WOAH! This "Six O'Clock Hitler" stuff is getting really heavy! To see the radio show homepage, click here.
Anyway, this is a radio show "corner" that talks about the real, true stuff, that is quite bizarre about everyone's favorite dictator; Al Hitler.
We had two wild (but true) stories today!
Years of research by DR Jan Bondeson of Cardiff university has revealed the bizarre but true account of Hitler’s Nazi dog academy.
Even more bizarre are the reports of the school’s successes; dogs writing poetry, stating preferred political candidates and imitating human voices. When asked who Adolf Hitler was, one canine apparently answered ‘Mein Fuhrer’.
Regular dogs just point. Those German dogs asked questions!
Hitler ordered his army to investigate the possibility of using educated dogs in the field, enabling Nazi animal psychologists to create their ‘talking dog’ school. They were part of a tradition that believed dogs were nearly as intelligent as humans.
Hitler’s long term hopes were that dogs would be able to communicate with their SS commanders and free up guards in concentration camps by taking over their duties.
Dr Bondeson reveals the history of Hitler's hounds in his recent book "Amazing Dogs: A Cabinet of Canine Curiosities." He describes the findings as a "really remarkable and fascinating insight into a hitherto unknown facet of Nazi Germany". And also ****ing hilarious.
His book also includes chapters on acting dogs, travelling dogs, turnspit dogs (a dog bred to run on a wheel in order to turn meat...) holy dogs and exceptionally faithful dogs.
It's only May and I already know what I want for Christmas.
The next story is shocking in it's simplicity.
You know how men's urinals are always dirty because guys don't stand close enough and they pee on the floor? Well, this is a big problem and companies and government's spend hundreds of millions of dollars a year on toilet cleanup?
So much money is spent that toilet manufacturers are always coming up with ideas to make guys stand closer so they don't pee on the floor.
Like little red dots that get redder if you pee right on them?
Rumor has it that the world's biggest toilet maker, after years of investment and research, have come up with a urinal that cuts down dribble by 98.7%! And the idea is so simple! It is a hitler urinal sticker to put in men's toilets that would make Hitler's face turn red if you peed directly on him.
The plan had been on hold as the the words "Hitler and Toto" sound too much alike "Hitler and Tojo."
But you got to admit it. Just seeing this makes you want to go pee and pee more often. If this doesn't make one stand closer, nothing will.
