    ZAGREB – Small packets of sugar bearing the likeness of Adolf Hitler and carrying Holocaust jokes have been found in some cafes in Croatia, prompting an investigation, the office of the state prosecutor said on Monday

    Knock, knock.

    Who's there?

    The Gestapo.

    The Gestapo who?

    Open the door. It's time to die.



    That one will never get old.

    Are Nazis as offended by Hogan's Heroes reruns as the rest of the world is offended by Holocaust jokes?

    I don't think Nazis would necessarily be offended, or at least they wouldn't express such a thing.

    "You know, Hogan's Heroes would have you believe that we are all bumbling idiots. I resent that, because Nazis have an illustrious history of being ruthless killers. Of course, Hogan's Heroes totally ignores that."

    Aren't all those assholes dead or in prison yet? If not, that particular job remains sadly unfinished.

    Hogan's Heroes was a fascinating montage of cultural stereotypes.

    Hogan: tough, resourceful American leader
    Sgt. Carter: idiot-savant from the sticks
    LeBeau: weasely, food-obsessed French guy
    Newkirk: snotty English asshole
    Fortunately, the black guy, Kinchloe, was not a stereotype character.

    and those wacky Germans
    Clink: effete bourgeois fuckup
    Schultz: wurst-munching, goodhearted prole type

    Interestingly, the actors who portrayed Clink, Schultz, LeBeau and Gen. Burkhalter were Jewish. "LeBeau" and "Schultz" were actually in concentration camps at one point.

    My father (World War II vet, Jewish) wouldn't let us watch Hogan. And he was enraged that Der Bingle had a hand in producing it.
