There once was an old man who was loved by everyone in the town where
he lived. When he died, they buried him at a scenic location along a
river. A few days later there was a great rain storm and the river
flood coffin was carried along the river in to the town. The casket
flowed down the street past the supermarket and the school all the
way into the pharmacy. It slid right in to the pharmacy and onto the
counter. The lid popped open and the old man sat straight up and
asked the pharmacist - "Do you have anything to stop this coffin? "
(And on a not so fun note... I just went through FOUR links of Youtube's I had saved that were removed for violation of terms of service or what not. Dangit. :( I'm changing my opinion on the Youtube Acquisition. Boo.)
Speaking of unfriendly acquisitions...
That's Hitler... rapping. It's funny/disturbing/bizarre... Quite strange. Interested in your opinions. -- Probably nsfw.. cause it's arguably the most evil man of the past century. Though it is Halloween... I dunno. just wanting to be careful. ;)
Check your candy. Check your kids candy.
Don't go into strangers houses unless it's guaranteed amazing action... ;)
You know the drill.
Umm.. notice how the first part of my description for the video was Funny?
And believe it or not, I do know a thing or two about history. I feel that what Hitler did overall and the breadth of what Hitler did in the short amount of time he had to accomplish his atrocities was the most terrible of any of those you mentioned.
I believe that he was evil. I believe that every one of us has the potential for evil, and his was magnified by power, and those who had honed their own cruel and wicked natures that surrounded him.
I'm not exactly sure what point you're trying to make with your comment?
I mean... for Hitler being such a normal guy, are you more sympathetic to him then the other tyrants you mentioned? Is he more likable because he's represented in a funny music video?
I'm not defending Hitler, although it was a common joke among that Allies he was our biggest ally during WW2 because of all the idiotic decisions he made.
I didn't mean to cause a heated debate, that was not my intention at all, I'm way more into peaceful discussion. That was my intention, I'm sorry if I offended anyone. :(
I just wanted to vent some thoughts and now that this has become more of a heated arguement, I don't think I'll try to continue it since I'm a pacifist and all. :)
I don't think we should be offended by Hitler 60 years later, if we can't joke about sensitive issues, they will never cease to be sensitive issues.
But again, this video was very funny.
Okay, cool. I misinterpreted the tone of your post, I'm afraid. I was really surprised because the way I read it wasn't how you've ever come accross in the past so we'll blame it on my very very long day. lol.
Sorry I got snappy, truly.
And I think there's definitely a place for satire and joking, but I really do think one needs to be respectful of victims too. There's a fine fine line and all of that jazz.
Not that there's many direct victims of WWII and specifically the Holocaust left. :(
