MasterThief: The U.S. government owns one called the Horst Wessel.

At least it used to be. (Try to guess what it is now, you'll be surprised!)

Isitoveryet: now wait a minute, nothing was made by ze nazi Germanz.
they made the jews do all the work then slapped their name on it and called it mine.


With a little work that could've been even dumber. You fail at failing.

Rapmaster2000: Thusly Farked: What if you named your daughter after a high-ranking Nazi SS official?

I know a girl named Ava married to a Jew. Awkward.


I know a Jew named Christine... and she officiated at my wedding and I'm an atheist

strathmeyer: "He said Heerema's son Edwin's desire to honour his father was understandable up to a point, but the choice of name was "tasteless and unethical"."

He tried to name it the HNLMS My Dad Genocided And Everyone Thought It Was Awesome?

There's nothing in the article that suggests this guys father did anything other than live in German during Nazi rule.


Except for being a member of the SS. That was in the article.

/maybe my reading comprehension skills are lower than I thought

oh I don't believe it. S.S. and Hitler back to back trips the shiat filter even if you put a period or a line break between them. Cue facepalm.

Tom_Slick Tr0mBoNe: When is the U.S.S. George W. Bush getting built?

The next carrier is the George H.W. Bush commisioning scheduled for 2009, next up is the Gerald Ford, expected completion date 2015, after that I would expect the ship to be named Kennedy, so somewhere around 2031.


The USS Kennedy (CV-67} was ordered less than 6 months after his death, commissioned in 1968 and decommissioned last year. She's mothballed in Philadelphia at the moment.

While the Navy does re-use names, it's unlikely to do so quite so quickly.

So this guy became a Nazi to fight Stalin, who by all accounts was a much bigger Sumbiatch with a final body count even bigger than Hitlers, joined the resistance during the war, placing himself and his family at risk every day, and went on to live a full and productive life after the war.

My wife's high school German teacher, better known as "Tante Usche", is a family friend; she's in her 70s and still sharp as a tack. When she was little girl in Germany during the war, she was a Hitlerjunge, mostly because if she wasn't she would get beat up every day at school, and her parents, who also joined the Nazi party, would have been suspect for not making her join. It was what you had to do to survive if you didn't of couldn't flee Germany- her father would have lost his job if he wasn't a party member. She's worn black on Hitler's birthday every year since 1945.

I guess I better stop being nice to her, though. Once a Nazi...

Seriously. Get over it.

It's a French tank, a CHAR B to be precise. Did anyone mention that yet?
