The Nazis hated that sunglasses-wearing dog who made fun of Hitler

During World War II, a Finnish man named Tor Borg had a dog named Jackie, who Borg’s wife nicknamed Hitler. Jackie would respond to the command “Hitler” by raising her paw, which infuriated the German government.

Mr Borg was called into the German embassy for questioning, where he admitted that his wife Josephine – a known anti-Nazi German – had called the dog Hitler, but denied being involved in anything “that could be seen as an insult against the German Reich”.

The Germans didn’t believe Borg but couldn’t get any witnesses to testify against him and his dog.

Killer Nazi space mirror

Killer Nazi space mirror

Near the end of World War Two, some German scientists made plans to build a large mirror that they would have launched into space and used to focus sun rays into a super-hot point. Luckily, physics tells us this idea would never work. At the distance the Germans were planning to put their mirror, their light beam would’ve hit the Earth with a 40-mile diameter and not been hot enough to create any damage.

KKK snowman

KKK Snowman

This KKK-themed snowman belongs to Mark of Hayden, Idaho. Mark’s previous adventures include hanging Aryan Nations and SS flags and giving out bullets for Halloween.

Mark refuted his neighbors claims, saying he didn’t actually pass out bullets, but rather he passed out bullet casings, and only did so after he ran out of candy.

On top of everything else, Mark doesn’t even buy enough candy for Halloween. For shame.
