1. Let's start off with the fact a Muslim woman was elected in a marginal seat.
Did you also notice that it was Ramadan during the election? You probably didn't know that Anne Aly was fasting while campaigning.
2. Ok what about ABC election analyst Antony Green and his colourful, diamond printed tie. Following the election, Green popped up day after day wearing the same tie because there was no result.
Also you may have noticed it's the same number-crunching tie he's worn in past elections.
There was a special surprise when Green projected a winner of the election last week: he ditched the tie and sported a formal suit and bowtie!
And over on the special ABC election site, "Has Antony Green Called The Election Yet?", a hilarious picture of Green was put up declaring "Yes!", with falling confetti and a lovely nod to his election tie.
3. Everyone has heard by now that Pauline Hanson is heading back to Canberra but did you know her most trusted adviser is James Ashby?
For those who didn't, James Ashby was at the centre of an incredible scandal that threatened to bring down the former Labor government.
4. Roy was Australia's youngest ever MP, but he lost his seat this election. The 26-year-old lost in a tight race thanks to One Nation giving its preferences to Labor, not to Roy.
5. And here's one for you, let's call it, "The Sunrise Curse". Both participants of Sunrise's weekly political panel, Derryn Hinch and Pauline Hanson, were elected to the senate.
6. Remember this guy? Yep, Dr Stephen Ruff, the guy with the greatest poster in Australian politics ran again! (He pulled in 10,000 votes in the Liberal-held seat of North Sydney.)
7. What about the story of the Coalition fighting with itself! The Nationals decided to run against their usual allies, the Liberal party, in Victoria. The Nats won easily.
And get this... Drum is a former state MP, he's pro-marriage equality and coached Fremantle in the AFL for three seasons from 1999 to 2001.
8. Say goodbye to the bellwether. Since 1972, the seat of Eden Monaro would always go to the party that wins government. Not anymore. Labor's Mike Kelly won the seat with the Liberals retaining government.
9. Unless you live in Tasmania you would have missed that Labor's Lisa Singh and Liberal Richard Colbeck staged a below the line revolution!
10. Australia met Isla Turnbull.
11. Come to think of it, the story of Grandpa Turnbull and the way the campaign used his family was fascinating. You had his son Alex, wife Yvonne, and Isla who were visiting from Singapore. Then daughter Daisy and her husband James Brown with their son Jack.
12. We also found out that the PM and the head of the department of prime minister and cabinet get shit done using iPad Pros.
13. We also learned that Malcolm and Lucy own matching blue puffer jackets!
Which made them look like clones from a sci-fi film set in the year 2150.
If you're thinking, "hey, that's a nice puffer jacket! where can I get one?"... it's called the Thermoball and is available for $333 here.
14. Did you also miss the fact Labor leader Bill Shorten went on a run on the Monday morning after the election wearing a North Queensland Cowboys rugby league jersey?
15. Australian Idol host James Mathison didn't win but he did take home more than $25,000 in public funding for the votes he scored. Not a bad pay day. BuzzFeed News understands MTV is considering making a documentary/series about Mathison's run.
16. Oh and here is the Labor's communications team who were congratulated by Bill Shorten, with special squad hoodies.
And this tweet from Sky News presenter Peter van Onselen has been printed on the back of their hoodies.
17. Everywhere you looked this election you couldn't miss Halal snack packs. Labor's Sam Dastyari dropped an epic troll of Pauline Hanson on election night which was *kisses tomato sauce covered fingers* BEAUTIFUL.
But did you know Halal snack packs have been around for YONKS. They've been known by many other names (ever heard of a "meat box"?) and in Adelaide the HSP is called an "AB". Apparently, AB stands for either "Afterbirth" or "Abortion".
