Adolf Hitler Teakettle? Really?

Slow news day? From the CBS site, "A J.C. Penney billboard in California has stirred up controversy after some say the tea kettle in the advertisement looks like Adolf Hitler. KCBS-TV's Dave Lopez reports."

I have to confess I don't see it. But it was apparently good for business. Maybe it's finally time to roll out my line of Josef Stalin duvet covers.

For more on this Hitler teakettle thing, here's an article I wrote recently at the Taste of English Tea site.

Also, from the good people at Roadside America, an older piece on Adolf Hitler's Tea Service, which resides in the Berman Museum of World History in Anniston, Alabama. As the text notes, Hitler was apparently not very keen on tea, but kept the service on hand for the benefit of guests. More info here.
