There are two things that have been Internet staples from the very begining, namely cats and neo-nazis. All over the world, cat lovers used their emerging Web skills to build virtual shrines to their domestic feline friends. And we laughed. At the same time, neo-nazis used the Internet to find other like-minded individuals and to disseminate their message of hate. These were inevitably inveterate losers who provided us with a glimpse into their otherwise pathetic lives. And we laughed.
But now there’s a Web page that unites the two, namely, catsthatlooklikehitler.com. On this site, owners of cats that resemble Hitler, send in photos. Their cats are voted on and discussed and the photos are displayed – the greater the resemblance to Hitler, the higher the ranking.
No. I’m not kidding.
The makers of the site go to great pains to let visitors know that they are not racist or hateful in any way:
Aren’t you guys glorifying Hitler’s memory?
Let’s get this straight. Hitler was an arsehole. Hitler was a disgusting, pus-ridden lump of excrement from the devil’s own anus. Before we go any further, let’s just reiterate that. As such, we think it is entirely appropriate to reduce him to an object of ridicule by comparing his physical appearance with a collection of fluffy, cute moggies.
So uh… if you need a good laugh (and who doesn’t these days?), mosey on down to catsthatlooklikehitler.com. I myself hate both cats and Hitler so this Web site is perfect for me!
