    Next time I visit I'm going to be looking more closely...
    Ah but formal living areas are only bogan if they are in the house of a bogan. Which is obviously where the lines blur.

    Here are two more articles on the modern bogan:

    I think the bogan has evolved since the 70s/80s. No more is it about flannos, cheap grog and Shazza/Bazza/Dazza etc.

    These days, many bogans are cashed-up. Tradies are traditionally bogan (some moreso than others), but these days they're working at the mines and earning a small fortune.

    I think it's harder to spot a bogan these days than it would have been in the past... and it's usually a collection of many things that makes someone a bogan. Just because you do one bogan thing doesn't make you a bogan... but it's a combination of doing bogan things that makes you one. It's why it's so hard to pinpoint what is bogan and what isn't.

    Shane Warne is a cashed-up bogan.

    Wow this is starting to get complicated lol. I'm definitely planning on looking for more boganlike traits next time I visit my mother :d
