    Tony Abbott Was Just Asking To Become A Meme When He Posted This Picture

    Apparently he missed the memo from David Cameron.

    When UK Prime Minister David Cameron posted this serious selfie on Twitter, he naturally spawned a hilarious meme.

    I've been speaking to @BarackObama about the situation in Ukraine. We are united in condemnation of Russia's actions.

    Yesterday, Australia's Prime Minister Tony Abbott followed in his footsteps.

    Just got an update on the search for #MH370 from JACC Chief Coordinator Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston (Ret'd)
