Basically an event for country folk to get drunk and hook up.

It was the blue dye reference that I was interested in specifically. Wikipedia mentions throwing dye on people, but gives no further reason why that may happen?

Actually they look like outriggers you use game fishing. Maybe he just drives the ute straight onto a boat.

Once again, this fear and hatred of the “other.” This person spends money on his/her ute. Other people spend money on their fixie and and a stream of lattes. The difference is?

It is quite legitimate to make aesthetic judgments and also to speculate, or even to draw amusing conclusions, as to the values behind someone’s taste in cars/bikes/clothes/other accoutrements.

For example, I look at your comments, and your use of inverted commas around other, and I think that someone has studied at university, and thinks that at once using and problematising a term is like, totes Gillard.*

See? Generally harmless, side-slapping fun, and quite different from really pernicious things such as sexism and racism or saying everyone in public housing is scum, which deserve to be challenged.

*Totes Gillard is a shop for odd knitted things.

B&S balls are famous for such cultural highlights as having a bunch of guys being too lazy to find the toilets so peeing in an area behind the utes, then many hours later when they are too drunk to remember why there is a patch of mud behind the utes, running and diving in to it to see how far they can slide.

Personally, I think the vehicle looks ridiculous.

Then again, I drive a 97 magna so each to their own….

All the best irony is unintentional.

I was using “ironic” in the hipster sense of the word.

The difference is, one is an ostentatious, mobile, noisy, and rather vulgar display of bad taste, the other is a more quiet and refined display of bad taste.

Do I win $5.00?

I’ll give you the quiet, but, depending on your prejudices, “ostentatious, mobile, and rather vulgar” could be applied to both. So, sorry, no $5.00.

Your typical latte sipper doesn’t spend their weekends spitting blue dye on each other at B&S balls in between bouts of punching on with anyone that doesn’t have a conargo pub sticker on their ute nor have it covered in enough useless communications equipment that it puts the ISS to shame.

Yes, the punching on is a bit much, but who cares about the dye splitting so long as it’s between consenting adults.

I still have my penis and my silver 4wd of justice with it’s throbbing, 4 cylinders of hot automotive, glory is remarkably stock standard to the point that I do not have to brag about it. It is plain to see that this is merely a visual distraction to what is obviously deep penile shame being felt by the driver.

It may be a deeply ironic statement about the inadequacies of other ute owners.

Back in Victoria we have a special name for the people who drive utes like this.

The technical term is “frigger” although it basically means “Wants to be a cowboy but is afraid of horses.”

Pardon my French.

This ^^^

As a former long-term resident of Kambah and a current Falcon ute owner, I call BS on any suggestion that this clown is a bogan. Bogans do not do that to utes. This is one of those displaced youths, probably from a larger country centre such as Yass, Cooma, Goulburn (but not Quangers due to its proximity to Canberra). These B&S wanker types are a lower life-form which accumulate along a ‘gradient’ between the larger country centres (wanna be farmers) and actual farmers (who need 4WDs).

This guy does not deserve a ute. It is shameful. Even for a Commodore.

Of course you are all assuming the radio and lights are actually wired up and usable.

That’s the difference. Our flannel wearing friend pictured is actually driving what I’d consider on the tame side, I’ve seen much worse in the slums around wagga.

well played, sir.
And to think: No-one’s commented on the 4 dinner-plate sized spotlights, skirt, rear-window decal, clear taillight covers and sleeper badging yet! (Paint job looks OK too)
