IMO boganism permeates every level of society. Gerard Baden-clay may well be a bogan. I'm damn sure John Singleton is one...and possibly Rusty Crowe.
I call them professional australians along with Brian Brown and Jack Thompson.

The origin of the word is unclear, but it may have originated in Australia. (ya think?)

In honour of this momentous occasion, I would like to nominate someone who I believe could easily be crowned The Hugest Bogan in Australia.


My nominee is one David Allen Baker Baldwin, currently residing in jail in Queensland. What follows is a transcript of one of his hearings for attempted murder. Read right to the bottom.

***warning*** very bad language!

Not giving anything away, but I thought he summed things up pretty good.

Julia Gillard is the biggest bogan in the history of the universe. Seeing as she screwed our way of life royally, I shall hold a BBQ and a party when this disgustign blood sucking succubus creature finally dies in a hole.
