Ugg what?

Here’e another OEDILF limerick, for Ruchiccio, who displays a strange affinitity towards ugg boots:

Bevan

He needs both hands to count up to seven.
And I wish him to Hell, not to Heaven.
He’s called Bruce, he wears ugg,
He’s a lout, he’s a thug,
And his surname must surely be Bevan.

Apart from being an uncommon surname, in Queensland, Australia, a bevan denotes an unsophisticated male from the wrong social class or part of town. In other parts of the country he is known as a bogan. Ugg is thick sheepskin used for bevans’ boots. Other signs of “bevanism” include panel vans, flannel shirts and obnoxious hard-rock music.
