Australia's prime minister,Malcolm Turnbull, just came up with a new campaign premise that 'Veep' fans will be a little too familiar with. He talks about keeping continuity... but also changing, something that Julia Louise-Dreyfus's character on 'Veep' also promised. 

You can see him explain it right here:



Actors and creators involved on the show, 'Veep', commented on how surprised they were that this turned into a real political talking point.  Maybe they were too good at parodying politics?

This is, of course, a reference to Ryan Reynold's poorly received first try at Deadpool in 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'.

Adelaide local, Steven Wilshire is a gosh darn Australian hero. This dude set up a personal sprinkler system for a lil koala that quite frankly, undeniably, was having a tough go of it with the heat. Bro move.

Crikey!

Bindi Irwin, daughter of late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, has won season 21 of Dancing With The Stars.

The 17-year-old Australian had consistently wowed judges this season with her top-notch performances and tearful tributes to her father.

Bindi beat finalist Nick Carter to take the trophy.

"Honestly, Bindi deserved it," the former Backstreet Boy insisted after the ceremony. "Bindi deserved it! She kicked butt."

And just look at this lift! It's clear that the best contestant won.

Well, that win was short-lived.

A woman identified only as "Chantelle" by an Australian radio station made one very costly mistake after winning $825 on a 100-to-1 horse race bet.

She took a selfie with her ticket and posted it to Facebook. DOH!

To her dismay, someone saw the barcode of the winning ticket in her photo and used it to claim her winnings.

"To the low life who is obviously my friend on Facebook and used my photo to claim our winnings. You're a massive d*ck. You ruined my day," she wrote on Facebook.

She told the radio station that police were able to track where the money was claimed, so she might get some sweet redemption.

But you kind of have to give it to the person who claimed the cash.

That was genius.
