Announcing the Hitler Tea Pot

29 May

Our occasional look at political correctness run amok.

Parts of the Internet are all riled up over a tea kettle.

On the freeway near Culver City, California there’s a billboard from JC Penny.

Some folks says it’s advertising … Adolf Hitler.

Take a look for yourself.

Hitler-Kettle-sized

We suppose one could think that if they squint real hard or have 20/400 vision along with a vivid imagination.

Either way, they shouldn’t be driving.

The kettle in question – the Michael Graves Design Bells and Whistles Stainless Steel Tea Kettle – also appears on the department store’s website.

When we have enough Yukon Jack we’ve been known to see pink elephants.

Which makes as much sense as seeing Hitler in a tea pot.

UPDATE: JC Penny sold out the tea kettle in 24 hours. Make of that what you will.
