Outback Clapback / by Courtney Mehlhaff

The company I work for is global, so my team reads reports from many different countries.

Although the US has strict guidelines about how much personal information can be included in a professional document, other parts of the world regularly feature things such as photographs of the job candidate.

Not long ago, one of my coworkers was editing a report from Australia. On the cover page, in the spot where the person's picture was supposed to be, was a stock photo of a koala.

My coworker emailed the rest of us, amused and puzzled. Was it a joke that slipped through? Or was this simply the standard placeholder for all Aussies?

Another coworker dropped the mic when she replied: "Well, he certainly seems koala-fied."
