Wog
The correct meaning of the word Wog in Australian culture defines people of Southern European decent. During the 1950s and 1960s many Wogs migrated from Southern Europe to Australia, predominantly to Melbourne and Sydney where the use of the word Wog was considered highly offensive. Over time, the use of the word Wog has become a term of endearment and other ethnic groups have adopted the term.

Southern European (true Wogs): Italian, Greek Maltese etc

The following ethnic groups today claim to be Wogs, but in reality can only claim the use by association:

Eastern Europeans: Croatians, Serbians, Bosnian, Polish etc
Northern Europeans: Germans, UK etc
Arabs: Lebanese, Turks etc

The use of the word Wog throughout other parts of the world varies from place to place.

5. No daughter of mine will have anything to do with a Wog.

WOG, "Working On Government" wages, derived from the British acronym stenciled on shirts of laborers assigned to government projects. These laborers were often migrants, and as such the term has now become synonymous with the newly emigrated. Unfortunately, these migrants are frequently under attack for "stealing Aussie jobs", which is highly ironic given that the only "true" Aussies are the indigenous population, Aboriginals.
"That WOG, who's being paid $5 an hour to wash dishes for 12 hours straight and be treated like shit, is stealing Aussie jobs!"

In Australia, one of the definitions of the term 'wog' is what other australians call europeans and now lebonese.
It used to be a racist word a while ago, created for the italians, greeks and maltese when they all came rushing in during the late 60's and most of the 70's.

Now, it's used as a replacement for the word european (the english and french are not considered wog though), it's socialy acceptable these days; can depend how you say it (examples below).
example one; racist.

person: oh my gosh shes such a greasy wog! she needs to go back to her own country. wogs these days.

example two; non racist

person1: hey, are you wog?

wog: ahah yeah *continues scoffing pasta down*

person2: ahah your so wog, love it.

Wog
US military term; short for pollywog (tadpole), or a rookie.

Refering to US Navy enlistee or officer who has never been aboardship as it has crossed the equator. A ceremony (akin to a hazing) takes place where the captain of the ship relinquishes command to "King Poseidan" (Neptune) and the wogs undergo ritualistic torment (usually garbage and food dumped on them) and emerge on the otherside of the equator as Shellbacks... and now seasoned Navy men.
I was a wog for the first six months of my tour until we sailed of Perth and I gained my shellback.
