Flag craze flags

Been a lot of bogan flag talk lately, but the streets seem to have been reasonably clear of them. Has the bubble, like that of car red noses also burst? WAtching got a shot of what may be the last bastion of bogan vexilloligy in Clarkson. Michael also got a shot of some rare giant p plate flat boganry. But on the whole the moronic car flag thing seems a little less in evidence this year.

    Expect the Flagathon to commence in earnest on the weekend – and also the major chains such as Target, Kmart etc are selling everything flag related – including swimwear – now if a non toilet trained tot relieves oneself in them would that be grounds for desecrating the flag ?

    Aussie flag cuntkini?

    Spotted on Facebook, a few weeks ago: ads for ‘Australia Day contact lenses’. Sorta like those ones you can use to make green eyes look blue or whatever, except instead of eye shading, they’ve got a distorted Australian flag where the iris oughta be. Perfect for that ‘Cronulla zombie’ look.

    The blue car looks like one Iv’e spotted on South Tce recently. Parked at the front of Ada Rose.

    TLA: I think you’re wrong. Step out of your ivory dildo and you will see the streets awash with the things…

    As you know, Belmont Forum are giving them away and now BWS are giving them away with any Maison or Claytons Purchase.

    the flags per se don’t annoy me until it is three weeks AFTER the event.

    I purchased a carton of beer just prior to Australia day a few years back and it came with a full-size Australian flag cape.

    Yes, a cape.

    Which beer?

    I have a friend who works at wholesale distributor for surf brands in Perth. I mentioned the lack of flags this year, he said “just you wait”.

    Australian flag thongs, shoes, shirts, towels, shorts, etc etc have been flying off the shelves…

    Perhaps Tory’s right, and it’s time for a new one ?


  10. PuffinFresh says:

    Some of these flags will be left on until December, when they will be replaced by reindeer horns for Christmas.

    My take on the whole stupid affair:

    Via Pollbludger – be afraid – VERY afraid.

    A Coalition government would encourage people to participate in affirmation ceremonies on Australia Day and hold local celebrations similar to the United States’ holiday of Thanksgiving Day to make the occasion more meaningful.



  14. Fulvio Sammut says:

    Hey Frank, your family giving any flags away with the grog they sell?


  15. Frank Calabrese says:

    And this is the latest statement of bogan patriotism.

    And don’t you dare criticise the bogans on Facebook as this exchange illustrates.

    My 17 year old son bought his first car a few weeks ago. He’s often joined me in following TWOP – the sophistication, intelligence, wit etc that this implies a quite source of pride in his dad.
    Last night, in the carport organizing a wheelie bin, I noted 2 flags clipped to the car! I’m now hoping a sense of irony has developed.

    maybe a gun rack for behind the driver seat too


  19. hovean says:

    No longer having him trapped in my car as I ferried him around his social calender means discussion of these important issues has dropped off, but I suspect the flags are a sign of him coming out as a bogan, and shedding the metrosexualization he may have picked up in his early days in Carlisle.


  20. hovean says:

    It was an unused condom though. Metrobogan perhaps has evolved, a head scratching form of urban lush, quietly Ozzi in his two bob each way approach.
