Photoshopped poppies all the rage this year thanks to David Cameron

Since the news broke that somebody in the Downing Street press office photoshopped a poppy onto an image of David Cameron apps have been popping up all over the internet in order to enable users to shop a poppy onto their own images. It’s a move which makes perfect sense financially for app users as it enables them to disseminate the impression that they’re actually wearing a poppy in support of the fallen, rather than the reality of them not being arsed to actually bother buying a real poppy.

“It’s quite a disappointing development really,” Paul Goldbloom, leader of the Britain’s Fist political party. “We rely on people buying our poppies in order to fund the party. These funds are vital to us because they pay for our piss ups down the pub and our bus fares to attend our rallies where hardly anybody turns up. If you ask me, photoshopping poppies is fraudulent and there ought to be a law against it because it’s misleading the public and proper hitting us in the pocket.”

Pranksters have taken to the internet in droves in order to photoshop poppies all over the place, in a spirited outbreak of good humour, which analysts suggest won’t have a detrimental effect on poppy sales in the real world.

“I think it’s quite comical really,” a poppy seller we encountered in town earlier on our way to Wetherspoons for a steak Tuesday lunch told us. “And I’m all for anything that raises awareness. I think we could do a roaring trade in badges with a little arrow on them bearing the message: ‘This is a genuine Royal British Legion poppy purchased from official sources and is definitely not photoshopped.’ It would certainly send a clear message out to that wanker David Cameron.”
