All the news I need to know I learn from Facebook…. This morning I came across a photo of Australia’s Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin holding koalas before the start of the G20 summit in Australia.
It turns out that the Australians specially trained koalas to give gentle and loving hugs to the world leaders (probably in hopes of promoting love and not war).
Apparently koalas spend 10 minutes a day learning to hug and get a day off every three days.
The biggest tip when holding a koala is to pretend you’re a tree…
Judging by this photo, Putin’s koala is thinking, “Get away from me! I’m an endangered species!”
