Hitler whistled at me this morning. Or maybe that was my teapot.

Cool story, but it's not like he walked up to Hitler and put his middle finger right in his face.  Now that would have been legendary!

I liked the bit about Owens at the bottom even more. Couldn't even use the "white entrance  or the "white elevator" to get to his own party.

Hmmmm. The guy who gave Hitler the finger claimed to have given Hitler the finger, when asked about it later.

Let me tell you about the time I beat up John Cena...

We collectively gave Hitler the finger when we didn't dip our flag in the 1936 olympics.

That wasn't a snub at Hitler - it's part of the US Flag Code:


§176. Respect for flag
No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing.

He gave Hitler the finger after going straight through Falken's maze.

I chuckled, but you know he was shot by one of his own countrymen, right?  (Accidentally, but still.)

I would have thought it was Jesse Owens who did that...  oh wait.

um....no
There is a story that Hitler snubbed 4 time gold medal winner Jesse Owens by leaving the Olympic Stadium when he was supposed to be congratulating medal winners, including Owens.  Owens denied the claim that Hitler snubbed him during the games, "Hitler had a certain time to come to the stadium and a certain time to leave.  It happened he had to leave before the victory ceremony after the 100 meters. But before he left, I was on my way to a broadcast and passed near his box. He waved at me and I waved back."  Hitler also later sent Owens an inscribed commemorative photograph of himself.  Owens further went on to say, "Hitler didn't snub me - it was FDR who snubbed me. The President didn't even send me a telegram... When I came back to my native country, after all the stories about Hitler, I couldn't ride in the front of the bus. I had to go to the back door. I couldn't live where I wanted. I wasn't invited to shake hands with Hitler but I wasn't invited to the White House to shake hands with the President either."

Bob Young's "coolest ever" accomplishment was a very unique one.  He gave the finger to Adolf Hitler.

Sometimes, if the gestapo wasn't around, we'd give him the finger."


I hate stories that waste my time.

Martonio: Cool story, but it's not like he walked up to Hitler and put his middle finger right in his face.  Now that would have been legendary!


Yeah, that's what I was hoping for.
