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

his hallucinations.

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?!
