I swear this happens every year. Walgreens have had to pull a selection of Hanukkah wrapping paper because it features a swastika shape design. Settle people, it is actually the ancient Sanskrit symbol from Hinduism that means good luck, but given it appears on a specifically Jewish celebration product I’m thinking insensitive.

You know your country is screwed when you have to set up a task force to scour the historical archives looking for unpaid reparations to starve off bankruptcy . Seems Germany may still owe Greece some $7.5 million for Nazi war crimes . Greece believes they still have the right to lay claim to the unpaid World War II money. Hmm, this could be interesting considering Germany has been the biggest donor of bail out packages for the debt ridden country since Greece’s plummet from the Eurosphere .
Hey Loons, get your pocket money out, Hitler’s bed sheets are up for auction. Oooh, imagine rolling around in that Nazi linen? A single white bedsheet and pillowcase embroidered with swastikas and Adolph’s initials could be yours for around £3000. Seems Hitler’s trusty housekeeper Anni Winter removed a lot of Hitler’s personal items after he and Eva commited soup pudding in the bunker and the items are now resurfacing around auction houses in Europe. Hmm, I have my doubts Adolph ever slept in a single bed, unless of course Eva kicked him out for snoring. Anywho, anyone who doesn’t fear bad karma can bid next week in Bristol.
Nancy Wake the most decorated servicewoman of WWII has died at 98. A trained nurse and then spy, she became a key player in the French Resistance against the Nazis. She was so good at avoiding capture the gestapo eventually nicknamed her the white mouse. She lead them merry dance throughout the war by blowing up installations, distributing weapons, delivering secret codes to the Allies on her bicycle and killing a few SS soldiers along the way. Despite being awarded the highest decorations from the French , British and Americans , Wake received Jack from the country where she grew up, Australia because she was born in New Zealand (moved to Australia when she was 1) and never fought as an Australian servicewoman . In 2001 she left Australia telling the government of the time it “could stick their medals where the monkey stuck his nuts”. Attagirl. Three years later she had a change of heart and accepted the Companion of the Order of Australia. She passed away peacefully at her retirement home in west London. RIP White Mouse.
