3. When asked to hand out emoji spirit animals to others, she gave prime minister Tony Abbott the running man. Is he running to his right?

4. And the man tipped to challenge Abbott for the top job got the iPhone. Is that because he loves working the phones?

5. Meanwhile, she thinks Russian President Vladimir Putin is embodied in the red-faced angry man.

10. Then there’s Australia’s biggest trading partner and Asian neighbour.

11. Australia’s most intense relationship at the moment is with Indonesia, which is set to execute two Australians for drug smuggling. The presence of “pensive face” is telling here.

12. Bishop’s position on marriage equality is “open hands”, which in this case could be interpreted as “jazz hands”.

Community Post: Jensen Ackles And Jared Padalecki’s Epic Bromance

1. You may recognize them from their roles as Sam and Dean Winchester on Supernatural.

2. These co-stars quickly went from being on-screen brothers to real life best friends.

3. Are you sure?

5. As the stars of a tv show, they keep each other from being too serious.

7. So much so that you might question if they’re actually reverting in age.

11. When the occasion calls for it, they aren’t afraid to hug it out.

12. Or anytime they feel like it really.

13. Seriously…they hug a lot.

14. Dressing alike occurs often enough that they have back-up plans.

15. But, those don’t always work out.

16. And again…

17. To the point that you can’t tell if they own the same shirt or just share it.

18. Prior to getting married to their wives, they lived together.

-Jensen: Nine months out of the year, we’re stuck with each other literally 24/7 a week…we’re constantly together. And even when we’re not actually working together….we always find ourselves choosing to hang out and be together.
-Jared: We even lived with each other!
-Jensen: We did.
-Jared: We were in each other’s weddings!
-Jensen: We were.
-Jared: And when we leave Canada for break we’re combining our families to do Christmas together in Texas this year!

19. Yes, not only were they in each other’s weddings, but they now have huge family Christmas celebrations.

22. And they can always count on one another to have their back.

23. No, really.

24. Just in case their bromance is still in question, let’s hear from them.

“When Jared and I met, we kind of instantly became friends. He’s five years younger than me, so it was cool. I knew what it felt like to be an older brother and he knew what it felt like to be a younger brother — we just kind of fell into a nice rhythm.”

25. Texas-sized support.

“It’s remarkable being two guys from Texas who would probably be going for the same roles. I feel no competition with him. I feel like he’s my biggest supporter and I know I’m his biggest supporter.” -Jared

26. BFFs

“We’re best friends, period. He’s my best friend for life. I don’t think that’s remarkable, but it’s definitely special.” -Jensen

27. Just like glue…

“Unfortunately for him, he’s stuck with me for life now.” -Jared

28. Bro love.

“He’s like a brother and I love him.” -Jensen

29. Verdict: The most amazing celebrity friendship we can’t get enough of.

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Others

“Nothing says ‘Bollywood’ more than a scarf and an ANCIENT EGYPTIAN EYE OF HORUS on your forehead now, does it?”

“Oh snap. This dude actually dressed up as a genuine Raghead.”

“Dear White Ladies,
Wearing a sari takes a little more skill than just wrapping a piece of material around yourself over the top of a t-shirt or a boob tube. Also, wearing random beads and dots on your head will not give you magic powers that help you dance ‘Bollywood style’ when you are drunk.”

“I had to literally pull this guy off his flying carpet as he swooshed past me. In case you can’t tell, his turban is actually a coiled up snake. Genius.”

“Look out, this bartender’s serving up a lethal new cocktail called ‘Racism’! Get it, he’s dressed as a different type of ‘Indian’! So subversive.”

“Well my brown skin is no match for this man’s turban, multiple dots and layered t-shirt combo.”

“Wow. Just wow.”
