With Leo Varadkar currently enjoying one of the main perks of being Taoiseach (i.e. a trip to the States every March for Paddy's Day), he's currently shaking hands and kissing babies as he embarks on a mission to tell anyone who'll listen how great Ireland really is, to be sure.
One of the people he met yesterday at the SXSW festival in Texas was none other than former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger, and of course he couldn't resist making the most obvious joke worthy of any dad when he tweeted the evidence.
Oh Leo. Leo, Leo, Leo.

In fairness, people had some amusing responses to their meeting:
"I need your clothes, your boots and your novelty socks"
