Because this is how the internet deals with... everything. A less-than-restrained response to Australia announcing they may have found some debris from the missing Malaysia Airlines plane.

1. Did Australia's Maritime and Safety Authority general manager John Young wake up today and think, "I'm going to become a meme"? Possibly.

The good news is, Tony Abbott says Australia may have spotted two pieces of the plane. The bad news is, Tony Abbott says a lot of things.

"Australia may have spotted some debris" is not what you'd call a history-making bid for greatness. Their PM seems to think otherwise.
