, can I bum a smoke off ya?" (I dont even smoke! they just assume) Or they will ask for money to use the phone box. I had one once ask me to sell a phone to 'cashies' for him and bring him back the money because he didnt have any ID. I saw some another day (male & female couple in their 30s) screaming & arguing in the middle of the street because the dad spent their money for Easter eggs on alcohol!
    Pretty much, the kind of behaviour you would expect from naughty teenage boys on school holidays, not 30-40 year olds!

    Sorry for my rant lol

    I'm not perfect at all, but these kind of bogans just bring the suburb down :-/

    Noone has mentioned bingtang singlets. Total bogan requirement.

    You want to try the flight back from Bali - its called the Bogan Express. Full of nasty hair braids, bingtang singlets, fake tattoos and frangapani hair clips.

    What does a coffee table have to do with bogans?

    I think this goes some way towards explaining it. It's the 'aspirational' aspect.

    Huh I'd never heard of those being bogan before. I guess my parents must have been bogans since their house has both. The dining room just became a short cut through to the formal lounge room, which was mainly used when i was hosting parties as in had the best stereo!

    Next time I visit I'm going to be looking more closely...
