Loud drunken bogans whose nasal accents cut through the humid Phuket air like a chainsaw: "Jesus Chroist, Aaron just rack off, I've had a gutful." To the question "Are you Australian?" my stock response is to look confused, wave my hands and scream "No English! No English!" and then scurry away mumbling in a made-up languag More..
