PICS: We've put these figures from Irish politics next to their lookalikes from The Muppet Show
It's time to meet The Muppets...
We'd like to make it clear that we aren't actually comparing our elected officials to muppets in the colloquial, insulting sense of the word.
All we're doing is pointing out that many of Ireland's political elites bear striking resemblances to Jim Henson's creations.
Don't believe us? Read on.
Gerald Nash and Dr. Bunsen Honeydew
Dr. Bunsen Honeydew clearly generated Louth TD Gerald Nash from his own DNA in a lab somewhere.
Aodhan O'Riordáin and Sam Eagle
Rectangular head, aquiline nose, unwavering commitment to justice and equality for all citizens... Sam Eagle and Aodhán O'Ríordain have a lot in common.
Mick Wallace and Animal
Both scraggly and unkempt, Mick Wallace and Animal might not share any DNA - but it's highly likely that they share a stylist.
Enda Kenny and Kermit The Frog
Okay, bear with us on this one. Narrow pointy faces, pursed lips, and both leaders of their respective people. Okay, this one might be somewhat tenuous.
Lucinda Creighton and Janice
You're not fooling us Lucinda, Janice pioneered that hairstyle all the way back in the seventies.
Willie O'Dea and Lew Zealand
Hey Willie, Lew Zealand called and he wants his moustache back.
Alex White and Beaker
To be fair, Beaker hasn't gone grey yet... but once he does, we're pretty sure he's going to look exactly like Alex White.
Michael Noonan and Statler
Identical hairstyle, same furrowed brown and stern expression... We're pretty sure that Statler's strong chin is the only thing that separates him from Ireland's Minister for Finance.
