    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…
