Aussies All Made The Same Joke After Julian Assange Was Booted From Ecuadorian Embassy
It's a dark road ahead for Julian Assange after the Wikileaks founder was dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London and arrested.
He was kicked out of his home of seven years after Ecuador's President declared the Australian made 'repeated violations to international conventions and daily-life protocols'.
Video footage of Assange being taken from the embassy quickly went viral and it didn't take long for Aussies to all make the same joke.
People kept screaming on social media: "What is the charge? Eating a meal? A SUCCULENT CHINESE MEAL?!"

Now, if you're unaware what the hell that means, it's a reference to an infamous YouTube clip about a bloke called Charles Dozsa.
The video of him getting arrested in Sydney went viral because of his bizarre rant, yelling 'this is democracy manifest' and telling the cops to 'stop touching my penis'.
According to a newspaper article he was known as 'the restaurant runner' after dining and dashing from a whopping 54 establishments.
It's easy to see how people made the comparisons between Assange's arrest and Dozsa's.
But on a more serious note, it's not looking good for the Wikileaks founder after he was found guilty of breaching his bail.
Justice Snow said: "His assertion that he has not had a fair hearing is laughable. And his behaviour is that of a narcissist who cannot get past his own self-interest."
Assange has been in the Ecuadorian embassy in London since 2012 after he sought asylum to escape Swedish and British authorities. He was wanted in the Nordic country over sexual assault allegations and although that case was closed in 2017, prosecutors say it could be reopened.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he would be treated like any other Aussie involved in a process like this.
He told the ABC: "When Australians travel overseas and they find themselves in difficulties with the law, well they face the judicial systems of those countries, it doesn't matter what particular crime it is they've allegedly committed.
"That's the way the system works."
America also hasn't ruled out trying to extradite him to its shores so he can answer to allegations of conspiracy with Chelsea Manning.
The US Federal Justice Department has accused Assange of playing a 'role in one of the largest compromises of classified information in the history of the United States'.
Wikileaks published hundreds of classified documents including a military video showing an Apache helicopter that killed a dozen people.
