Australians Are Making Jokes In Order To Beat The Brutal Heat Wave

Each year during what people living in the Northern Hemisphere think of as "winter," folks in Southern Hemisphere countries like Australia and New Zealand actually go through their summer, and the weather is appropriately warm and sunny.

This year, in fact, Australia is going through a terrible heat wave that's causing some parts of the country to experience temperatures as high as 38 degrees Celsius, which is over 100 degrees Fahrenheit!

While that's oppressively, disastrously hot, Australians mostly seem to be handling the weather with their characteristic good humor. If there's one good thing to come out of the escalating temperatures, it's got to be all the hilarious memes!

1. Everyone's had an ice cream cone melt too quickly on a warm summer day, but you know it's bad when the entire ice cream truck does the same!
2. Stepping on hot concrete is never a pleasant experience, but usually the sidewalks aren't baking so much that they actually melt the rubber soles on a pair of sandals!
3. Sure you might get burned to a crisp laying out in the sun, but how else are you supposed to enjoy a nice frozen, fruity beverage?!?
4. Just admit it Batman fans: The joker didn't make Two-face this way; it was too much time spent in the oppressive Australian sun!
