Poppy used to mourn dead chickens and pets.

#1
This just gets me.
A chicken website has a section for members to mourn their pets(fair one) but to call it the Poppy Field and use poppies- our national symbol of Remembrance-to add to their hangwringing does go beyond it abit in light of the time of year it is and what the Poppy means to thousands who have lost loved ones...not for fcukin pets!
Have already asked for it to be renamed but was accused of being disrespectfull and insensitive to grieving pet lovers!!!!!!!!
My beef is...leave the Popppy alone as it is already recognised for what it is..a fitting symbol for our fallen servicemen/women not fallen fcukin pets!!!!

We in Ireland have taken to wearing green poppies in commemoration of the tens of thousands of Irish men and women who fought -and died -with various Allied armies in the two world wars.
In this way we remember our own firstly, and then all the other men and women of all the other Allied Countries of ww1 and ww2.

So an irish life is worth more than any other allied life?

I'm Scots, do I get a Blue one?

Why the hell can people not leave things alone! It does not matter where you came from, the colour of your skin or what your religion is or was: the red poppy is the accepted symbol to remember them ALL.

Absent friends.

The whole point of the red poppy is it represents EVERYONE regardless of colour or creed.

What makes the Irish more equal in death than the others?

I see nothing wrong with the Irish honouring their own dead first, after all we do exactly the same. We honour ours then the Commonwealth then our allies.
The Kiwi and Ozzies remember their dead first as well.

As for poppies for dead chickens - well, you just couldn't make it up could you? Presumably not for those who breed and slaughter chickens in their thousands. Nutters the lot of them.

I have never seen a green Poppy down this neck of the woods

Red Poppies symbolise everyone

irregardless of rank, colour creed or nationality.


thats the way it is- and thats the way it should remain

Armistice Day, is for the rememberance of all who died.

At the time I thought it would cause a real problem, but I (and the unit I was in) took part in, and paraded on a German Rememberance Service, circa 1980.

As we marched around the corner to the cenotaph, in No2 Dress, with SLRs at the shoulder, I thought this is going to go down well in the press! Ahead of me guarding the cenotaph were 4 black shirted, coal scuttle wearing guards of honour, they turned out to be Feurwehr (Firebrigade).

What a piss up afterwards, U boat commanders, stuka pilots etc coming out of the woodwork all over the place, not a single Nazi though.

Ah, CATGI, there is an old saying 'there are two things you will never find in post-war Europe: A German who was a Nazi and a Frenchman who wasn't in the resistance!'

Hey guys, we're slipping off topic here, we're not talking about the Proper Poppy and Remembrance, but what some bunch of saddo Chicken Huggers have done.

A chicken is for dinner - not for life!
