German Retailer: Yeah, Maybe The Hitler Mugs Were A Bad Idea
April 11, 2014 - 12:41 pm
A German furniture store chain has apologised for selling mugs with Adolf Hitler’s face on them.
The ceramic cups feature a faint image of a Nazi-era postage stamp with Hitler’s profile on it, postmarked with a swastika stamp.
The mug also features a rose and handwriting in English.
The Zurbrueggen furniture chain apologised for the “terrible” mistake, which it blamed on “a stupid chain of unfortunate circumstances”.
The cups’ Chinese designer had mistakenly chosen the image of the former dictator, it said, which the chain then ordered in error – 5,000 of them.
Sure, blame it on the Chinese.
I’m pretty sure they know who Hitler is too.
