The term "muppets" has been released as never before in Australian culture.
After Prime Minister Scott Morrison declared that the curtains had reached The Muppet Show last week after the leadership spill, he has appeared on the news again and again.
And it reached another strange level when Labor MP Julian Hill arrived in Canberra for the new week of rest.
On Monday, Hill appeared before reporters outside parliament when reciting lyrics from the main song of The Muppet Show, with some minor changes.
"Why do we always come here? I really do not know," the MP said for the first time at Bruce's post in Melbourne.
"It's kind of like having to watch his show."
The dispute lasted barely a minute, before he left immediately to go through security in parliament, without asking questions and stunned all attendees.
