We’ll be wearing a poppy and imagine you will be too, but is it necessary for the Cookie Monster to wear one? Maybe Cookie Monster wanted to, right?
It provoked a lively debate on Twitter. Interested in your thoughts too.
It’s going through his skin – way more dedicated than most.

I LOVE faux-intellectuals sneering at the act of paying respects to the dead, I just love it! It’s so fresh!

This is what happens when people appearing on telly this week without poppies are given the pitchfork treatment.

Here they are in action.
Great to see that an ageing Muppet who has been entertaining us for decades can still get onto primetime TV

We reckon John Simpson says it best.
Just bought my poppy. I'm proud to wear it but hate the idea it's some kind of patriotism test. It's just a good way of helping ex-soldiers.
