OK, here’s the thing Italian advertising agency, making a fashion ad featuring Hitler in friggin pink, with a heart armband instead of the swastika, is only gonna get you grief. Duh! The giant poster which was placed on a billboard in Palermo, Sicily, has enraged the locals. The agency defended their work by saying the caption “Change Your Style. Don’t Follow Your Leader.” was intended to ridicule the Nazi dictator not “minimize his crimes”. Hmm, not according to the local association of partisans who said it is offensive, especially to everyone who fought against fascism and should be removed immediately. Oh crap, if they hated that billboard wait until next month when it’s replaced with Mao, China’s communist dictator!

OK, you have two choices, prison or house arrest with your wife, which do you choose? Hmm, well if you are Santo Gambino from Sicily you pick the first option. Santo was originally arrested and placed in a Palermo jail for dumping hazardous waste but was later moved to house arrest. A short time later he went to police begging to be sent back to prison because his wife was giving him the shits. Seems wifey was whinging about his failure to provide for her and the kids blah, blah, blah, blah . Nowhere to run, poor bastard. Police , though empathetic, charged him with violating the conditions of his sentence and made him go back home to get more of the same.
