From the bestselling authors of THINGS BOGANS LIKE comes a not-quite scientific study of all things bogan. E. Chas McSween et al. have compiled this in-depth historical, sociological, geographic and cultural study that traces bogan culture back to society's very foundation, as well as identifying prototypical and stereotypical bogans through time. Brief discussion of the bogan of the 19th century, morphing to pre-war, then to the popularly held notion of the 'bogan' being 80s metal, flannel and Victoria Bitter. After exploring this stereotypical example they then track the leap to the 21st century bogan, clad in garish garb, holding their nationalism close to their chest, and slavishly following every celebrity trend in magazines. BOGANOMICS is an important book for all Australians as understanding is a bridge to unity. Read this book to broaden your knowledge ...or to laugh ...a lot.
About the Author
The six self-confessed snobs responsible for this maxtreme study are: Intravenus De Milo: Now living in Australia, smug in the satisfaction that he is pretty much the smartest person in the country. Melbourne and Sana a, Yemen based Hunter McKenzie-Smythe: Completed an Arts degree and skied the world until experiencing an epiphany and converted to Sunni Islam. Flash Johnson: Born from an egg on a Peruvian mountaintop in 1986, Flash set sail for Australia - the site of the world s most advanced bogan colony and now resides in Melbourne. Enron Hubbard: Since his arrest for civil unrest while defending battery hens, militant vegan Ron lives as a hermit, fearful of reprisals from angry bogans who value their low-cost, high-quantity egg and poultry goods. E. Chas McSween: Adopted at the age of eight, by visiting celebrity bogan Greg Evans and relocated to a household full of Ken Done prints and Jive Bunny CDs. Michael Jayfox: From the lush, bogan habitat of Victoria's Latrobe Valley. Initially planning to sell the bogan maxtreme products that it didn't need, he became distracted by the study of the bogan creature itself, and began writing of its ways.
