Lookalikes - 2

Have any other readers of this blog noticed the uncanny similarity of my boy Guthlac and celebrated monorchidous anti-Tziganist Austrian lance-corporal fuckwit and mainstay of the GCSE history syllabus Adolf Hitler?

He has got the same cheeks.

Gadjo Dilo said...

Gyppo, I hadn't noticed it before but.... It's probably just a phase he's going through.

No. One is in colour, the other, in black and white. Duh.
Sx

It's funny how we get more right-wing as we get older.

Gyppo Byard said...

Jules - as long as it's only the cheeks.

Gadjo - I sincerely hope so.

Scarls - You are too reliant on your sense of vision. Try to be more tactile.

Boyo - If this is what he's like at 18 months, by the age of 5 he'll have turned into Jeremy Clarkson...

You mean the Nazis weren't saluting, just telling their dads they wanted a wee? So WW2 was a giant misunderstanding?

When the fake Hitler diaries came out in the early 80s I proposed that they would support the "misunderstanding" thesis as well, with a Pooterish Fuehrer being misled by the evile Dr Goebbels etc.

"2nd September 1939: Goebbels and Goerring took me on a driving tour of western Poland. Never been there before, and I can't imagine why relations were so bad. There were barely any border formalities, and everyone I met spoke excellent German. A bit like in Prague last March. Just goes to show that we can all get alone if we try."

Inkspot - I did actually enounter a top-grade nutter on a messageboard once who swore blind that misguided German toilet-training was responsible for WWII.

Boyo - we demand more.

I feel should point out that Guthlac was actually waving at someone by folding and unfolding his hand at the end of an outstretched arm, and the photo (taken by Mrs Byard) just happened to catch an "unfold" moment. We didn't realise exactly what she'd captured until we looked at the photos days later...

Hitler's parents probably thought he was cute at that age. More importantly, Mr Gypppo, what have you done with Mrs Pouncer? After meeting you she has disappeared! Is she locked up in your caravan?

Gyppo Byard said...

Dapphers m'dear - I too am baffled by the mysterious disappearance of Mrs Pouncer. Her failure to e-mail me may be linked to the fact that she left the paper with my private e-mail on at my neighbour's house (whether deliberately or accidentally I could not say)...
