Some very awesome music based animation. I like.

A store owner in Oberlin, Ohio, decided to pull a Christmas
display out of his store window after the designer went a bit too far.
"A few of his other displays were on the edge," said store owner
Charlie Palmer, "but never that crazy." The display featured
gingerbread men dressed as Nazi storm troopers. In another window, a
snowman sits under a hair dryer in a suicide attempt. "I want people to
say 'Oh, my gosh'," said window artist Keith McGuckin. "And once they
look at it, say, 'It is kind of pretty'." As for the Nazi theme, "I can
differentiate between real Nazis and the atrocities they performed
compared to these little gingerbread men, but I guess some people
can't." McGuckin's display at the store last year included a little boy
making crystal meth using his new chemistry set. (Elyria
Chronicle-Telegram) ...Which, he explains, is what led Scrooge to have
his hallucinations.

Wow... I wonder what kind of store he ran. That would even offend me and I don't get offended very easily.

Do you have ANY idea how difficult it is to read that phrase and drink coffee at the same time?

Okay, if we all pretend it's the cast of "Springtime for Hitler" we can laugh and not feel guilty - right?

I saw this on the local news. I think the guy should have employed some common sense. Most people don't want to see those kinds of things around Christmas, or rather, ever.

I think I'm a terrible person, because this makes me laugh. It's just too ridiculous. Obviously, I'm not laughing at the history, but gingerbread Nazis! WTF! How could he think this was a good idea?!

Nothing says Christmas like goose-stepping pastry

Nazi gingerbread men?!? At Christmas?! What were his plans for Easter, I wonder? The Manson Family visiting the Easter Bunny, perhaps. Or later in the year he could do a Donner Party Thanksgiving display.

Crash Bandacoots a Playstation game. The background sounds and music matches the video music quite well.

I just thought I'd add to my own post. I had a dream where I was trying to bribe the Nazi's not to hurt my family last night. And I blame my entry. It was scary!
