Extraordinary that it has taken until 10 October in the year of our lord 2018 - some seven years after it began - for there to be an article with this title on this wiki, but there you have it.


The Muppet Show is also a great party game you can play, should you find yourself stuck on an idiotic conference call. It's really rather easy. Just slip in a sly reference to The Muppet Show.

You don't have to actually call anyone Fozzie Bear, however tempting it may be. Simply suggesting (when a suitable context arises) “I think it's time to get things started”, or “will we be able to definitively eliminate the tail risk? I guess we'll never know” or, if it’s a call with fans of buzzwords, “it’s time to play the music”. They'll like that and may even unwittingly adopt it.

An extra prize if you can mention three.
