After a heated exchange in Question Period Wednesday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper had a Seinfeld-inspired Twitter tip for Opposition Leader Thomas Mulcair.

Harper offered Mulcair a Christmas wish and wrote "Serenity now!" - a phrase coined in an infamous Seinfeld episode, and included a link to a short YouTube clip of the episode.

In the episode, Frank Constanza misunderstood the directions from a cassette tape on how to relax, which resulted in him shouting "Serenity now!" whenever he was stressed.

Harper is reportedly a big fan of Seinfeld, and is said to reference it often.

The Prime Minister continued his joke with a follow-up tweet, in which he tags a Mulcair spoof account, @AngryTomMulcair, which pokes fun at the NDP leader's bouts of anger.

Wednesday's Question Period became particularly tense when the hotly-debated F-35 fighter jet decision was raised, and when Mulcair accused Harper of selling Canada out to China over the recently-approved Nexen-CNOOC foreign ownership deal.

The parliamentary exchanges prompted House Speaker Andrew Scheer to call for more calm in the House of Commons.

Harper's tweets have drawn out much reaction from across the spectrum on social media. After he recently tweeted at Justin Bieber, joking about his imfamous overalls outfit choice for their his Diamond Jubilee medal reception, Canadians have been taking note of the Prime Minister's newly-adopted humour on social media.
