Welcome back, Kotter

Well, thanks everyone for your prayers, thoughts and emails. Dad came home today and is doing really well, swears he is off the ciggies now (he'd better be - I'd hate to see him try and smoke after I've chopped both his hands off!!) and has a bunch of follow up referrals to chase up, but should be 100% very soon.

Thank God I don't have to schlep all the way down to the hospital anymore, if I see one more pregnant teenager smoking on the sidewalk, I might think I've moved to Inala.

Actually, through thorough and exhaustive socio-economic studies, I have compiled a detailed list to help people identify whether or not they may be... a bogan. (For international readers, a bogan is the Australian equivalent of a redneck, a yobbo, a chav, white-trash etc., etc.)

Are you ready? It's quite comprehensive, so go grab a cuppa or something. Ready? Okay.

You are a bogan if...

... you live in Tweed Heads.

The End.



  1. Glad your dad is much improved. I hope you don't have to chop his hands off. That sounds messy. Just lay some plastic down underneath his chair first if it comes to that.

  2. Yep, that drives me nuts too seeing pregnant teenagers smoking. Glad your dad is on the mend.

  3. Glad to hear your dad is home and doing well. Hope he manages to keep off the fags....

  4. Super pleased to hear the good news.

    You still crack me up regularly, thank you! :)


  5. Well, I am assuming that's the equivalent of saying Alabama. ;-)
