Could this ute get any more oz?

By johnboy 3 December 2011 37

black ute with ciggy

As seen on Belconnen Way this week, this ute begs the question:

With a ciggy hanging out the window, a Ned Kelly quote, and a cricket reference including a southern cross, is there anything that could be done to make this ute more Oz?

(Apologies for the picture quality)

What’s Your opinion?

The true mark of a bogan ute are low profile tyres. Triple the score if it’s low profiles on a 4WD.

Like silicon tits on a bull.

This is a useful tool in tradie selection, though … any tradie with low profiles on his vehicle (or trailer) can safely be dismissed from consideration. Clearly missing the point, and likely to miss plenty of others.

Family sticker, ‘f*&k off, we’re full’ sticker, big spotties on the roof – there’s a few ways to make it more Orstrayan.

“f*** off *where full” is the traditional spelling of said sticker…

Instead of glassing people IRL?

Fairly sure it lives in Hawker, ackshully (and not the flats).

“I voted for a dragway” sticker is missing

“I shoot and I vote” sticker is missing

How come you never see “I drink-drive and I vote” stickers? Hmmmm … marketing opportunity …

This fascination with Boganism among many Canberrans has always interested me. Is it our insecurity? Is it fear of our own inner bogan? (much like the old cliche about homophobes)

Since we’re generalising about a stereotype based on a photo of a car; in my experience;

– Bogan man’s vehicle is a public extension of himself. No different to the Public Service wankers who spend much more money on not-very-good cars with a ‘prestige’ badge, or middle class suits who think that buying a Harley makes them an outlaw on weekends

– If civilization as we know it breaks down, and the NRMA doesn’t come when your Subaru breaks down outside that nifty little café in Kingston, Bogan man is much more likely to be able to help than the average Canberran, many of whom are unable to change a tyre

– Bogan man is generally ‘blue collar’. He may not be able to contribute to the discourse in a 2 hour meeting about the wording of the mission statement for the acronym du jour, but he is generally willing to call bullshit when he hears it

-If you get stuck in ‘rural and regional’ Australia, Bogan man is more likely to stop and help. Hipsters are likely to speed past, desperate to get to the airport and back to ‘civilization’ (I have experience of this)

-Bogan man may indeed spend Friday night with his mates at the Kambah Tavern – which is probably a better way to spend your time than anonymously throwing stones at individuals on an internet forum

Well said, justin. I don’t necessarily agree with it all, but good points.

couldn’t happen. A hipster wouldn’t be seen dead outside a capital city.

Where’s this cricket reference?

I suspect in this instance it’s unintended, but when the Australian Test team has a win they’re winning song goes like this…

Under the Southern Cross I stand
A sprig of wattle in my hand,
A native of my native land,
Australia you f@#king beauty!

Looks like it will be getting sung at the Gabba a bit later today. 😉

You see some amazing utes around Qbn (visitors, I think), the current craze seems to be to do them up like minature Mack trucks. Conargo Pub (wherever the hell it is) seems to have got its stickers on a shedload of utes too. And now utes have gone over to those shiny useless Suit Utes, a lot of young aspirant ute kids have gone for those weird little nissan ones, but it’s not the same. For proper ute cred, it seems that you have to get a pre-noughties holden or ford ute, or at a pinch, a brumby.

I’m sure the “Under the Crux we stand” rally call includes the citizens of the few dozen or so pacific islands that can also see the constellation…

All of the above – and then switch out the Holden badge for a Chevy badge to finish off the whole ‘I’m Aussie as, but my dream is to live in Alabama’ look.
