A friend and I are having a disagreement atm over this

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/entertainment/2...calypse-message

I think it's funny a bit of light hearted humour, my friend on the other hand is Embarrassed for Australia by it.

So funny or not?

neither funny nor embarrassing.

I would have thought she had more important and pressing matters to attend to, being Prime Minister and all though.

I think it's funny, shows she had a sense of humour.

Isn't funny, I don't think our Prime Minister should be participating in jokes like this.

It was recorded at a place in Syndey she does a lot of press conferences at. It would have only taken a few minutes and they probably did it after something else she had on

Good on her for stepping out of the mould for a few minutes.  Loved it.

Funny.  I saw it before and was surprised to see it was really her and not an impersonator.

I don't think it's funny, or not funny for that matter. Just a bit 'meh' about it

I like it. I never thought I'd see the PM talking about flesh-eating zombies, but there you go. Shows she's human and has a sense of humour/doesn't take herself too seriously. original.gif And she's pretty good at keeping a straight face, too!

maybe I should have put a " tongue.gif " after it ....

sometimes forget sarcasm doesn't always come across well.

Still don't think it is funny or not funny though.

I don't find it funny as such, but I can see the humour in it. I like the fact that she can take a light hearted dig at herself. I like the fact that we have a PM that will do this kind of thing instead of thinking they are too good to waste their time.

I agree.  Took a couple of minutes, not like anyone would remotely think she was serious.  No big deal, just a bit of fun.  Not as if her MO is to be a funny PM, so showing her lighter side every 12 months or so is not a bad thing.

The US has a president that sings in press conferences, we have a PM that talks about zombies.

To me it's a meh as well. I am really quite over the end of the world crap though, that might be why I'm finding it meh

It's not laugh my head of funny but it brought a smile to my face.

I have always had a good opinion of Julia the person. Not so much the pollie.

Imagine how that could be edited!

And it could scare the pants of gullible people lol.

Overall I think it's harmless fun.

I think it's nice to see a lighter side of the PM - makes them more human like.
