"The Nazi hunter's ultimate prize."

It's art. Not saying it's good. Just pointing at it.

The first pic was of a sea turtle in an aquarium in Hanover and I thought, "Why would the Nazi hunter prize be a turtle...?"

Then I saw the Hitler thing....ew. Creepy.

Cat: Thanks for the "heads" up. I've fixed the link.

As art it kind of fails the "who on Earth would want to own this artwork" check.

I doubt you could get a rug that big outta just Hitler. Goering, of course!, but I gotta think you'd need to stitch on Goebels, and maybe Himmler just to get something that size.

I'm just sayin'!

A bearskin coat out of Stalin, a scarf outta Lenin, and a nice wooly hat out of Trotsky's head! Gimme a kevlar vest made from Rasputin, and my (T)Rousseau Archipelago is complete!

due to inferior workmanship it will fall apart of it's own accord in a few years...

Eww, no just no.

I've always wanted to make love in front of a roaring fire, on top of a rug.

But the last thing I want to be staring at as we reached a crescendo of passion, is Der F├╝hrer.

I mean, that would make me feel like Magda Goebbels, or something.

Cheers,
Victoria

LOL @ Ron's "kevlar vest made from Rasputin" comment.

Not sure if the link is actually fixed. I got a picture of Chief Illiniwek.

Surely there's art there, too, in spite of the controversy over native Americans as mascots? Describing him as a Nazi hunter's prize seems a tad harsh. I didn't even know Nazis hunted Illini.

I hate Illinois Nazis.

Ooh, a survivor of the infamous Skokie rally, I see, Pastor_Jeff.

Roaring is risky, trust me. Those spitting sparks get everywhere they shouldn't.

A fire-guard is an option, but hey it's another kind of condom and equally off-putting.

When the time comes - I'm sure it shall - either have that extra glass of champagne while the hearth fire settles; or, if you can't wait, move the rug.

Very practical nation we British.

I've been suspicious for a while, but this clinches it.

You're really from Schenectady, aren't you?

You're really from Schenectady, aren't you?

Will you pop over and teach me how to pronounce it? (I've got this really great rug I bought in an art sale.)

If you're coming can you fetch some logs. Champagne I have, but I'm all outta logs.

Cheers

Oh, what the hell!

I've had worse chat up lines.

...My very own Log Lady! David Lynch you should be living now :-)

"I carry a log - yes. Is it funny to you? It is not to me. Behind all things are reasons. Reasons can even explain the absurd. Do we have the time to learn the reasons behind the human being's varied behaviour? I think not. Some take the time. Are they called detectives? Watch - and see what life teaches."

This is love. Truly, madly, deeply.

For Heavens Sake, Victoria, if you're going to lose the 'little pants' make sure you've brought the 'little shirt!'

Ron, the only cod that is going to get eaten, is the one on the Imperatriz Leopoldinense float.
