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?

Republican state Rep. Vito Barbieri appeared to be schooled on female genitalia Monday during a committee meeting about a bill that would restrict how women get abortion-inducing drugs.

In the clip he seems to be bit confused about how vaginas work. Fortunately, There’s a Swedish children’s song that might help him out.

Dr. Julie Madsen was in the middle of her testimony discussing colonoscopies via pill camera, when Barbieri posed his unusual question.

“Can this same procedure then be done in a pregnancy? Swallowing a camera and helping the doctor determine what the situation is?” he asked.

Madsen was very polite in her response, noting that pills don’t typically end up in one’s v@gina.

In follow-up interviews, however, Berbieri clarifies that he was just being “rhetorical’ and that he probably could have made that more clear. You think?
