Hitler

  1. Because People Are Terrible, Here is a Nazi-Themed Cafe in Indonesia

    Because, um... because people suck, I guess?

    Because people will do anything for money, one Henry Mulyana has opened a Nazi-themed cafe in the Indonesian city of Bandung. An entire wall is decorated with swastikas and Hitler memorabilia, and the staff are asked to wear SS uniforms (Yep, those pictures at the top are the inspiration and the modern cafe, waitstaff out front in the latter). Which means someone thought it was a good idea to open this place, other people actually took jobs in which they dress like Nazis on a daily basis, and enough people frequent such an establishment as to keep it open for two years and counting. And here I was getting all optimistic and idealistic about the human race.

  2. We’re Very Sorry If You Look Like Hitler, But That Might Be Able to Land You an Acting Job

    The mini-series is also casting for Churchill and Roosevelt, but their facial hair isn't a weird hipster trend right now.

    Calling all boys from Brazil: Get ready to see your name up in lights, because a new mini-series about World War II has issued a casting call for the part your were born to play. That's right -- the makers of a six-hour docudrama are casting (non-union, they are sure to mention) actors for the parts of Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt, and Adolf Hitler. Because you just can't stage WWII without a serviceable Hitler. Everyone knows that.

  3. Is This Hitler Reacts To The Comics Alliance Closure As Funny To You As It Is To Us? [VIDEO]

    Insidery

    We admit, part of the reason we find this Hitler Learns video so funny is because it touches on comic book journalism, something we're actually a part of. While The Mary Sue may not be solely about comics, we're fans of many sites that are, so we were bummed to hear AOL shuttered Comics Alliance yesterday and left a gaping hole in great comic book coverage. In response, Zack Smith of Newsarama and MTV Geek put together this video. Hopefully you will appreciate it as much as we did.

  4. Ignore Hitler Tumblr Puts Elaborate Drawings of Hitler in Every Draw Something Round

    Draw Something player Michael took the game to a whole other level by creating the Ignore Hitler Tumblr, a site that features very elaborate pictures of Adolf Hitler in Draw Something, even if the word for that round has nothing to do with Hitler. When asked why he includes Hitler in his Draw Something drawings, he simply replied, "He was the king of dicks. I'm not trying to make any political point by doing it, but I think anything that reduces a genocidal prick to an acceptable figure of mockery is a good thing." We think it's a good thing too, as the Tumblr is pretty amusing. Check out a handful of choice Draw Something drawings that feature Hitler for no reason after the break.

  5. Hitler Goes Super Saiyan

    Some pretty crazy stuff happens in manga, and you may already have your own stories and examples, but let me show you what I think might be the definitive limit: Super Saiyan Hitler, basically. I know, I know, it sounds completely ridiculous, but apparently it makes sense in context, which ultimately just makes things weirder.

    This page is featured in the The Legend of Koizumi, where this kind of thing isn't entirely uncommon. The premise of the whole thing is that former Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi fights various world-leaders from the present day and the past in order to save the world. How does he fight them? Mahjong. Naturally. So yeah, not only does this crazy blonde Hitler exist in the series (I don't think he's literally going Super Saiyan), but he's about to sit down to a game of high-stakes Mahjong. Why? Who knows, not that you could possibly wrap your head around an answer anyways.

  6. The Consequences of Safe Driving

    In Which We Make A Terrible Pun

    For most of my teenage years there was only one person in my family with a driver's license, and he worked a full time job with a forty minute commute, at least. Which is to say that I got very, very accustomed to making my way around a suburban town with mediocre mass transit sans car. This involved a walking (which I hate), biking (which I hate somewhat less), bumming rides from friends who would go ten minutes out of their way to get me home, and, on occasion, calling cabs. So, as a long time pedestrian and bike rider, I urge you to take this PSA, made by the comedy group The UCB Midnight Show, very, very seriously. It could save a Reich. I mean life. Why did I say Reich? That was weird. (via Wired.)

  7. Wait, WHAT?!: There Was a Secret Plot to Turn Hitler into a Lady

    Misleading Headline of the Day

    So this might be the weirdest news I've heard today: Back during WWII, one group of British spies were hoping that pumping Hitler with with enough estrogen would calm him down enough to stop the whole mass genocide/take over the world kick he was on. There were undoubtedly plenty of "kill Hitler" plots circling around at the time (not to mention The Doctor's efforts), but the logic behind this one is what catches our eye. Follow the jump to learn more about it.

  8. Once Upon A Time Gandhi Wrote A Letter To Hitler

    What do an iconic peace-loving protester and easily the most hated man in all of human history have to do with each other? The answer is simple: a plea that was never heard. Mahatma Gandhi wrote to Adolf Hitler on July 23, 1939 to ask him to keep World War II from happening. At the time, Hitler was already progressing through Europe, having invaded Czechoslovakia earlier that spring. The letter never reached Hitler, (for unknown reasons) and it is hard to image that it would have had much impact if it did. Gandhi wrote two letters to Hitler, which are on display at Mani Bhavan, where Gandhi lived in Mumbai from 1917-1934. These letters are a known, but still shocking, part of the history of WWII. Certainly, they make you wonder what could have been, and even spark speculation about what the world leaders of our time really think about the current state of the world.

  9. “I think we can unequivocally say we’re against Hitler.”

    Wise Words

    I think we can unequivocally say we're against Hitler. I think the worst thing you can do to that awful man is take the mickey out of him on Doctor Who. Don't worry, we're not going to save Hitler. -- Steven Moffat, who just wants to make sure we're all on the same page. Look, sometimes you just have to lay it out there. (via io9.)
