armistice day, consumerism 

Overheard two women the other day talking about Armistice Day poppies and going on about how one of them used to have a nice shiny metal one, and you get so many nice poppies these days, Marks & Spencer’s sells one with Swarovski crystals, not like another one she saw with cheaper crystals on it

@dreadpirateyarr this SNL skit still cracks me up, though I think "problematic" is probably the nicest way to describe it. Jamie Foxx struggling to keep a straight face is a big part of the appeal nbc.com/saturday-night-live/vi

@rhiannonrevolts I’m amazed I’ve still got eyeballs and they didn’t roll out of my head being stuck in a queue with this pair

"Where have all the flowers gone?
Long time passing.
Where have all the flowers gone?
Turned to crystals, every one."

@dreadpirateyarr *squints across time and space at this woman*

I think she may have lost the plot a bit. Like, what the fuck, who needs a crystal-encrusted Armistice Day poppy

I saw a union flag crystal poppy today. Certain types of people, in Liverpool at least, have been wearing poppies all year round for some years now. Clearly it's not about Remembrance any more.
