Did you get your Hitler tea kettle from JC Penny?
What do you mean you had no idea there was a Hitler tea kettle? There are a lot of things out there that look like Hitler, and this tea kettle is just the latest. If you relax and stare at the whole image, it looks like a little Hitler, giving his recognizable salute. Once the image of the tea kettle hit the web (on Reddit, of course), it sold out in hours. It's understandable that people would relish an opportunity to put Hitler over a flame and watch with glee as he finally began to scream uncontrollably. If nothing else, it's a conversation starter: Have you seen Hitler, lately? No? Well, come on in. He's sitting in the kitchen! What if this gives JC Penny an incentive to go a step further, and, instead of stocking accidentally Nazi merchandise, they just start selling unabashedly Nazi merch, such as:
- The Third Rice Cooker
- SSential Oils
- Seig Heil Heels
- Master Race Cars
- Concentration Camp Concentration!
If you're interested in buying one of these tea kettles, they are still available in stores. You just have to walk in and ask for the Nazi party supplies. If they're out and you still need a tea kettle, you may have to head over to the Martha Stewart collection which will probably be just slightly more embarrassing than telling them you're sad that you missed Hitler.
Would you buy one of these?
