    DescriptionMeet the nouveau-bogue. The modern bogan. Today s bogan defies income, class, race, creed, gender, religion and logic. For better or worse, Australia is contending with a different beast from the Paul Hogan bogan. This is a bogan with money. A bogan with aspirations. A bogan with Ed Hardy t-shirts. The new bogan will not rest until it owns a plasma TV so large that Two and a Half Men gets rounded up to three. THINGS BOGANS LIKE is a landmark sociological publication and, far more importantly, essential reading for anyone who has ever bought a Buddhist-themed water feature, a four-litre energy drink or watched Today Tonight. This book is judge and jury of what it is to be a bogan in the twenty-first century. Brace your ego for some tough love.

    Author Information
    The six self-confessed snobs responsible for this maxtreme study are: E. Chas McSween: Adopted at the age of eight, he visited celebrity bogan Greg Evans and relocated to a household full of Ken Done prints and Jive Bunny CDs. Intravenus De Milo: Now living in Australia, smug in the satisfaction that he is pretty much the smartest person in the country. Hunter McKenzie-Smythe: Completed an Arts degree and skied the world until experiencing an epiphany and converting to Sunni Islam. Flash Johnson: Born from an egg on a Peruvian mountaintop in 1986, Flash set sail for Australia - the site of the world's most advanced bogan colony and now resides in Melbourne. Enron Hubbard: Since his arrest for civil unrest while defending battery hens, militant vegan Ron lives as a hermit, fearful of reprisals from angry bogans who value their low-cost, high-quantity egg and poultry goods. Michael Jayfox: From the lush, bogan habitat of Victoria's Latrobe Valley. Initially planning to sell the bogan maxtreme products that it didn't need, he became distracted by the study of bogan creature itself, and began writing of its ways.
