A quick bogan explanation.

I was previously asked to explain what a bogan was really more like. I mean, I'm terrible with diagrams and I don't want to take up too much space for this. So here's the long and short of it.

Eric Bana's portrayal of the character
Poida gained him accolades within the industry and effectively launched his professional acting career. This is one of very few examples of extreme boganism leading to success & wealth...

I try to enlighten as much as possible.
