In the Australian vernacular, a cub is a Cashed Up Bogan. Cubs are found in suburbs where they plainly don't belong, often having arrived as a result of an inheritance, lottery win or some other unexpected windfall.
Although cubs live in aesthetically pleasing suburban residences, the following traits still give them away:
* Cheap plastic chairs on the front porch.
* A massive ashtray - usually a baby formula tin or large coffee can, also on the front porch.
* Females can often be seen sunning themselves on the same front porch (usually in a cheap blue nylon dressing gown) on weekend mornings.
* Cigarette butts on the lawn of both their own and their neighbors.
* The high-pitched voice of the female of the species.
* Mating sounds on a Friday night (not to be confused with that of a Tasmanian Devil).
Note that because the bogan is now cashed-up, the car in the driveway is no longer an indicator, often having been replaced by an not-so-older series Ford or Holden.
"The cubs next door were loud last night, weren't they?"
"Get in the fuckin shower - I won't tell you again."
