A puppet has upset Egypt’s parliament.
Abla Fahita – a Muppet-esque doll that takes on the comedic character of a self-indulgent widow – launched a tirade against MPs during an episode of her show earlier this month.
In a satirical song, which aired on Egyptian private TV channel CBC, the puppet labeled MPs as being “impaired.”
