Man Rips Off Adolph Hitler's Head

A man ripped off the head of Adolph Hitler in Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum
Someone has a big problem with diabolical dead guys. The newest Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum had barely opened in Berlin when some deranged fool targeted Adolph Hitler's waxy numbskull for a field maneuver.

The 41-year old German man knocked Hitler's block clean off. Actually, he ripped Adolph's noggin clean off the body. Tore it right off. Hey, it's wax, not an actual person. What do you expect?

Well for one thing, I expect Madame Tussaud and her crew of cronies to have more sensitivity about undesirable historical figures. The wax edifice was in bad taste and shouldn't have been part of the opening display. It's also illegal in Germany to glorify Hitler or to display Nazi symbols or art. Go explain that to the judge.

While they're at it, why not do a wax figure of a Cossack charging on horse back? Throughout history, pograms also helped decimate the Jewish population, although on a much smaller scale than Hitler and the Third Reich.

On the other hand, vigilante head ripping, even from a wax figure, is just plain nutty and rightfully punishable by fine and/or jail time. At best, it's destruction of private property. At worst, attempted symbolic annihilation. Either way, the guy's a little off, although I applaud his ability to take matters into his own hands. That big glob of goo must have been heavy.

Maybe he needed the head for his own neck. Next time, buddy, be more discreet about your foibles.
