Meet Julie Bishop, Minister for Foreign Affairs and human emoji.

During an interview with Bishop on the Today show in Australia this week, host Karl Stefanovic brought up news that Governor-General Peter Cosgrove’s staff wanted a $2000 Thermomix for their kitchen.

He then asked Bishop if she knew what a Thermomix was. (It’s an expensive device that both heats and mixes food at the same time.)

“I’m going to answer in emoji,” she said, going on to make a weird face.

Well played. But which emoji was she impersonating?

Crime of the Day: Tarantula Thief Arrested for Trying to Sell Stolen Spiders in Georgia

Dwayne Melton keeps 18 tarantulas in a crawl space in his home where they are hibernating for the winter, but he recently discovered that 5 of them were missing.

Note to self: never visit Dwayne.

AniMart Pets, a local exotic pet store in Georgia, called to say that someone had just brought in the stolen spiders and sold them for $60.

The shop thought the creatures might be his, because they were the ones who sold him them in the first place.

A man named Brandon L. Davis was arrested for the crime, and Melton's spiders are now also locked up for protection.
