    I won't quote the entire article but it's an interesting, if not humorous, read.

    I could see the one about the Jewish church parking lot one, I mean, many things with Hitler and Jews will offend someone down the line, but it wasn't made to offend anyone, intentionally.

    W00t! 1130 posts, so far.

    I am extremely sensitive to issues of antisemitism and am a strong supporter of Israel and the Jewish people but I found these parodies hilarious. They don't humanize him in my opinion, rather portray him as an idiot. During WWII parodies of hitler were common in the UK and U.S. and I don't think any of those were meant to be flattering.
