News, but not the serious kind

Crawling into bed with Hitler?

What’s up, Blog Guy? You look disgusted.

I am. Regular readers of this blog know I have little patience with the idea of buying things that belonged to evil people, just to own a bit of history.

To me, a dumbass is a dumbass, whether we’re talking about Lee Harvey Oswald’s coffin or Bernard Madoff’s underwear, both of which have been auctioned in the past year.

So has another dumbass hit the auction circuit?

Yeah, the biggest. Adolf Hitler’s personalized bed linen, complete with swastikas and the crazy dictator’s initials, are expected to fetch around $5,000, maybe more, at a sale in Britain.

I mean, really? Hitler’s fricking sheets? You know what people do on sheets, and you still want Adolf Hitler’s bed linens? By comparison, bidding on Madoff’s underpants sounds almost normal.

So you think you’re a tuft guy, huh?

Blog Guy, I need your help with redecorating our dining room.

We want something really new. You know, something dinner guests will remember.

I hear you. Get yourself down to a store called The Seat of Power and ask to see their dictator-themed dining room ensemble. It’s called the Martinet Set.

Martinet? Is that like Raisinette?

Not really.  Martinets are authoritarians, and you can get a collection of dining room chairs representing famous strongmen. Hitler, Stalin, Saddam Hussein…

The worst wax job in the world?

Blog Guy, I need to make use of your legendary travel advice. I really enjoy visiting bad wax museums, but I fear I’ve exhausted the list.

Bad? I think that pretty much describes all wax museums.

Now, the new hit TV series, “Luger Town”

GERMANY-HITLER/BODYGUARD

Blog Guy, we’re a whole month into 2011 and you haven’t spotted any new signs of that onrushing Apocalypse. Does that mean we’re out of the woods?

Far from it. I’ve just seen a very serious sign, but it’s so disturbing I’m still in shock.
