Six O'Clock Hitler! Talking Dogs and Nazi Urinals!


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.

Six O'Clock Hitler???? WTF????!!!! 6時のヒトラー?


OK. So I do this nationally broadcast FM radio show called, "6 O'Clock Yatsura" which roughly translates into, "Those guys at 6 O'Clock."

I started a new corner on the show (in keeping with the title "6 O'Clock Yatsura") called "6 O'Clock Hitler." Because, as everyone knows the two keywords to always say on any radio show to increase ratings are: "Sex" and "Hitler."

... Get it? "6 O'Clock Ya-su-ra..." "6 O'Clock Hi-to-ra..." 

No? Ok, well you gotta speak Japanese to get the joke (they sound alike)...

Anyhow, here's today's stories:


A new book has revealed that during the Second World War British forces came up with the idea of sneaking estrogen - the female sex hormone - into Hitler’s food to make him less aggressive.

The book - written by Professor Brian Ford - claims that British spies came up with the idea as the war seemed to be heading towards a stalemate.

Chosen for its tasteless properties, it was hoped that the estrogen would slowly take effect - calming the Fuhrer and making him more like his secretary.

The book also outlines other genius Nazi-beating plots such as dropping glue on troops to make them stick to the ground and disguising bombs as tins of fruit.


Shit! Of course, you knew that already! Here's an even more bizarre Hitler story:
There are some weird houses around the world, but there is a house in England (of course) that looks exactly like Hitler! .Is this a picture of a Swansea house? Or is it a portrait of former Nazi leader Adolf Hitler? It's almost impossible to tell the difference!
That's what Charli Dickenson thought when she posted a picture of the property on Twitter, commenting 'I've found Hitler reincarnated'.
The snap was subsequently re-tweeted by comedian Jimmy Carr, who obviously agreed with the Fuhrer connection.

Do you know any houses that look like evil dictators? If so, please get in touch...

Thanks to Student Beans for finally educating our fricking dimwit university students on something important that they can use in life.

The Making of a "Geisha" in Photos


Several years ago my friend, Ken Nishikawa (you can see his Youtube channel here), and I shot a commercial for an anniversary for the Fiat 500cc.

This is the making of that commercial:



Here are some of the stills from that commercial... This is the process that most people never see: The making of a "Geisha." 

All photos by Ayumi Maeno. Thanks to Matsuchiyo and Koichi for the costume and dressing. (Who is Matsuchiyo? Watch this....) As I recall, the entire make up and dressing for the "Geisha" took about 4.5 hours.

This is like a religious experience..... Enjoy!
