True fact: the comedown from Australia’s mining boom is going to hit like a mofo, and no city in the nation is going to feel it harder than good ol’ Perth. Fortunately, thanks to our ~ agile economy ~ and the ~ Innovation Boom ~ the WA capital is willing and able to adapt.
Skeptical? Well, cop this, ya nervous nellies:
Yep. Aussie self-deprecation – the source of, and solution to, our nation’s economic woes.
For real though, this most perfect example of a job ad is actually totally legit. Perth pub Rosie O’Grady’s has been running their Bogan Bingo nights for a hot minute now, and apparently the event’s unavoidable success necessitates another bogan caller.
The Sydney Morning Herald pointed out BB’s site explains “One Bingo caller calls out the numbers and his budding Dj play songs from the 80’s and 90’s that rhyme with those numbers,” and they’re in dire need of another “shining beacon of bogan glory” with a “rockstar attitude” to fill those Size 12 Hard Yakka boots.
The job comes with some caveats, the ability to count to 90 chief among them. But, if you reckon you can manage a canter while donning thongs, you might just have a shot. Once again, this a real thing, and if you’re down you can chuck in an application rooooight heeeeyah before auditions take place on April 28.
