Welcome to Mamamia Rogue’s Shocker, Hero and Whinger of the week.
Here’s how it works: each week we pick the biggest Shocker, Hero and Whinger from the last seven days. Shocker is whatever moment or person who left us with our mouths so wide open that we potentially swallowed a fly. Hero is whoever won the week by being 100 per cent awesome. And Whinger? Well that’s anyone who threw a tantrum that would make a four-year-old proud.
Without further ado, let’s get started.
Hero(es) of the Week of the week goes to…
Everyone at Perth’s Stirling Station when this happened.
The commuters travelling from Perth’s Stirling Station to the CBD at 8:50am on Wednesday morning are our Heroes of the Week.
Check them out as they MOVE A TRAIN to help a fellow commuter who got his leg stuck in the gap.
(The guy who fell through the gap reportedly just caught the next train into work. So, if the commuters who helped him are our Heroes of the Week, he must be eligible for a Mamamia Rogue Knighthood or something.)
Shocker of the Week goes to…
Senator Eric Abetz on The Project
So… a senior government minister appeared on national television and publicly – and incorrectly – defended a link between abortion and breast cancer this week. Our Publisher Mia Freedman was interviewing him.
You might have heard about it.
Mamamia are calling for Australia’s politicians to not attend the conference. If you agree sign Mamamia’s petition here.
For more on the conference read this post here.

Whinger of the Week goes to…
The mum who complained the Queen Elsa at a bookstore FREE school holiday event wasn’t to her liking.
The following picture was recently published on Imgur with the caption: “My friend’s kids waited in line for 2 hours @ Barnes and Noble to meet Elsa from Frozen… This is the result.”
Now, look, this is not a great Queen Elsa costume. There are no sleeves on her dress, the dress slit is lacking and Jezebel described what was atop her head as a “Founding Fathers wig”.
But, anonymous Imgur user, your friend’s kids were attending a FREE event at a bookstore during the school holidays.
Also, it has since been revealed that the Queen Elsa in this picture was a VOLUNTEER who doesn’t normally play Elsa, but had to fill in for the event.
You get what you get and you don’t get upset.
