With lockdowns in place across the eastern seaboard of the country, it's time to stop and take a look back at some of the funniest videos of the week from across Australia.
1. Dancing cop brightens COVID-19 cross border checks
A dancing Victorian Police officer brought joy to NSW-Victorian border residents with his traffic stopping dance moves last week.
Constable Harley Trickey stopped cars in Yarrawonga, Victoria, to check drivers were complying with COVID-19 border crossing restrictions.
"It was a tedious repetitive task, so I thought I'd just brighten up people's mornings by doing a bit of a dance," he said.
"It was a bit like an air traffic controller guiding in a plane and then a bit of a Shakira Hips Don't Lie chucked in at the end as well.
"It started out as a bit of fun and the more I did it, the more smiles sort of came through and the community were really engaging."
2. Cockatoos learn how to open bin lids
Cockatoos in Sydney were filmed opening red bin lids as they searched for tasty treats in the neighbourhood's rubbish.
Bin-opening birds have been clustered around south Sydney, Sutherland, and out towards Wollongong. But it has also been observed in Campbelltown, near Hornsby in north Sydney and even in Lorne, Victoria.
Dr John Martin, researcher with the Taronga Conservation Society, told Australian Community Media (ACM) his colleague, Richard Major, first observed the behaviour in the birds back in 2014.
On bin collection day, the birds were teaching themselves and each other to leverage the lid of the red bin up. Once open, they'd poke through the rubbish to find something edible.
"At this point we've only seen other Sulphur-crested cockatoo learning [to open the bins] and key factor to that is these birds are quite large so some of the corella that are in the landscape might not be big enough to do it," Dr Marin said.
"Equally it's about having the right equipment. So they've got this foot that's really great at gripping.
"The corellas have that but slightly smaller, and they've got this big beak to hold the bin [lid] and manipulate it and turn it over and the corella have a slightly different shaped beak."
3. Farting kangaroo refuses to get of the couch and go to bed
A kangaroo farted and refused to get off the couch to go to sleep in a hilarious moment captured on video and posted to social media.
The marsupial, known as Rufus the Couch Kangaroo, was filmed on the sofa by wildlife carer Kym Haywood at Pumpkin's Patch Kangaroo Sanctuary in Boston, South Australia last week.
Mrs Haywood said the four-year-old kangaroo hops from his enclosure to the house everyday at 5.30pm to sit on the couch and watch television - a habit he has kept since he was a joey.
Normally, Rufus leaves the couch to sleep outside at night but last week he fell asleep on the couch and refused to get up, which prompted Mrs Haywood to start filming.
In the video, Rufus was snuggled up on a blanket on the couch while Mrs Haywood tried to coax him outside by offering him an almond as a treat.
"Hey Rufy. Hey buddy, guess what? It's time to go to bed. Yeah, it's bedtime!' Mrs Haywood said in the clip.
But the reluctant kangaroo refused to get up and ignored Mrs Haywood before he let out an audible fart.
"I beg your pardon! Rufus, did you just do a little pop-off?" Mrs Haywood said, bursting out in laughter.
