I was surprised by something my (80 year old) mother said last weekend. She said she was followed by a bogon and I assumed she was talking about a moth. Not so. She said the bogon asked her for money and followed her down Bunda street.
I tried to explain that the term is bogan and she nodded and said ‘bogon’.
I asked her what she thought a bogan was and she said they’re people who are born in the lower class, swear in the street and rarely shower. I asked her why she thinks bogans rarely shower and she said that Banjo Patterson talks about a Bogan Shower (which means standing in the dusty rain) in one of his poems.
After reading a lot of RA posts where bogans are mentioned I’d be interested to find out what the RA definition of bogan is?
