The High Court has just ruled Barnaby Joyce, Australia’s now former deputy prime minister was ineligible to stand for parliament at the 2016 election because he had New Zealand citizenship.

Joyce looks set to stand for election for his former seat of New England in a by-election likely to be held in December.

Twitter is already blowing up with comments about his ousting from parliament.

Here are 22 of the best as the drama unfolded.

Pass the popcorn

Joyce’s words come back to bite him

Political memes and gifs kicked in

For some it was revenge

Labor turned to Monty Python

Hard Chat comedian Tom Gleeson weighed in

Some believed Johnny Depp and Amber Heard would cheer

Depp and Heard broke Australian biosecurity laws when they smuggled their two Yorkshire terriers, Pistol and Boo into the country in 2015. They were slapped with a $1,000 fine, but Joyce then threatened to kill their dogs if they didn’t “bugger off back to the United States”. They’ve had a tense relationship since.

The “Put your… out” gesture was another source of mockery

Even Netflix joined in

Maybe he can join a band instead

Some are just miffed that they will have to vote again

Sorry Barnaby, the tribe has spoken
