the poppy answer is blowing in the wind
The Toronto Star - Off our jackets the poppies blow - November 9, 2006
I hate bad design.
The poppy is a very bad design.
Oh for God's sake.
Make the cheapo poppy for the cheapo people, and make an expensive one for people who don't want it to fall off. In fact, I'll quite happily buy an expensive permanent one AND give you my credit card so you can automatically charge it $5 or whatever every November. I don't actually need to get a new one every year. Two weeks of people attempting to stick millions of poppies onto their jackets, and then... millions of poppies in the trash. Oh that's a good system.
