Welcome to Boganville.

"The term bogan is Australian and New Zealand slang, usually pejorative or self-deprecating, for a person with an unsophisticated background, or whose speech, clothing, attitude and behaviour exemplify a lack of manners and education." - Bogan.

The term became widely known in the late 1980s when the teenage character Kylie Mole (played by Mary-Anne Fahey) in sketch comedy television series The Comedy Company frequently used the term to disparage anyone she disliked.
