I really did try to find a justification for this post other than my own amusement, but to be honest, I came up with nothing but lolz. I've previously stated my love for gratuitous pics of celebs and koalas, so I just knew that when Oprah touched down in Australia there was going to be some magic. But I'm left a little cold at the pic above. So to make up for my disappointment, I've compiled a little compilation* of gratuitous koala goodness for your my amusement, accompanied by the theme song of classic Australian chocolate treat, Caramello Koala.
First up we have Lady Gaga and a koala at Taronga Zoo (which I presume is generally where every celeb who drops into Sydney goes to take koala pics. I used to work for a concert promoter and we threw concerts there. Pretty cool).
Next, for all you make-up madamoiselles, it's none other than Francois Nars and a koala.
Joey Fatone and a koala. LOLZ. Joey Fatone. Can you believe he's an N'SYNC-er?
The Pope and a koala.
Samantha Ronson and a koala.
Nicky Hilton and a koala.
Me, my sister and a koala. I like how I'm mimicking the koala's pose.
Right. Glad I got that out of my system.
