Yeah, I heard about this on the radio the other day.

That teapot cracks me up so bad. It reminds me of a South Park Hitler.

Apparently people have been selling that teapot for big bucks on ebay.

That's frickin awesome. I want a Mussolini waffle iron.

How could the advertising execs Nazi the resemblance?

JC Penney said that they didn't understand der fuehrer over this.

In other news, the teapot just annexed the kettle!

So they are going to act like it wasn't done on purpose. "Oh, was that wrong? We have to say we didn't know that was wrong. If we would have known we wouldn't have done it."

tha **** outta here......

I found this kind of fascinating. Goes to show you that negative publicity is still publicity.

If this teapot looked like JFK, people would love it. I guess roasting jews is more frowned upon than I thought...

This is a strange world we live in.

So the manufacturer of that teapot now sees its product discontinued, because the marketing idiots for JCP arranged the photo shoot in an accidentally inappropriate way? That's harsh.
