Aussie Bogans at Their Best

Once upon a time there was a sheila who lived out in woop woop. Like a shag on a rock, she had no mate because she was a bit of a ratbag. As much as she was as fit as a Mallee bull, she had a face like a dropped pie. The problem was that she had heaps of neck oil and Maccas every day.

However, every Sunday arvo, despite the mozzies, she was super stoked about chucking a barbie in the park wearing her thongs and swimmers; with her esky chockers with tinnies and tucker. One day, a garbo, a fair dinkum bogan went by and asked, “Do you want a root in the dunny?” To which she chucked a wobbly and replied, “Oh you drongo! I’m cheesed off with you yobbos. You’ve got buckley’s chance.” And he explained, “I just wanted a pash, but no wukkin furries, love! Hoo roo!”



Once upon a time there was a woman who lived in the middle of nowhere. She was lonely, and due to her eccentric nature she had no friends. As much as she was strong and fit, she was quite ugly. The problem was that she drank loads of beer and ate McDonald’s every day.

However, every Sunday afternoon, despite the mosquitoes, she would get excited about having a barbeque in the park wearing her flip-flops and swimming costume; with her ice box full of beer and food. One day, a garbage collector, a real redneck went by and asked, “Do you want to have sex in the toilet?” To which she went berserk and replied, “Oh, you idiot! I’m fed up with you rednecks. You’ve got no chance. ” And he explained, “I just wanted a kiss, but no worries, love! See ya!”
