I'm going to give subby the benefit of the doubt and assume subby isn't a native English speaker.

He should have used the "I know nothing!" defense, it worked pretty good for Sgt. Schultz.

When I first looked at this I thought it was a nazi sugar cookie. That sounds evil and delicious. Sadly this is a pin and therefore not edible.

To be fair, the cake depicts a DEAD Nazi.

When my sister had her first communion party my mother was so worried the baker would misspell "communion" she wrote it out for him. The cake came back

Happy Frist Communion

I'm not sure which is worse; the fact the writer compared a baker with SS soldiers for baking a cake. The fact that the bakery has pictures of Nazi-Hitler themed cakes to choose from. Or the fact that Austrian law prohibits any type of propaganda that glorifies symbols from the World War II period. The actually cake in question is way down on the list of what's wrong in the story.

At first I was like...

"If it's requested, it's made," said Klaschka, according to MSNBC. "I don't want to be pulled into this because I'm a confectioner, and there's nothing more to it."

...OK, didn't want to cause a problem with a customer, and yeah, he probably knew propaganda was illegal but thought "hey, it's just a damn cake" and figured that the censorship laws wouldn't be an issue, but then I was like...

...pictures of the Nazi-Hitler-themed cakes are kept in a binder that customers are allowed to peruse.

...dude. You're actively promoting your Nazi cake?

Lots of people in other countries actually think Americans are crazy for allowing the level of freedom of speech that we enjoy.
As an American, I find it difficult to wrap my head around.

Pretty much. I was on his side right up until the whole ordering off the decoration menu thing. As much as I hate hypersensitivity and support free speech, DUDE, it's ON YOUR DECORATION LIST. It's not like people came in with a photograph that he just airbrushed on...

That's right up there with, "I only sold the kid weed because he asked me if he could buy some"

I'd rather have a cake depicting a nuclear blast. Possibly in the 20 megaton range. Nothing fancy. A simple ground detonation with the mushroom cloud rising majestically towards the heavens. Maybe put a few people around the epicenter. Capture them being roasted by the fireball.

My wife will pick it up at 5. She'll have a ridiculous hat on. Please don't make mention of the hat. She tends to get stabby.

You would probably feel differently if you were a native German or Austrian.

Stoopid juice probably want their ovens taken away, too.

Like a speakeasy during prohibition. BANG BANG BANG. Quick, it's a raid, flip all the cookies.

There prolly are things we shouldn't allow. It would have been nice to ban the Confederate Battle Flag as part of the post Civil War amendments. Oh well.
