Dateline Berlin, where the late fascist evil person was a featured wax personage at Madame Tussauds along the likes of Hollywood celebrities, sports figures and contemporary/historical politicians. At least until someone decapitated him on opening day:
Just minutes after the museum opened, the 41-year-old German man
pushed aside two security men guarding the figure before ripping off
the head in protest at the exhibit, a police spokesman said. The police
were alerted and arrested the man.
The waxwork figure of a glum-looking Adolf Hitler in a mock bunker
during the last days of his life was criticized as being in bad taste.
A media preview of the new branch of Madame Tussauds Thursday was
overshadowed by a row over the exhibit.
Why so glum, Hitler?
Frankly, it couldn’t have happened to a better genocidal maniac.
At least it wasn’t a story about some weird proof of love, a la Nicolas Cage’s wooing of Patricia Arquette. Because really, no matter how quirky you are, love should never mean having to say, "Bring me the head of Adolf Hitler."[cross-posted from MyUrbanKvetch]
