Melania Trump's wax figure has been unveiled by former Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Does this look like the First Lady? ...

It sure has about the same amount of personality as the real thing.

She’s hot

They could have used a pumpkin for Trump and no one would know the difference.

Very well read. Yep. Reads a little golden book to we shall over comb every night. :)

Pretty accurate 3D representation. Makes you wonder how it was so hard for Obama to commission a painter talented enough to accurately paint Michelle.

She looks like wax herself, so it’s perfect

It has as much emotion 😄

Too serious!

She married one of the most disgusting men in modern history - for money. I respect her now, because she knows that.

LEST WE FORGET | In commemoration of Anzac Day 2018, we are sharing stories of some of the brave Western Australian men and women who gave their lives in battle in World War I and II.

Flight Sergeant James Pat Steffan (top right) was born in Perth in June 1924 and lived with his parents in Mount Lawley. In October 1942, James discharged from the army and joined the Air Force. Sadly, his aircraft did not return from a raid over Courgent, France on 8 July 1944. James was just 20.

Thank You 🖒 BiG LoVe To Our ANZAC and Soldier's All around the World❤🕆❤ ..Can't wait to see Australia and New Zealand do the "Haka" at 7am👐

First of all I would like to say, I love Kings Park. I was beyond disappointed prior to dawn service to see the onsite kiosk slugging attendees with a 15% surcharge! This was disgraceful! Even taking into account penalty rates, your client volume was huge and as a business, could easily absorb it. Great ANZAC service overall- disappointing to see the cafe “cash grab”.

No ANZAC Biscuits at Gallipoli.

The origins of that great Australian institution the ANZAC biscuit are unknown and they were not in soldiers’ rations during the Great War, says academic Dr Matthew Bailey.

There was, however, a biscuit based on rolled oats, sugar, flour and butter that was popular at the time. Its magic ingredient was golden syrup which replaced eggs as the binding agent. This produced not only a tasty and nutritious biscuit but one that could last a long time.

Some families may have sent the treat to their loved ones abroad, but it was not until after the war that these biscuits gained the moniker “ANZAC” and began to be commercially made. Since that time Australian troops abroad have enjoyed ANZAC biscuits, either in ration packs or courtesy of parcels from home.

We should also remember that like pavlova and Russell Crowe, New Zealanders also make a claim for the ANZAC Biscuit!

LEST WE FORGET | In commemoration of the 2018 Anzac Day Dawn Service being held in Kings Park on Wednesday 25 April, we will be sharing stories of some of the brave Western Australian men and women who gave their lives in battle in World War I and II.

Of the 65 nurses who boarded the SS Vyner Brooke as Singapore fell in 1942, only 24 returned to Australia after the single biggest loss of Australian nurses during the two world wars – the Vyner Brooke Tragedy. One of these nurses was Sister Minnie Hodgson. Minnie trained at the Children’s Hospital (which became Princess Margaret Hospital) and later at King Edward Memorial Hospital. Minnie enlisted in 1941 and was Sister in the 13th Australian General Hospital in Singapore. Sister Minnie Hodgson was shot as a prisoner of war at Bangka Island on 16 February 1942. She was 33.
