Bernard Tomic Happens.

With their studies over for the current session, a large swath of young people in Queensland celebrate "schoolies" with a week-long celebration. Among them: Bernard Tomic. The No. 51-ranked Aussie likes to have a good time (late-breaking understatement of the year?), and now he pals around with the likes of TV's reigning Big Brother winner, Tim Dormer.

Individuals called "toolies" Down Under are those types who are no longer of schooling age but persist in partying with the "school leavers," regardless (again, read here). Tomic and Dormer have been branded as such, though Tomic was quick to say otherwise when asked if such the slang term applied to him: "No, I'm Bernard Tomic."

Sounds about right. Tomic enjoys not just a good, alcohol-induced time in general, but also what the Spin will here term a "lappy." That's a lap dance, if we must, and evidence of its role in the life of one labeled "Australia's most troubled sports star" is now splashed across websites and Facebook.

Shirtless and sporting a camouflage hat? (Hey, camo is in this season.) That's so Tomic.

What do you think of the 21-year-old's latest escapades?
