Kettle mistaken for Hitler

Hitler-kettleWell, not “mistaken for,” exactly.  But a Michael Graves-designed kettle on a JC Penney billboard in Los Angeles bore enough of a resemblance to Hitler (if you squinted) that it suddenly became a hot item and sold out.   People are so weird….

And just like that, the listing on JC Penney’s website is gone, as is the billboard.
