An Australian politician's son is a prime candidate to steal Christmas this year — and make us all laugh in the process.
Andrew Leigh is a member of Parliament for a riding near the nation's capital city of Canberra.
He and his family ran into a little trouble as they posed for a recent Christmas card. They had only been in front of the camera for 20 minutes when his three-year-old son Zachary got bored.
The result was this utterly hilarious photo.

"From his perspective, you can understand it: why stand still when you can play?" Leigh wrote in an email to The Huffington Post Canada on Tuesday.
"After he was unsuccessful, he decided to sit down and have a bit of a sulk about it."
But that wasn't all. After pouting for the camera, Zachary stood up and started walking towards a pond in the background — and that was enough to break up the photoshoot.
We've seen our share of awkward family photos at Christmastime. But this is one of the funniest.
