    yes if you care calling someone it do you

    but not if your talking about muppets

    i dont its just another saying ! we say it along with words like numpty!

    doesn't bother me.

    If you're calling someone a muppet, you're not trying to be nice, So yes it is offensive.

    yes do you


    Depends how you use it but I don't think so.

    yes i suppose it depends on how you are saying it but generally we use it sometimes when normally i make a blunder but we dont say it in a nasty way!

    It is one of the least offensive ways of describing someone who is a bit thick.

    +1 That is spot on!!!!

    I'd lump "muppet" with "noggin" and "silly billy" - I don't think it is offensive unless it is intended that way.

    Thanks for the replies. Expired this now and repped.

    Its not offensive, I say it quite often. A word is only offensive if used in the correct manner.
