    21 Of The Best Memes To Come Out Of Gladys Berejiklian's State Of Origin Photo

    God bless Australians and their sense of humour.

    Last night, a new meme was born and we have NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian to thank. You see, a couple hours before Wednesday's State Of Origin game kicked off, old mate Gladys shared this photo of herself on social media.

    Getting ready for Game 1. Go the @NSWBlues !

    The curious photo prompted a lot of questions, like why is Gladys watching the footy on such a tiny TV? Why is she holding an unopened can of coke? And why does the room she's in feel so...dystopian?

    But mostly, it generated a lot of A+ memes from Australians, so here are some of the best ones.

    It's 4pm...Time to draw the blinds and stand in the middle of a darkened room, while I patiently wait a further 4 hours for the game to start on a tiny TV mounted at head-height approx 10 metres away from me

    Gladys stood there until well past midnight, puzzled that the game had not started…

    No word yet on whether Gladys will post similar photos when other footy games kick off, but we'll keep you posted.
