A fascinating beast. The majority of the species are hideously repugnant and unintelligent, and yet they manage to breed in ever-increasing numbers and populate an area known as the outer west. It is quite common to find five or six offspring in each family group, often with a different father for each new baby.
Their habitat consists of a weatherboard or brick-veneer dwelling and is characterised by an early-model Holden or Ford in the driveway surrounded by a group of males discussing why the carby is stuffed and the results of last night's footy (a primitive gladiator-like spectator sport enjoyed by most bogans).
The female of the species, while smaller in stature, is far more loud and aggressive than the male. While the males tend to be very friendly and congregate with other males, the females spend most of their time in supermarkets and shopping malls, using a shrill high-pitched call to discipline their children and contact other females.
Males and females rarely interact socially except during breeding season, which is otherwise known as Friday night. During this time, females are allowed to enter the male-dominated area known as "the pub" and display their impressive coloured plumage to a prospective mate.
Herein lies an intersting phenomenon. Males will often fight over a particularly attractive female and she will mate with only one male, while some less attractive females have been known to have several partners simultaneously.

Ahhhh. The wonders of nature.

Also known as ferals or trailer trash, bogans are usually people of low socio-economic status, that live in cheap housing and drive old Holdens and Fords. They swear, are often unemployed and spend their dole on beer and rollies. Male bogans wear flannies, old jeans and are missing teeth. Female bogans usually have a tribe of snotty nosed, ungroomed kids being dragged along while she smokes a cigarette pushing a pram. Her 6 kids usually have 6 different fathers, none of whom pay child support as they are all unemployed no hopers. She often has a bad home dye job on her hair and sports oversized Dada clothes that belong to her bogan partner. She will frequently scream obscenities at her children in public places.

There has been a new phenomenom of bogan in the last 10 years: the middle class bogan. Usually the male is a tradie who makes ok money. Being bogan at heart, they attempt to not look bogan with a new car and a mortgage. The female middle class bogan gets her nails and hair done. The male bogan hasn't got a mullet, but usually a shaved head. But middle class bogans are still racist, stupid, and like their booze.
Look at that bogan screaming at her kids with a fag hanging out of her mouth.

Often seen sporting southern cross tattoos and collecting dole payments, bogans strive to live in plasterboard houses on a block where they have the freedom to park their Skyline and approximately six other disused car bodies/caravans. In their natural habitat, bogans consume VB* or, at weddings, XXXX Gold* and smoke "Winny Blues"*. Favoured attire includes board shorts, wife beaters and occasionally shoes, and very rarely a collared shirt.

*Winfield Blues are an Australian Brand of Cigarettes Favoured by tradesmen and the aforementioned bogan.
XXXX Gold and VB are Australian varieties of beer (very loosely speaking) and are rumoured to contain sweat and dirt.
Bogan 1: "Oi! Are youse goin' down the pub later?"
Bogan 2: " Yeah aye, might flex it down in the skyline a bit later. Got no petrol but. Gotta get down to centrelink aye. Chuck us me winny blues Mum."
Bogan 1: "Here y'are love. I'll do some snags for youse tea."

the poor cousin of ricers.

bogans usually tear around in their ancient and beat up commodores and falcons. the male of the species is usually a league/afl supporter, and sports a mullet or atrocious hair and flannel, while the female carrys her children around, communicating with offspring and other bogans in a high pitched screech, painful to the ears of humans. they all swear like troopers, smoke like chimneys, drink like fish, and have no regard whatsoever for other people. commonly on the dole.
