Do we need to get our ears cleaned out? Perhaps but if the adorable siblings from Co Cork on the Late Late Toy Show do in fact have a puppet now named Polly the Protestant thank to Ryan Tubridy, and not Polly the President, their appearance has given the nation a great laugh.

Dustin the Turkey might have competition as the nation’s favourite headline grabbing puppet as Irish Twitter ran with the first name option, Polly the Protestant, and hilarity ensued.

The Protestant vs Catholic debate that in Derry Girls spawned resurfaced and people tweeted their amusement and disbelief in equal measure.

We weren’t the only ones who had to rewind and listen again.

Naturally, the toaster conversation arose as people debated where Polly the Protestant kept her small kitchen appliances.

Some chalked Polly’s appearance down to border issues.

She’s even inspired a potential drag career.

And for the most part, she was just largely praised for giving us all a giggle.

The Toy Show amusement exceeded people’s expectations and they tweeted to say as much.

Well done to Ryan Tubridy and all the Late Late Toy Show team who went above and beyond when the nation needed it most.
