Santa with Outlawed Hitler Salute.

From The Largest Minority:

Miniature wooden Santa figures were removed from Rossmann stores, a German retail chain, after customers claimed they looked like they were giving the outlawed Hitler salute.

“We were astonished by the reaction,” Josef Lange, a spokesman for Rossmann said. “It looks like he’s just pointing up to the sky and we were surprised that anyone saw the so-called ‘Hitler salute’ in that. But we responded and had the entire inventory removed and destroyed.”

"we responded and had the entire inventory removed and destroyed."

But at least they didn't gas them. :-)

(I can make these jokes because i am german myself ;-) )
