Bali's Had Enough Of Our Grotty Bogan Behaviour, Can Ya Blame Them?

This is why we can't have nice things.

Australians are known for being friendly, easy-going and having a ‘laid-back’ nature. However, we’re also known for being absolute pests while on holidays – particularly when we travel en masse to Bali.

If you’ve ever been to Bali, you’d be familiar with the stereotype: slurring ocker accent, sunburnt skin and more empty bottles of Bintang than a backyard BBQ.

Sadly, our bogan vacays are getting so rowdy Bali is cracking down on the bad behaviour by sending troublemaking Aussies down under.

According to, Bali-bound bogans making local headlines for drug trafficking and drunken escapades have prompted Balinese governor I Wayan Koster to send the “disrespectful tourists” back home.

“In the near future we will make a regulation to take firm action against tourists that commit ethical violations or offend the norm in Bali. We will send them back home,” Koster said. “This is not only for Australian tourists. This is for all tourists, wherever they come from.”

It’s no surprise that Bali has had enough of our raucous ways. Just last month, Australian tradie Nicholas Carr was arrested after he went on a drunken rampage in Kuta. 

According to 7 News, Carr fly-kicked a man from his motorbike, jumped onto the roof of a moving car and invaded the home of a Seminyak he also allegedly assaulted. Carr said he “can’t really remember” the incident, after drinking at least 20 vodkas.

The same week Carr was arrested, Sydney man Ryan Scott Williams was sentenced to five years in jail for making his own cocaine while on the holiday island. A month earlier, Australian carpenter Matthew Richards Woods was accused of snatching the bag of a Canadian tourist while in Canggu. 

While we’re skating on thin ice with our dodgy Bali behaviour, about 1.2 million Australians travel to the country every year. We pump the local economy with plenty of dollars, but at what cost?

The warnings from Bali’s governor come as a reminder that all Aussies should be friendly, easy-going, laid-back but most importantly respectful when travelling to other countries.

This Aussie Mansion Gives The AHS Murder House A Run For Its Money

This is the stuff of nightmares.

Anyone who has been house hunting knows that the photos can often be misleading, but the  listing for this Aussie mansion is leaving nothing to the imagination – in fact, the photos are so terrifying they’ll haunt your dreams.

WTF? Credit: Giphy

From the outset, 10 Melory Crescent looks like a charming mansion built in the 1800s. The first ten property photos give off the same kitschy yet full-of-potential feel, but when you hit number 11, everything starts to take a scary turn.

The house appears to have a strange, derelict basement featuring someone’s collection of haunted dolls and Halloween memorabilia. It’s so unexpected and frightening, it’s giving the AHS murder house a run for it’s money.

Let’s be honest – It: Chapter 2 could’ve been shot here!

The mansion’s murderous basement isn’t only bizarre feature you’ll find in the property photos. Amongst the lacy curtains and tacky wallpaper you’ll find a Crusty Demons cushion, an Alice Cooper poster, a framed Manchester United jersey and a gold vintage Chevy parked out back.

The property description includes a brief history of the mansion, emphasises that “everything needs work” then right at the end, an agent’s note reads: “Brave people only, leave the kids at home or keep them supervised. Watch the steps.”

If that’s not a selling point, I don’t know what is.

There’s no doubt that 10 Melory Crescent is what they call a ‘fixer-upper’, but if that means crossing paths with a possessed doll or an angry ghost from the 1800s, I’d rather stay renting for the rest of my days.

Tracy Morgan Paying A Bartender To Keep An Eye On His $2M Bugatti Is The Definition Of BDE

He's not taking any chances.

If you’ve saved up enough pocket money to treat yourself to a brand new Bugatti, you’re not going to take any chances leaving it parked outside a restaurant.

This is something comedian Tracy Morgan can personally attest to, having legitimately paid a bartender to watch his $2M Bugatti while he ate at Carmine’s restaurant in New York this week.

A source told Page Six that Morgan “paid one of the restaurant’s bartenders who just came off his shift to watch his Bugatti while he and a friend dined.”

While Morgan tucked into “Carmine’s signature chicken, veal parmigiana and fried calamari,” the bartender kept his eye on the luxury vehicle parked out front. 

If this isn’t the definition of BDE, I don’t know what is. Sorry, Pete Davidson.

It’s not surprising Morgan is going to great lengths to protect his property. In June, just hours after he purchased the sportscar, another driver travelling into a Honda CR-V smashed into it.

“He said he got it literally an hour ago and he paid $2 million for it,” a source said at the time. “He just bought it, dude, and it’s pretty scraped up.”

In fact, Tracy Morgan hasn’t had much luck with cars at all. In 2014, the comedian was involved in a six-vehicle crash in New Jersey while travelling in a Mercedes Sprinter minibus. The vehicle was heading north when it was struck from behind by a Walmart trailer, causing a chain reaction of subsequent collisions. 

Fans were devastated to hear that the crash had killed 62-year-old comedian James McNair, and left Morgan with severe injuries including a broken leg, nose, and several broken ribs. 

Morgan sued Walmart for negligence, resulting in the driver accepting a plea deal with no jail time. In a 2015 interview Morgan revealed he had no memory of the crash and said “I have my good days and my bad days, where I forget things.” The same year, the comedian made a surprise appearance at the Emmy Awards where he was greeted with a standing ovation.

After all of that, Tracy Morgan deserves to sit back, relax and let someone else watch his car for him.
