This is another favorite park of ours Heywood, it's a little gem we stumbled accross in our travels about 5 hours from where we live. This was the location of my first drop in in a public park

bogans are what chavs aspire to be. I suspect Frankston is actually the origin point for the bogan species, the very navel form which boganism first sprung triumphant into the world fully equipped with a burning fag, a can of woodstock bourbon, a dole form, an extra kid for extra dole, and genuine uggies.

What a great looking park *<:-) Didnt realise it rained in Oz. I'm afraid I aint going there til they have cleaned up all the poisonous spiders either. Sharks are fine so long as you dont get wet. Spiders, fuck that, snekks too, nasty silent slimy poisernous bitey fuckers.

I would soooooo love a go in that bowl though.

Lets just say that when I moved to Frankston I felt comfortable going to the local shops barefoot, wearing ten year old trakkys, with a ciggy hanging out of my mouth and kids in tow to buy a $3 bottle of red wine........

Since then our status has been elevated to 'Mogun', being a bogun with money.....that means that you have jobs and cars

'Metros' resulted as a form of child rebellion towards bogun parents, thus the birth of the scooter infestation. Scooter bugs are deathly afraid of the boguns, which aids in keeping the balance of power in Frankston Skate park in check. If you're looking to keep a scooter infestation in check.....hire a bogun!!!

Scooters are by far the worst bug infestation that we have here, none of the creepy crawlies come close, not even the 'drop bear' :D

You insensitve farken brute. I had to leave me beloved pussy cat in Australia because they wanted to lock her up here for a month in quaranine for rabies checks - even though Autralia has never had a single case of rabies, my cat was immunised for it anyway in the hope of bringing her here, and she lived indoors her entire life.

You pommie bastards :evil:

To translate - trakky daks are cheap nylon trackpants from K-mart. The best of them are designed to automatically expose the anal crack of the bogan wearer (just like skinny jeans). Grunders are obviously underpants.

The whole set-up leaves a good spot for other bogans to extinguish their Winfield ciggies. Butts in the butt please ...

You cruel, carping, illiterate, pedantic, mad-cow infected self-satisfied pommie bastards (gh) how do yuz sleep at nignt with the constant threat of immigrant rabid mad cats pounding on your brains ...

Maybe I was referring to the women......I hear they have even put one in charge now. There goes the Aussie macho image with a welsh sheila running the country.

My aussie mate who sits opposite me at work has just started laughing and then stopped dead in his tracks - apparently he hasn't kept up with the news back at home and is shocked to hear it.

Sorry to hear about your pussy.

The social structure is this:

- Regular Aussies
- Bogans

Bogans make up about 50% of the urban population of Melbourne (and probably the rest of the country) in my experience. They drink 'piss' not beer (usually Carlton Draught), wear ugg boots with shorts, have rat tail hair do's, wear rock t-shirts and/or plaid shirts. They say 'fack' and 'cant' in every sentence and they smoke 'Holiday' cigarettes in (I shit you not) packs of 40 - they are like shoe boxes of fags. On the weekends a little bit of Meth or 'ice' is usually enjoyed with their 'piss' and fags.

The regular aussies are the same but don't partake in so much meth and they drink VB and not Carlton Draught.

:D I fitted in perfectly over there

Shrimp or Prawn?
There is often confusion regarding the difference between a shrimp and a prawn. Physically they look very similar but there is one sure way to tell them apart. In shrimps or carideans the side plate of the second segment of the abdomen overlaps the segments in front and behind. Prawns, most of which belong to the family Penaeidae of the group Dendrobranchiata, have all the abdominal side plates overlapping tile-like from the front. A more fundamental difference but one impossible to appreciate in a single specimen is that female prawns do not brood eggs but shed them into the currents where they develop independently. It would therefore make sense to call all member s of the Penaeidae "prawns" and members of the Caridean "shrimps" and this is what most Australians do. King prawns and banana prawns are names understood in this continent for penaeids sold frozen at the markets. The tiny shrimps bought in cans or froz en are imported carideans. Confusion arises when we hear Americans refer to prawns as "shrimp".

Shrimp on the barbie" is an often-quoted phrase that originated in a series of television advertisements by the Australian Tourism Commission starring Paul Hogan from 1984 through to 1990. The actual quote spoken by Hogan is "I'll slip an extra shrimp on the barbie for you", and the actual slogan of the ad was "Come and say G'day". It has since been used, along with some variations, to make reference to Australia in popular culture.

The advertisement pre-dated Hogan's popularity in the 1986 film Crocodile Dundee and thus were not initially seen as celebrity advertisements, as he was unknown in the United States, although the film increased the commercial's popularity somewhat.

The advertisements were developed by the Australian agency Mojo in conjunction with American agency N.W. Ayer.

The campaign was launched during the National Football Conference Championship Game in January 1984. Before the campaign, Australia was approximately number 78 on the “most desired” vacation destination list for Americans, but became number 7 three months after the launch, and soon became number 1 or 2 on American’s “dream vacation” list, remaining in that position for most of the next two decades.

"Barbie" is Australian slang for barbecue and the phrase "slip a shrimp on the barbie", for Americans, often evokes images of a fun social gathering under the sun. Australians, however, invariably use the word prawn rather than shrimp. Because the commercial was commissioned for broadcast in the United States, the change was made to limit audience confusion.

(farken aussies don't put shrimps on barbies ya carnt - they're like midget farken prawns ya goose - but they might turn up in a bit of asian tucker every now and then)
